Northern Emirates

Tourism and real estate development are key watchwords in the Northern Emirates, many of which boast a rugged, virtually pristine terrain that complements the glitzy appeal of their wealthy neighbours Dubai and Abu Dhabi – thus enabling the UAE to project itself as a total tourism package.

Aljada, Sharjah’s largest ever mixed-use project, is poised to get off the ground shortly, following the official launch of the development’s first phase consisting of around 1,000 units in early September.

As part of its planned Dh30-billion ($8.16 billion) investment in the UAE by 2026, Majid Al Futtaim is working on four City Centre projects in three of the Northern Emirates, including entirely new centres in Ras Al Khaimah and Sharjah and expansion of existing ones in Ajman and Sharjah.
