Sheikha Bodour bint Sultan Al Qasimi, Omran Properties chairperson of the board of directors and chairperson of Shurooq, said: "Sharjah is increasingly becoming an international focal point for business, hospitality, tourism and trade, and with the vital collaboration between government and the private sector, the emirate becomes an even more attractive proposition for domestic and foreign investors. These projects are a barometer of the confidence in Sharjah and an indication of its long term success."
The projects are expected to be officially launched later in 2017.
Omran Properties was established in 2016 through a partnership between Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq), Emaar Properties and Eagle Hills.
