Description: Located in the center of Sharjah City on Khalid Lagoon, this development forms the second phase of Al-Majaz Park which was also designed by WMPA and opened in 2012. It includes two groups of buildings at each end of the park, with 6 restaurants and cafes of international F&B outlet brands in each of them within around 4,000m2 of built up area. These two components are rotated to focus on the iconic musical fountain, but also have their own plaza and fountains. The architectural character continues the theme of the Phase 1 buildings, using colored walls, large glazing, decorative screens and pergolas, and natural stone walls, with geometric granite flooring patterns in the surrounding landscaped areas.
