Valued at $136m (AED500m), Mirkaaz will be the first mall in the UAE to feature an atrium roof of more than 7,900m2, constructed using ETFE Technology to provide natural UV light within the mall. The project is expected to have more than 10 million visitors in its first year.

Funtastic Engineering Consultancy (FEC), a design and project management consultant incorporated in Abu Dhabi, has been appointed to provide the construction management of the project.

Construction of the mall, which is being built nearly 93,000m2 of land, will start in January 2018 and will be completed in the last quarter of 2019.

The mall will host a hypermarket, sprawling over 15,000m2 and will include more than 100 stores.

The agreement was signed by Yahya Al Jasmi, managing director of Ajman Holding and Yu Tao, president & CEO from China State Construction Engineering Corporation Middle East L.L.C (CSCEC ME), in the presence of HH Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, chairman of Ajman Holding.

Al Jasmi said: “Mirkaaz is in line with the ambitious Ajman 2021 initiative, which will set unprecedented standards for Ajman’s economy. The construction of the mall will lead to more than 1100 blue-collared workers and 50 engineers on site, offering direct and indirect job opportunities.”

Located at the juncture of Sharjah and Ajman, and near both Sharjah International Airport and Dubai International Airport, the shopping destination will be easily accessible via Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road.
