Overview

The project aims to link Sharjah’s heritage areas together, reflecting what Sharjah was like during the 1960s, and to transform it into a tourist and trade destination with modern contemporary artistic touches. In addition, it will be focused on completing the economic structure in accordance with the principles of sustainable development and environmental principles, in line with the latest international standards.
In view of its ambitious strategies, Shurooq seeks, through its landmark “Heart of Sharjah” project, to develop ancient houses and to transform these into hotels, restaurants, art galleries and markets, while preserving the local historical character of the Emirate.
Thus, the project will concentrate on archaeological sites and museums, the renovation of old and ancient houses, and the removal of current buildings and streets in the area to build a number of hotels and tourist facilities in line with the Emirate’s plans to safeguard its national historical character.
