Pouring fast, pouring high

Located between Sharjah and Dubai, close to Dubai International Airport, yet close to all amenities – Sahara Tower 6 is a residential tower offering luxury apartments with various bedroom configurations. The first block has 39 floors and the second block has 21, the facilities include a gym, a communal garden area and 24/7 security services for facility management. Al Thuriah is committed to high-quality construction and chose MEVA KHK’s comprehensive engineering services and rental formwork to complete expansive concrete works.
