SHARJAH, 27th April, 2022 (WAM) — Arada has reached a major milestone at the Sharjah megaproject ‘Aljada,’ with the completion of its first residential phase. The delivery of 278 homes in the last two Misk Apartment buildings at the mixed-use community brings the total number of units finished at Aljada to 1,482, said an Arada press release on Wednesday.
The Misk Apartment buildings contain a range of one-, two- and three-bedroom luxury homes and a duplex four-bedroom penthouses at nearly 5,000 square feet in size.
Ahmed Alkhoshaibi, Group CEO of Arada, said, “We are pleased to conclude construction work on the first phase at Aljada, where a vibrant community is now taking shape, supported by a wealth of amenities, including extensive retail, F&B and entertainment outlets, all set in lush green landscaping.
“The completion of these beautiful homes is the first tranche of around 4,000 units scheduled to finish at Aljada in 2022. Meanwhile, we will continue to launch new residential products rapidly throughout the year to keep up with investor demand for our attractive off-plan offerings.”
The first residential phase in Aljada consists of 14 apartment blocks, the Sarab garden villa community and over 10,000 square feet of retail space. In addition, the first phase of the SABIS International School – Aljada was completed in August last year and opened in time for the 2021-2022 academic year.
The Madar entertainment district, which opened in 2020, has already welcomed nearly three million visitors.
Elsewhere on the Aljada job site, construction is ongoing at East Village, the second residential phase; Nest, the student housing complex; The Boulevard, a collection of high-end apartment buildings; the second and final phase of the SABIS International School – Aljada; the second phase of the Madar entertainment district; the second Sarab villa community; and eight blocks in the Naseej District creative neighbourhood.
Spread over a 24 million square feet area, Aljada is Sharjah’s largest ever project and a transformational destination for the Emirate.
