Arada will build a residential complex called Sarab Community, with greenery rooted in its design, for the Aljada megaproject in Sharjah.

The developer will build 109 townhouses and semi-detached villas, which will be located near Aljada's 1.9km² Central Hub, a $272m (AED1bn) entertainment centre designed by Zaha Hadid Architects.

Each home, available as a one-, two, or three-bedroom unit, will have gated back garden with direct access to a public park. Plants and tress will be used to landscape Sarab Community.

A subterranean, members-only gym, and swimming pool hidden by a canopy of trees, is another feature of the project.

HE Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, chairman of Arada, described Sarab Community as “a stunning addition” to the $6.5bn (AED24bn), 2.2km² Alajada development – the biggest real estate project in Sharjah.

“These tranquil garden homes are perfect for modern families who want to enjoy their privacy while still feeling connected to the pace of city life,” he added.  

Alajada was launched in September 2017 and has already become the fastest-selling residential community in Sharjah. Properties will be delivered to buyers in phases between 2019 and 2025.

News on the Sarab Community came days after Arada awarded BIC Contracting (BICC) a $28m (AED103m) infrastructure contract covering construction of power, water, and communications networks, as well as landscaping and roads for Aljada.

BICC's contract is part of the total $272m (AED1bn) infrastructure package designed by Texas-headquartered Jacobs.
