“We’re determined to keep up the pace of work at Aljada, where 3,200 homes are now under construction, and look forward to working with our partner GAC to bring this vibrant new district to life. Elsewhere on the Aljada job site, our teams are now closing in on the completion of the second phase of Madar, the popular family entertainment district, and we look forward to opening new and exciting attractions to the public within the coming months.”

Nasaq District accommodates 649 homes ranging from one- to three-bedroom apartments, characterized by stylish and contemporary architecture.

Each home in Nasaq benefits from modern and spacious interiors, and comes with smart home features and white goods added as standard. Other facilities at Nasaq include an exclusive, residents-only gym and swimming pool.

Spread over a 24 million square foot area, Aljada is Sharjah’s largest-ever project and a transformational destination for the Emirate. Aljada contains numerous residential districts, extensive retail, hospitality, entertainment, sporting, educational, and healthcare components and a business park, all set within a green urban master plan.

With over 25,000 homes planned for Aljada in total, Arada has so far sold 9,000 units, with 6,300 of those now completed.
