Arada begins handover of 101 high-end Sharjah townhouses

UAE developer Arada has begun the handover process for 101 high-end townhouses and semi-detached villas in the Sarab community, located within the first residential phase of the AED24-billion Sharjah megaproject Aljada. 
With this, Arada has now completed almost 1,000 units since it handed over its first homes in Aljada in January this year. 
The developer has also awarded the deal to build the second Sarab villa community at Aljada to Dubai-based RAQ Contracting. 
Valued at AED75 million, the contract will see the construction of 114 villas and townhouses over a 16-month period. Work on the community has already begun and is scheduled for completion in January 2023. 
CEO Ahmed Alkhoshaibi said: "The Sarab communities are important additions to the variety of residential offerings at Aljada, reflecting Arada’s determination to deliver great design, great facilities and great value, all at the same time, and it was no surprise to see both clusters sell out rapidly."
"We are grateful for our buyers’ trust and patience and look forward to supporting them through the lifetime of their investment with us. In addition, our award of the contract to build the second Sarab community shows our commitment to push forward at Aljada, where some 5,000 units are currently under construction," stated Alkhoshaibi.
The two Sarab communities feature the only villas and townhouses in the Aljada masterplan and are designed to make the most of green parks, natural light and ventilation to ensure the perfect living experience for couples and young families. 
All homes at Sarab come with smart home features as standard and a cooker, hood and washing machine/drier installed. 
According to Arada, the highlight of the first Sarab community is a hidden residents-only gym and swimming pool, which is surrounded by trees and built below ground level, thus complementing the sense of privacy and exclusivity found throughout the entire development.  
Although both communities are located in peaceful and secluded parts of Aljada, they are both just a few minutes’ walk away from Madar, a 1.9 million sq ft complex designed by Zaha Hadid Architects that is the fastest-growing leisure and entertainment space in the UAE. 
So far this year, Arada has handed over the seven Areej Apartments buildings and the three Rehan Apartments buildings in the first phase of Aljada, it added.
