Arada has announced the completion of the first homes in East Village, the third residential phase in its AED24 billion Sharjah megaproject Aljada. In total, 1,621 apartments have been finished across 14 buildings.

Featuring 2,000 units in total, East Village is targeted at the younger generation and consists of 16 apartment blocks that are characterised by fresh and bold designs.

Residents at East Village will benefit from large green spaces that will host regular events, art installations and pop-up retail outlets. Each apartment block has communal areas, with additional space set aside for local facilities, including small shops and cafes.

Home inspections will shortly begin at the 968 homes in the Riff 1-3 buildings, the Link 1-3 buildings and the Solo 1-2 buildings – which were completed at the end of last year, bringing the total number of homes finalised at Aljada during 2022 to 3,833.

A further 653 homes have just been completed in the Solo 3-4, Link 4-5 and Riff 4-5 buildings, with home inspections due to commence shortly.

Ahmed Alkhoshaibi, Group CEO of Arada, said, “East Village adds a new and vibrant dimension to the Aljada master plan, bringing in thousands of new residents and their families to enjoy a beautifully designed contemporary lifestyle surrounded by premium facilities and green landscaping. We are very grateful to all those buyers that placed their trust in Arada and welcome them to their new homes in this exciting community.

“This year will be another transformative one for Aljada, with more sections of the master plan coming to life in the coming months. Our goal for 2023 is to complete 2,500 homes at Aljada, as well as the second phase of the Madar family entertainment district, which includes Sharjah’s largest fitness centre, and we’ll also be opening extensive retail and dining spaces in several locations along Aljada’s East Boulevard.”

The completion of the first homes in East Village comes shortly after Arada’s announcement in December that all 2,473 fully furnished units in the Nest student housing community had also been finished.
