Phase Three of Sharjah Sustainable City comprising 324 villas has been launched following “overwhelming response to its fully sold out first two phases”.
The sustainable residential community is being developed by Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) in partnership with Diamond Developers. It is said to meet the highest standards of social, environmental and economic sustainability, and extends over an area of 825,000sqft in the Al Rahmaniyah area in Sharjah. It comprises 1,250 sustainable villas divided into blocks of three-, four- and five-bedroom properties.
“We are deeply excited to bring esteemed homebuyers in the region and beyond a brand-new range of eco-friendly villas at Sharjah Sustainable City, offering a sustainable contemporary design and innovative architecture with the same high quality and commitment that the community has come to be known for,” said His Excellency Yousif Ahmed Al-Mutawa, Chief Executive Officer of Sharjah Sustainable City.
In June 2022, Big Project Middle East met with Diamond Developers to discuss progress at Sharjah Sustainable City and the impact the sustainable lifestyle development will have on the real estate sector.
The three, four and five-bedroom villas of phase three are said to offer a variety of layouts and views, and are located in an environment designed to improve quality of life for residents, without compromising the needs of future generations, as well as creating inspiring opportunities to minimise the community carbon footprint, a statement from the developer noted.
He added, “Powered by clean energy, providing an abundance of green space and with an affordable price range, the third phase of properties at Sharjah Sustainable City offers an unbeatable combination of sustainable lifestyle and future-proof real-estate investments. At a time when property investors and home buyers around the world are increasingly seeking green homes and a lifestyle that protects the planet, we are proud to be leading the field of sustainable development in the emirate of Sharjah. We are confident the response to the third phase of Sharjah Sustainable City will be even more robust than the first two phases.”
Phase one of the project, comprising three, four and five-bedroom townhouses, was a resounding success with property buyers, as was phase two with residential corner units encompassing three bedrooms, it added.
In August 2022, PNC Menon, Chairman of Sobha Group said that authorities are increasingly turning to the concept of smart cities to alleviate many of the issues they face today.
Using thermal insulating construction materials and windows, smart home automation, water-saving appliances, energy-saving electrical fittings and rooftop solar PVC installations, the residential properties of Sharjah Sustainable City are projected to deliver savings of up to 50% on electricity and water bills for residents. Environmental sustainability is also maintained through passive and active design strategies, including the green spine that runs through the centre of the community and supports vertical farming, reusing water for irrigation, and a waste-to-energy plant, the developer explained.
In addition, the development supports social sustainability through several amenities and community outreach programs such as cycling and jogging tracks, green parks and playgrounds, swimming pools and health clinics, the statement concluded.
In August 2022, Sharjah Commerce and Tourism Development Authority (SCTDA) announced a ‘Holiday Homes Project’ in the emirate.
