Megaproject will be delivered in phases starting in 2019
Modern Building Contracting Company (MBCC) has been awarded the contract for construction of phase one of ARADA’s Aljada megaproject. According to a statement from ARADA, mobilisation will take place onsite in the coming weeks with full construction set to begin by the end of July.
The first four Areej Apartment blocks, which are part of phase one of the Sharjah megaproject, are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019. The four buildings will feature some 250 units in total.
HE Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, chairman of ARADA, said, “This award is an important milestone for Aljada as we move into the development phase of this iconic and transformational project. We’re pleased to be partnering with Modern Building Contracting Company and look forward to working closely with them to help deliver Aljada’s first homes.”
The latest announcement comes hot on the heels of several other announcements made by the developer in recent months. The Sharjah developer first launched the megaproject in the third quarter of 2017 and plans to deliver the 24m sqft development in phases, with full completion scheduled for 2025.
The developer said the project’s masterplan is carefully designed with walkability and wide green spaces in mind, allowing residents, workers and visitors the ability to live, work, play and be entertained within a fully integrated and sustainable community. Aljada is expected to have ample connectivity to surrounding areas, and is an all-encompassing district that comprises considerable retail, leisure and entertainment options, in addition to a wide range of residential and commercial offerings.
