Al Qabdah Building Contracting clinches deal to build first stage of Al Narjis neighbourhood
Sharjah Holding has awarded Al Qabdah Building Contracting the contract to build the first stage of the Al Narjis neighbourhood in the emirate’s Al Zahia residential community.
The development plan of the Al Narjis neighbourhood includes a variety of three and four bedroom townhouses, and five bedroom villas, Sharjah Holding said.
It also features a neighbourhood park, which will include adventure play equipment for children, fitness stations and multi-functional open spaces. All homes will be close to the community hub, comprising convenience retail and public facilities.
“It is an exciting time for Sharjah Holding as we move forward with the construction of Al Narjis, the second neighbourhood in Al Zahia. We look forward to beginning work in the coming months and seeing our thriving community continue to expand and evolve,” said Walid Al Sayegh, chairman of Sharjah Holding, which is a partnership between the Government of Sharjah and Majid Al Futtaim Properties.
Samer El Achkar, CEO of Al Qabdah Building Contracting, added: “It is an honour to partner with Sharjah Holding to deliver the Al Narjis neighbourhood in Al Zahia. We are committed to building it to a high standard of quality, while using the sustainable construction practices that create optimal living environments designed for life-long value.”
Al Zahia, the first gated community in Sharjah, is located between Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road and University City Road.
With an expected completion date of 2022, Al Zahia will occupy one million square metres and house approximately 12,000 residents, Sharjah Holding said in a press announcement.
The development will take place in several stages, of which the Al Narjis neighbourhood is the second. The Al Zahia gated community will contribute AED5.5 billion to the emirate’s economy when fully occupied, the announcement said.
Hawazen Esber, chief executive officer of communities at Majid Al Futtaim Properties, said: “Al Zahia has quickly become one of the most sought after residential communities in Sharjah as it offers high-standard, modern family homes, which embrace traditional values and are set within green, open spaces. The Al Narjis neighbourhood will further enhance Al Zahia’s appeal and deliver more great moments for more families.”
