Sharjah Holding launches third neighbourhood at Al Zahia

Sharjah Holding has launched the third neighbourhood at its Al Zahia community in the emirate.

The company, a joint venture between Majid Al Futtaim Properties and the government of Sharjah, said that the Al Lilac neighbourhood will consist of 120 homes – town houses, three-bed courtyard villas and larger four- and five-bed villas.

Al Zahia is a gated community aimed mainly at middle-class homeowners. Al Lilac follows on from the launch of Al Jouri, which already has 50 units completed and 200 more in the handover process. The second neighbourhood, Al Najris, is 85 per cent sold and is under construction.

In total, about 2,270 homes are planned for Al Zahia in seven neighbourhoods. The development is also to house six themed parks, leisure facilities and a super-regional mall. It is due for completion by 2022.

Walid Al Hashimi, the chief executive of Sharjah Holding, said: “Al Zahia’s continued growth is a testament to Sharjah Holding’s promise to deliver quality homes while building a brand that has become synonymous with family living in Sharjah.”
