Sharjah Sustainable City achieves significant milestones of 2022


Sharjah Sustainable City celebrates year of milestones toward sustainable living.

The Sharjah Sustainable City — the first sustainable master-planned community developed by the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) in partnership with Diamond Developers – has announced that the year 2022 was a year of milestones following an overwhelming response to the city’s movement toward a sustainable way of life.

Over the past year, the city’s first two phases, including 604 spacious and modern villas, have been entirely sold out, and it also launched the third phase comprising 324 villas. What’s more, the phase 1 handover has been completed, with handovers of phase 2 and phase 3 expected to take place in 2023 and 2024, respectively.

 One of the city’s most significant milestones of 2022 was the handover of the first villas to homeowners, marking the city’s transition from a real estate project into an active community. Over 110 families have moved in and started enjoying their new sustainable homes and the many benefits they offer – both environmental and economical.

In his message, Yousif Ahmed Al-Mutawa, Chief Executive Officer of Sharjah Sustainable City, said: “As we look toward the new year, it gives me immense pleasure to see the enormous progress we have made at Sharjah Sustainable City – bringing us ever closer to becoming the first eco-friendly city in the heart of Sharjah. We have achieved a great deal over the past 12 months, and this would not have been possible without the support of our partners, our staff members, our workers, and of course, our home buyers. I thank each of them for supporting us in our journey toward realising a sustainable world where we can all live in harmony with nature and ensure a bright future for the generations to come. “ Extended over an area of 7.2 million square feet in Sharjah’s Al Rahmaniya Area, Sharjah Sustainable City is a leading eco-friendly residential community, promoting a lifestyle that is compatible with the future. With a total of 1,250 sustainable villas, the city is divided into blocks of three-, four- and five-bedroom properties ranging between 2,035 square feet and 3,818 square feet in a built-up area.

The development is in line with national efforts related to the food-energy-water nexus as it provides practical solutions related to food security, water and energy management, as well as natural resources conservation. The city is equipped with renewable energy produced from rooftop solar panels and built with sustainable materials and passive designs that reduce utility bills and operational costs. As a result, residents can save up to 50% on water and electricity bills. On top of that, the city offers zero service fees for the first five years, as well as complimentary energy-efficient kitchen appliances and smart home features.

Sharjah Sustainable City also offers a host of other key amenities such as parks, gyms, a swimming pool, a shopping center, walking/cycling paths and green mobility.
