17 December 2017

Sharjah, United Arab Emirates: 17 December 2017 – ARADA has announced the launch of Phase 3 of Nasma Residences, the UAE’s developer’s first community, after experiencing strong sales in Phase 2 of the masterplanned project. In addition, ARADA has also confirmed that the world’s largest private education operator, GEMS, will open a school in Nasma Residences. Both announcements come shortly after enabling work began at the fully self-sustained villa and townhouse community located in the heart of New Sharjah.

Phase 3 of Nasma Residences will incorporate an entirely new unit, the Three Bedroom Signature Villa. Other units on sale include two, three and four bedroom Townhouses and Semi-Detached Villas, and four and five bedroom detached Signature Villas.

HE Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, Chairman of ARADA, said: “We’re excited to launch Phase 3 of Nasma Residences, and to have started construction of our first project on schedule. Furthermore, the new GEMS school reinforces our commitment to providing a fully inclusive experience to every homeowner in Nasma Residences. Our vision is that every resident should be able to access best-in-class services, including a high-quality, international education for their children, all within a beautifully designed and landscaped community.”

Dino Varkey, Chief Executive Officer of GEMS Education, said: “We’re delighted to bring the very highest quality education to Nasma Residences, with a new affordable international school.”

Launched in March 2017, Nasma Residences sold out the first of the community’s five phases in less than a month, making it the fastest-selling residential real estate project in Sharjah. The main construction contract for work on Phase 1 of Nasma Residences was awarded to Sharjah-based Intermass Engineering & Contracting LLC. Enabling works began onsite on 1 September this year, and the first phase is on track to be delivered to homeowners by the end of 2018.

Spread over an area of 5 million sq. ft., Nasma Residences has been carefully planned to ensure a balance between living areas and community facilities. Keeping homeowners’ comfort and convenience top of mind, Nasma Residences will be anchored by four community offerings: a 13-acre lushly landscaped park with cycling and jogging tracks and large play areas; a multi-purpose community centre with club house offering sports and recreation facilities; children’s nursery and full-service medical clinic; the GEMS international school; and Nasma Square, a retail mall.

Nasma Residences offers a superior location in the heart of new Sharjah. It is located at the intersection of Emirates Road (E611) and Maliha Road, adjacent to the newly developing Tilal City, Tilal Mall and the new state-of-the-art Sharjah Convention Centre. It is also just 15 minutes from Sharjah International Airport and Sharjah University City. The location is ideal for a convenient and traffic-free commute from Sharjah to Dubai or the Northern Emirates.

With homes ranging in size from 1,500 sq. ft. to 4,400 sq. ft, complemented by generous plots, there is an offering to suit every prospective homeowner. With homes starting from AED 1,045,000, it offers an attractive opportunity for investors who want to buy in a lively new urban destination.
