Recently named as one of the top ten Global Cities of the Future, Sharjah is a thriving centre for business that has one of the most diversified economies in the Middle East. Steeped in history and heritage, the emirate is seeing unrivalled growth in tourist numbers as visitors and their families flock to one of the most welcoming and diverse cities in the Middle East. The only emirate to have borders with all six of its brother emirates, Sharjah’s landscapes range from rocky mountains to dune-filled deserts, and from idyllic beaches to its bustling urban hub.
Ideally located in the heart of the city, Aljada is spread over 2.2 million square metres, with exceptional connectivity to surrounding areas and the other emirates. With a masterplan that draws inspiration from some of Sharjah’s oldest heritage districts, Aljada is designed to provide you with a stress-free yet active lifestyle. A destination where engaging design meets contemporary elegance, Aljada allows you to be all that you can be.
The UAE’s newest and most exciting leisure and entertainment destination, the Central Hub will be the heart of Aljada. Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the beating heart of Aljada is a futuristic complex over 25 football fields in size.
Mixing lush green spaces with a list of attractions to excite everyone from toddlers to grandparents, the Central Hub’s extensive retail and dining portfolio will also bring a host of big-name brands to the region for the first time. Among the Central Hub’s attractions are: an extreme sports center; the largest children’s edutainment centre in the Northern Emirates, featuring a virtual reality zone, science museum and driving school; an 11-screen cinema and a giant adventure golf course.
The Central Hub’s incredible design also includes a large community park, filled with lush trees and plants that are naturally found in the UAE, as well as a signature tower, significant retail and a host of other sports activities. It will also include a public square for large community gatherings, featuring dancing fountains and dining outlets and cafes. With construction already under way, the Central Hub’s amazing facilities will be ready to welcome residents from the first day they move into Aljada.
