Emaar Hospitality, the hospitality arm of Emaar Properties (DFM: EMAAR), and Arada, the UAE’s award-winning developer, have announced the launch of Sharjah’s first branded serviced apartments building and a significant new offering at one of the UAE’s fastest-growing communities.

Owned and developed by Arada, and operated by Vida Hotels and Resorts, the third Vida Residences Aljada building contains one, two, three-bedroom branded serviced apartments and a stunning penthouse, which will add to Vida’s already impressive portfolio, including Vida Emirates Hills, Vida Downtown, Manzil Downtown, and the recently opened beach resort, Vida Umm Al Quwain.

Vida Residences 3 Aljada consists of 149 high-end smart homes, all of which are fully furnished and decorated by Vida, a brand renowned for its sleek, contemporary aesthetics, minimalist luxury and immaculate finishes. Buyers may choose to live in or rent out their properties themselves, or lease back the apartment to the hotel rental pool and gain an enhanced return on their investment.

Set in the heart of Aljada, Arada’s AED24 billion master community that is swiftly becoming Sharjah’s largest lifestyle destination, Vida Residences Aljada is superbly located along a lush green tree-lined boulevard that contains multiple shopping and dining experiences. The building is located next to the Vida Aljada hotel, and is part of Naseej District, a new creative neighbourhood for Sharjah that also contains a world-class museum and makers’ district.

Construction on Vida Residences Aljada and the adjacent Vida Aljada hotel will commence in the second quarter of 2022 and is set to be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2023.

HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal, Vice Chairman of Arada, said: “The introduction of this impressive building is yet another step in our partnership with Emaar Hospitality Group and follows on from the successful launch of two branded residences buildings over the course of the last year. We are delighted to be able to provide our buyers with the service quality, finishing and amenities for which the Vida brand is well known.”

An Emaar spokesperson said: “The opening of Vida Residences 3 Aljada is testament to Emaar’s commitment to continuously placing the UAE in the frontline of innovative and luxurious solutions for residents. Emaar Hospitality’s Group’s Strategy will ensure buyers are presented with residential units designed to reflect Vida’s iconic brand elements in the heart of Sharjah’s fastest-growing community.”

Vida Residences 3 Aljada takes focus on bold, modern social spaces in line with its sister properties in Dubai and the Vida Hotels and Resorts brand. The residences are typified by the entrance lobby, a cosy and comfortable environment that encourages creativity and connection online and offline. Apartments are fitted with smart home features, a standard in all Vida Residences, alongside warm and simple designs with immaculate finishes.

Residents will have exclusive access to a breath-taking rooftop infinity swimming pool and state-of-the-art gym, while little residents will be able to enjoy a dedicated family pool and kid’s play area.

At 24 million square foot in size, Aljada is set to be Sharjah’s largest ever mixed-use destination and a new leisure and entertainment hub for the emirate. Alongside extensive residential districts, Aljada also hosts a range of leisure amenities including beautifully landscaped parks, hotels, schools and a premium business district.

In total, 1,200 homes have now been completed at Aljada, as well as its family-friendly entertainment destination, Madar at Aljada, which has already welcomed well over two million visitors. Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, this new family entertainment destination has a wealth of attractions, all set in a beautifully landscaped green space.
