Sharjah: The Sharjah Sustainable City, in partnership with Diamond Developers, has announced that the year 2022 was marked as a year of milestones following an overwhelming response to the city’s movement toward a sustainable way of life.
Sharjah Sustainable City is the first sustainable master-planned community developed by the Sharjah Investment and Development Authority. 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.
“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,” the CEO added.
Sharjah Sustainable City, located in Sharjah’s Al Rahmaniya Area, is a leading eco-friendly residential community, encouraging a lifestyle that is compatible with the future. With a total of 1,250 sustainable villas, the city is divided into blocks of three-bedroom, four-bedroom, and five-bedroom properties ranging between 2,035 square feet and 3,818 square feet in a built-up area.
Over the past year, the city’s first two phases, including 604 spacious and modern villas, have been entirely sold out, and it further launched the third phase, with 324 villas. The phase 1 handover has been completed, with handovers of phases 2 and 3 expected to take place in 2023 and 2024, respectively.
The development is in accordance 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 resource conservation.
The city contributes to several United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), particularly SDG6, aimed at access to water and sanitation for all, and SDG7, which, among other things, calls for ensuring universal access to affordable, reliable, and modern energy services as well as substantially increasing the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix.
