Arada Central Business District has the capacity to accommodate 20,000 workers.
Arada has announced the launch of Arada Central Business District (CBD), a new commercial centre for Sharjah, which will be located at the heart of Aljada community.
Spread over 4.3 million square feet of prime leasable space located in 40 smart office blocks, Arada CBD has the capacity to accommodate 20,000 workers, fulfilling the substantial demand for a contemporary business district in Sharjah and catering to the needs of the future workplace for companies across the UAE and beyond.
Sheikh Sultan Bin Ahmed Bin Sultan Al Qasimi, Chairman of Arada, said, “Arada CBD is aligned with Sharjah’s vision to position itself as a leading business hub, attracting companies of all sizes and talents from across the UAE and beyond. The launch of Arada CBD fulfils our promise to provide a transformational urban experience where residents can work, live and play.” Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal, Vice Chairman of Arada, said, “Arada CBD takes the best features from the most prominent business parks from around the world and combines them in a perfectly designed location that is specifically geared to support the workforce of tomorrow.”
The region’s first business park to be conceptualised after the pandemic, Arada CBD is defined by contemporary urban architecture that has been designed to inspire staff and enhance their productivity. Flexible and wide, open floor plans enhance collaboration and benefit from floor-to-ceiling windows allowing more natural light, while each office also benefits from smart technology that is part of Aljada’s overall smart city programme, which will use next-generation solutions that are linked to everything from waste and traffic management to the circular economy and smart lighting solutions.
Ahmed Alkhoshaibi, Group CEO of Arada, said, “We are confident Arada CBD will unlock growth opportunities for companies in Sharjah and will encourage corporates and SMEs to expand and relocate to the Emirate, consequently redefining the business scene in the Emirate and enhancing its position on the regional investment map.
