Sharjah Oasis Real Estate Co. LLC, developer of Sharjah Waterfront City – the largest mixed-use master-planned waterfront community in the emirate of Sharjah, announced the launch of the construction activities of Phase I of the Dh25 billion mixed-use master-planned township project.
The company has also announced the appointment of Tech Group – a major contracting company – to construct and deliver 321 villas on the Sun Island, the first phase of the Sharjah Waterfront City.
Tech Group has put the project on a fast-track construction, deploying pre-cast offsite construction technology that offers a faster and cost-effective construction solution.
“The appointment of Tech Group and deploying the pre-cast offsite construction process will ensure a faster delivery of the high-quality finishing and lower construction cost that we will be able to pass it on the clients,” H.E. Sheikh Abdullah Al Shakrah, Chairman of Sharjah Oasis Real Estate Co. LLC.
This demonstrates our strong commitment to the economy of the UAE and Sharjah in developing economies and adding value to the overall economy.”
Further elaborating on the quality of the villa design, environment and construction, Mr Al Shakrah said: "Our strategy is to develop sustainable development projects in Sharjah. The decision comes after conducting a thorough study of the market and identifying the needs of all segments of society. The Sharjah Waterfront City, which is a unique mixed-use waterfront city of its kind in the emirate, is considered today by the economic, commercial and tourism dimension of these projects.
“Sun Island’s 321 villas offer a freedom to the residents – there’s more life outdoor than indoor.”
So far, 20 per cent of the works have already been accomplished by Sharjah Oasis Real Estate Co. LLC, even before the commercial launch of the project. These include the construction of the canals, physical infrastructure, power infrastructure, internal roadways, bridges, breakwater barriers for water circulation, installation of geo-textiles for environmental protection, detail design and piling and shoring works of the villas.
The villas on Sun Island have been designed as intelligent buildings keeping in mind the future lifestyle – smart living and artificial intelligence and robotics as well – where a lot of things will be controlled through smart devices.
Tech Group has already mobilised resources and building the show villas ahead of the commercial launch of the Phase I.
Shiraz Hasan, Group CEO of Tech Group, said, “Tech Group is happy to partner with Sharjah Oasis Real Estate Co. in delivering the projects on Sun Island. We have already mobilised our resources and started building the villas.
“As part of our commitment to offer the best quality and timely delivery, Tech Group is utilising the best construction technology using pre-cast offsite method to deliver the smart villas on time, on budget and with the best quality.
“The villas have been designed keeping the end-user comfort in mind and we are mindful of our obligations to deliver the best for the most beautiful destination in the Middle East. Sharjah Waterfront City is designed to be the most beautiful place to live, work and enjoy and we will make sure that the residents of the villas get that feeling.”
