Construction & Real Estate

Sharjah 2021 Construction & Real Estate

Sharjah has worked to brand itself as a unique location within the UAE and the wider GCC, which has resulted in an uptick in work for contractors as they try to close the gap in supply and demand for real estate, especially in the residential segment and for other family-friendly infrastructure. Although the Covid-19 pandemic temporarily disrupted the market, mixed-use developments that incorporate residential units, schools and retail outlets – along with leisure activities and green spaces – have been emerging to meet high demand. Unlike in years past, when demand largely came from those seeking more affordable alternatives to neighbouring emirates, much of the interest is coming from individuals and families who are drawn to Sharjah’s laid-back and authentic Arab culture.

This chapter contains interviews with Ahmed Alkhoshaibi, CEO, Arada; and George Khouzami, COO, Al Thuriah Group.
