Having recently opened up its real estate market to foreign investors who can now own properties in the emirate for up to 100 years, Sharjah real estate is set to witness an unprecedented boom. The Tilal City project, which was welcomed by investors and marked the beginning of a new era in Sharjah real estate has seen immense progress and demand. Launched in November 2014 as a joint venture between Sharjah Asset Management and Eskan Real Estate Development, the flagship Sharjah property project covers an area of 25 million square feet along Emirates Road. It is the first model community of its kind in the city. In addition, it is also the first development available on a 100-year leasehold basis for all nationalities.
Soon, Tilal Properties will also unveil the Tilal Mall project. This development is expected to add to the retail appeal of the emirate and cater to the shopping needs of residents in Tilal City and neighbouring areas.
More importantly, as a burgeoning real estate destination, Sharjah was least hit by the economic downturn of 2008. Demand, supply and prices of Sharjah properties continue to remain stable and affordable, thereby gaining the confidence of investors and representing a safety valve for the UAE real estate market. Moreover, the market is also being well regulated to guarantee the rights of all the parties involved, including developers and investors. For instance, the Sharjah Real Estate Registration Department, recently announced its plans to launch a new service that allows customers to enter the data of initial contracts for real estate deals via smartphones. This will make the data available in the circuit systems and make it easier for dealers to complete the final procedures when they go to the Department.
Aside from Tilal City, Sharjah real estate is set to welcome a series of new real estate projects, including industrial, commercial and residential ones, such as the Sharjah Expo Hotel, which when launched, is expected to become an architectural and iconic masterpiece and a transformative hotel stay experience for business and leisure travellers. Given its strategic location, the hotel will be ideal for corporate executives visiting the various exhibitions held at Expo Centre Sharjah.
Sharjah Holding is another landmark initiative and the result of a strategic partnership between the Government of Sharjah and Majid Al Futtaim Properties. Matajer, a neighbourhood retail concept anchored by a leading supermarket chain and featuring a range of premium retail, food and beverage brands and Al Zahia, an integrated residential community featuring a range of villas, apartments and commercial units have been launched as part of this initiative with ongoing expansion plans slated for the year.
