Arada to launch entertainment destination Madar in Sharjah


February 11, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

UAE-based developer Arada has announced the opening of its new family-focused entertainment complex, Madar. Located in the heart of Aljada, the 24 million sqft mega-community currently under construction in Sharjah, the first phase of Madar, spanning 600,000 sqft, will be unveiled on February 27.

Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, Madar contains a cluster of zones and attractions all set in a beautifully landscaped area that includes more than 5,000 trees and parking for 800 cars. It is also the first part of Aljada to be completed.

Among the attractions on offer in the inaugural phase of Madar will be a food district featuring 18 different types of cuisines, a children’s play area, a skatepark, an amphitheatre, indoor and outdoor events spaces and the centrepiece of the complex is the Aljada Discovery Centre. Madar will also feature a packed calendar of festivals, events and activities.

“It has been our aim from the start to create communities that inspire and engage their residents and visitors. We are excited to see that vision come to life with the launch of Madar, a new home for entertainment and culture in Sharjah, a place that is already known the world-over for its outstanding contribution to heritage and the arts,” said Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, chairman of Arada. “We look forward to welcoming members of the public to a destination that encourages creativity and adventure, where visitors of all ages can learn, relax and explore, all within a beautifully designed space.”

Planned over three phases, Madar will be over 25 football fields in size (1.9 million square feet) when fully completed and is the focal point of Aljada. The Madar master plan is defined by lush green space and many water features, and is designed to be fully walkable, even in the summer months.

A new leisure and entertainment district for the UAE, Madar also cements Aljada’s role as a transformational project for Sharjah. Aljada is ideally situated on the last major plot of undeveloped land in the heart of Sharjah, and is an all-encompassing district that comprises considerable retail, leisure and entertainment options, in addition to a wide range of residential and commercial offerings.
