Sharjah, United Arab Emirates: Sharjah Holding PJSC, a strategic partnership between Majid Al Futtaim - Properties and Sharjah Asset Management, today launched the final release of homes in the Al Lilac neighbourhood in Al Zahia, Sharjah’s premier lifestyle destination. Launched in 2017, Al Lilac, the third neighbourhood in Al Zahia, has been developed to suit current and future demand through well-designed spaces that meet the daily life requirements of a growing family.
The first and second releases of Al Lilac included a variety of three-bedroom townhouses, four and five-bedroom villas and three-bedroom courtyard villas, while the latest launch will see the release of 108 additional homes comprising new three-bedroom townhouses and four-bedroom semi-detached villas. The new three-bedroom townhouse is the ideal option for growing families offering beautifully designed, open plan living spaces while the four-bedroom semi-detached villa offers an unparalleled sense of space and privacy, creating a stunning home with interior finishes and materials that reflect a new level of luxury.
Commenting on the launch, Shadi Al Azzeh, Development Director, Al Zahia at Majid Al Futtaim - Communities, said, “To date, Al Zahia has welcomed over 250 families to its first neighbourhood, Al Jouri. In 2018, the community will continue on its journey of growth with the handover of 566 homes in the Al Narjis neighbourhood, and the Garden Apartments. These key milestones reflect our unwavering commitment to develop a thriving destination in the heart of modern Sharjah that echoes Al Zahia’s vision of creating a community that inspires people to celebrate life and share great moments together every day.”
As reported by real estate consultancy Cluttons, Sharjah's villa market recorded an increase of 1.7 per cent, taking the rate of growth to 0.4 per cent during the last quarter of 2017. Cluttons mentioned that Al Zahia has been a runaway success, due to its integrated mixed-use lifestyle offerings.

Through the development of sustainable and iconic living environments such as Al Zahia, we endeavour to drive socio-economic growth in Sharjah by inspiring the next generation of communities,” commented Walid Al Hashimi, Chief Executive Officer, Sharjah Holding.
