The UAE market is famed for being a highly lucrative destination for investors, as well as one of the liveliest thrill-filled entertainment hotspots on the planet. Therefore Al Shaab Village will be the intersection of the most adventurous tourists patronizing the most unique retailers and entertainers.
The enormous ambition of the project is mirrored in its staggering cost of over AED 150 million. This embodies the world-class quality standards and the sheer magnitude of the facilities. This is also an unparalleled opportunity to develop massive infrastructure to support this endeavor, thereby upgrading the infrastructural capabilities of the emirate and the country at large.
Abdulla Al Dah, CEO of Al Zajil Fair Management, expressed fervent optimism about the project: “It is an indescribable pleasure to see our dreams taking shape as a towering beacon of irresistible entertainment and shopping boutiques of the highest prestige. At Al Zajil Fair Management, our aspiration is to drastically alter the tourism landscape of Sharjah. We believe that Sharjah is a precious gemstone that can be polished even further to let its full potential sparkle.”
Delving deeper into the state of affairs at the new development, he revealed: “Our facilities have already been 100% booked by investors. This testifies to the immense popularity and importance of the project to Sharjah’s business fraternity.”
The new destination will attract a diverse clientele from all walks of life – especially the young and the young at heart, who are hungry for a new experience and who love to live on the edge of the latest entertainment and classiest brands. Therefore the Sharjah government is promoting the destination as a family tourist attraction that integrates world-class infrastructure. All this is also geared to lure more investors.
The project covers a colossal area of over 13,000 square meters, on land owned by Al Shaab Club in central Sharjah. Among the countless amenities are numerous top-notch restaurants and cafes. It offers a plethora of leisure and retail amenities such as fun fairs, billiard halls and gaming centers. It also boasts a health center equipped with state-of-the-art sporting equipment. Its exhibition hall accommodates over 240 participants, while its massive ice rink sprawls across 530 square meters.
However, the project is not only focused on the commercial aspects, as it also upholds cultural values in order to be a positive influence for the young generation. This underpins Sharjah’s reputation as the cultural nerve center of the nation and indeed the region.
From a cultural and educational perspective, Al Shaab Village will host high profile cultural displays, scientific research and national heritage exhibitions. All this makes it the ideal all-in-one resource for students, experts and tourists alike, which boosts Sharjah’s regional attractiveness, prestige and cultural superiority.
