A Sustainable City Is Coming To Sharjah

The AED 2 billion fully sustainable project will be built on a 7.2 million sq ft plot of land in Sharjah’s Al Rahmaniya area.

A joint venture between Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) and Diamond Developers, Sharjah Sustainable City (SSC) seeks to create “a working model of future cities” for the emirate and beyond.

It is designed according to the three pillars of sustainability: social, environmental, and economic that’s on track to the first fully sustainable community in Sharjah.

Like Diamond Developers’ established sister project Dubai Sustainable City, SSC is powered by renewable energy produced from rooftop solar panels.

It recycles its water and waste and produces vegetables and greens to enhance food security. Phase 1, comprising 25 per cent of the total residential development of 280 villas, will attract residents with the promise of savings of up to 50 per cent on energy bills, as well as the chance to make the most of the outdoors with 11.8 km of jogging tracks, 1.6 km cycling tracks and 8.4 km of pedestrian sikkas – a contemporary reinterpretation of a traditional Arabic design feature, the hard sand between homes found in the alleyways of Old Dubai.
