In a strategic move accentuating affordability paired with luxury, Shurooq unveiled the prices and other details regarding their ‘Ajwan’, nestled in the serene setting of Khorfakkan. The project debuts with two iconic buildings: ‘Saahil’ and ‘Al Joon’, housing 79 exquisite units, with prices starting from AED 1.8 Million. These competitive prices mark the entry into a world-class living experience offering a spectrum of residential options, from 2-bedroom units to 4-bedroom duplexes, with the project earmarked to be completed in Q4 2026.

Representing Shurooq’s commitment to enhancing Khorfakkan’s allure and investment potential, ‘Ajwan’ spans an impressive 65,269 square metres, a visionary residential project that will comprise six buildings containing 185 apartments, a five star hotel managed by Marriott Autograph Collection,  two adult swimming pools, a kids pool, a picturesque waterfront, various amenities, as well as a wide range of dining and retail spaces. Making it even more unique, the development will also feature an incredible 15,000 square-metre water park, complete with an artificial wave pool, thrilling slides, and meandering water passages, adding to the coastal charm of Khorfakkan.

‘Aysha Residence’ – Waterfront elegance on Maryam Island
In its ongoing pursuit of delivering luxurious living experiences, Shurooq highlighted their ‘Aysha Residence’ development on Maryam Island. The project comprises 147 apartments, ranging from studios to three-bedroom units. With construction already underway, this high-end project offers a compelling investment prospect that includes diverse amenities, including a gym, playground, and pools catering to both children and adults, ensuring a versatile investment and a spectacular living environment for residents.

Strategically located with picturesque views of the Al Khan Lagoon, properties on Maryam Island not only provide a serene backdrop but also grant convenient access to the Maryam waterfront promenade. This prime location boasts an array of cafes and dining options, fitness clubs, swimming pools, as well as an indoor garden, adding an extra layer of convenience and enjoyment for residents. Upon completion, the island will feature 20 impressive residential buildings comprising over 3,500 units, establishing an inclusive community and offering a plethora of investment opportunities.

The development also treats 100% of wastewater for irrigation, maximises recycling, and features vertical farms producing 90,000 kgs of chemical-free greens. With 80 EV charging stations, it also promotes green mobility. With endless benefits to residents, the project prioritises health, offering sports facilities, gyms, clinics, retail, food outlets, as well as a nursery. As an added incentive, investors enjoy zero service charges for the first five years, and the city, open to all nationalities, provides an attractive payment plan, embodying a commitment to sustainability and inclusivity.

Turning Sharjah’s vision into reality
During a panel discussion on the first day of the exhibition,  H.E. Ahmed Obaid Al Qaseer, CEO of Shurooq, expanded on the important role real estate and investment plays in shaping Sharjah’s economic and developmental landscape. He also revealed that the real estate sector in Sharjah saw an incredible 19.2% increase in trading volume in the first half of 2023, contributing significantly to the national economy.
