UAE to get new family entertainment destination
Arada, a property development company based in Sharjah, has announced that the first phase of Madar, a family-focused entertainment complex, will be officially launched on February 27.
Madar is located in the heart of Aljada, a 24m square foot mega-community currently under construction in Sharjah.
The launch of the project's first phase, which is spread over a 600,000sq. ft area, will give the public an opportunity to see what life in the destination will be like when finished.
Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, Madar contains a cluster of zones and attractions all set in a carefully landscaped area that includes more than 5,000 trees and 800 car spaces.
Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, chairman of Arada, said, "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."
Planned over three phases, Madar will span over 25 football fields in size (1.9 million sq. f) when fully completed, and will serve as Ajada's focal point.
Madar will boast lush green spaces, water features, and designed to be fully walkable, even in the summer months.
