“We are not looking at the tallest or largest properties, but there are plans to create new projects, urban centres, communities. What we want to achieve at this point of time is that, we want to do the right things – create right communities, regardless of the size,” Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, Chairman of Basma Group and Chairman of ARADA– the new joint venture with Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed’s KBW Investments – told Gulf Property, smiling. However, his smile says a lot about what is in store. When Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed’s business entities join hands with another entity, there is usually more to the deal than meets the eye. For one, his company has just announced a cluster of 800 villas and townhouses in a new self-sustained community – the Dh1.5 billion Nasma Residences, next to Tilal City – a project being developed under his close supervision.

Gulf News features ARADA’s launch

A newly created joint venture — named ARADA — will develop freehold residential communities in Sharjah and thus try and fill a major gap that exists in the emirate’s real estate space. The promoters of the new entity are Saudi Arabia’s Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal Alsaud, founding Chairman of KBW Investments, and the Sharjah’s Basma Group led by Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi.

Arada’s development focus for the time being will be on “accessible” residential options, Prince Khaled said. It will target “those looking to invest properties that offer tremendous end-user value,” he added. “Looking ahead, we will stay committed to playing a pivotal role in supporting the government’s mandate and efforts to promote the sustainable cultural and environmental principles of Sharjah … in both emerging and new locations. “In the immediate period following the launch, we will be targeting well-connected destinations that boast a strategic location and provide ease of access to residents coming in and going out of Sharjah.” The first project in the company’s portfolio is to be revealed shortly. “The current shortage in urban communities in Sharjah is causing a real and burning demand not only from families residing in Sharjah, but also from others who want to relocate from other emirates in search of a value proposition,” Prince Khaled added.

Nasma Residences offers a superior location in the heart of new Sharjah, located at the intersection of Emirates Road Highway #611 and Maliha Road

ARADA, the UAE’s newest developer, has today launched Nasma Residences, the company’s first project in Sharjah focused on aspirational yet accessible living in an urban setting. With an expected completion date for late 2018, residents and investors can now own their homes in a thoughtfully master-planned community of over 800 contemporary residential properties and a host of community facilities in the heart of a vibrant cultural and business hub. ARADA is a partnership enterprise jointly founded by KBW Investments Chairman HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal and Basma Group Chairman HE Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi.

Nasma Residences will offer a best-in-class living experience across a choice of two and three bedroom townhouses, four bedroom semi-detached homes and five bedroom signature villas.

The development will expand over 5,000,000 sq. ft. of land area carefully planned to ensure a balance between living areas and community facilities.

 

Keeping homeowners’ comfort and convenience top of mind, Nasma Residences will be anchored by four community offerings: a 13-acre lushly landscaped park with cycling and jogging tracks and large play areas; a multipurpose community centre with club house offering sports and recreation facilities; a children’s nursery and full-service medical clinic; an international school; and a retail mall offering a large-scale anchor shopping experience for day-to-day and specialty needs and a range of casual dining experiences.

Addressing investors and residents, HE Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, Chairman of ARADA, said: “We are very proud to be launching Nasma Residences just over a month following ARADA’s announcement. This is a clear indication of the reliability and credibility that we conveyed to the market from the outset. The project also translates our aspirations to stay in line with Sharjah leadership’s vision to create urban communities with vast green spaces. Nasma Residences is our value-added proposition to consumers demanding higher living standards combining product quality and affordability. We are confident that the project will be well-received by families and investors who are seeking ergonomically-designed homes in a strategically-located and emerging destination.”

 

Nasma Residences offers a superior location in the heart of new Sharjah.

KBW Investments (KBW) and Basma Group (Basma) today announced the joint formation and launch of ARADA, a partnership enterprise dedicated to the creation of prime residential properties. Headquartered in the United Arab Emirates, ARADA has commenced operations with the focus on ‘creating communities’, aiming to address the ever-expanding mid-market segment. The agreement was inked in Sharjah in early December of last year between HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal, founding Chairman of KBW Investments, and HE Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, Chairman of Basma Group.

 

Conceptualized with the intention of delivering superior properties to the UAE real estate segment, ARADA will pursue the development and timely delivery of projects. The newly-established company will draw on the vast experience of its founding parties and the breadth of their diverse commercial portfolios. Prospective residents and investors in the UAE and across the GCC will be presented with quality ARADA Living experiences and investment opportunities to own ergonomically-designed homes. Building on existing corporate credibility, KBW and Basma have made the ARADA brand hallmark one of reliability, commitment to quality, and end-user value.

ARADA, with a launch focus on the emirate of Sharjah, will build on the government’s vision to position the emirate as a vibrant cultural and business hub. It is led by the highest figures from both organizations whereby HE Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi will serve as ARADA’s Chairman, while HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal will act as the company’s Vice Chairman.

Commenting on the launch, HE Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, said: “We are very proud to be present here today in a show of strong confidence and commitment to further grow the private sector in the UAE and cement the entrepreneurial spirit of this nation. The property sector remains highly attractive especially in the residential segment which is one of the country’s key pillars for the future. We have made important strides towards aligning our goals with the leadership’s vision and supporting its ambitious aspirations in partnership with KBW Investments. Today, ARADA is the result of these joined efforts and we are confident that it will play a pivotal role in closing the gap in the underserved sector of urban communities.”

 

HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal said: “Over the past few years, KBW Investments has been carefully curating a group of companies that work together across sectors, and have amassed the expertise, scale, and capabilities to contribute to Sharjah’s burgeoning real estate segment. Through our discussions with industry experts and investors, we’ve determined the consumer need for aspirational urban concepts that provide a strong value proposition to Sharjah residents or those looking to invest from other emirates and the larger GCC. For families and investors alike, owning a property is a rewarding opportunity and presents a solid investment vehicle to plan for the future. Together with Basma Group, we’ve commenced working on ARADA projects that will address this growing consumer need with full strength and confidence.” Prince Khaled added that an ARADA project announcement would be made in the immediate term.

 

In 2014, the Sharjah government passed a law opening the door for expats of all nationalities to own property in the emirate thus driving the need for more residential projects. During the same year, the Sharjah Urban Planning Council was formed with the mandate to create urban communities that promote the sustainable cultural and environmental principles of Sharjah. ARADA will play a pivotal role in driving Sharjah’s development forward.
