Arada has unveiled the final master plan of the Central Hub, the focal point of its ground-breaking Sharjah mega development, Aljada. Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the Central Hub is a bold new leisure and entertainment destination for the UAE and also cements Aljada’s role as a transformational project for Sharjah. Over 25 football fields in size (1.9 million square feet) – or slightly larger than London’s Green Park – the Central Hub is defined by its lush green space and many water features and is designed to be fully walkable, even during the summer months. In total, there will be 732,000 square feet of green space in the Central Hub, including a large landscaped community park that covers a quarter of the complex, which will be home to thousands of specially selected trees and plants.
The Aljada Central Hub model presented the design by Zaha Hadid Architects put forward in a global competition in March 2018
