Developer Arada has announced plans to create one of the UAE’s smartest cities at Aljada, the urban mega project located in the heart of Sharjah.

Among the innovations to be introduced at the 24 million square foot development are a sustainability lane for electric vehicles, smart parking, smart solar-powered lighting and ‘circular’ offices. The aim of these initiatives will be to provide residents, workers and visitors to the destination with technology that adds value, improves quality of life, saves money and also supports the environment, Arada said in a statement.
