Kaya will feature 421 nature-inspired upscale homes.

Leading UAE developer Arada has launched Kaya, the second residential phase of its forested lifestyle mega community Masaar (path in Arabic), located in the Al Suyoh district of Sharjah.

A nature-inspired collection of upscale homes, Kaya will boast 421 townhouses and villas. Construction work at Kaya will begin in the second half of 2022 and the first homes will be ready by the end of 2023.

Arada says the launch of Kaya has been brought forward following strong demand for homes in the first phase of its AED8-billion Masaar megaproject, which comprise Sendian villas.

Designed to encourage active and healthy living in harmony with nature, Masaar was launched in January this year, and offers 4,000 villas in eight gated residential districts, all clustered around a ‘green spine’ containing a host of outdoor and sporting facilities and boasting 50,000 trees.

From two-bedroom townhouses to five-bedroom luxury villas, homes at Kaya are designed in traditional Indian Vastu Shastra principles, which aim to integrate architecture with nature. 

New home types to be introduced in Kaya will bring a new living experience for residents. These include a luxury five-bedroom Kaya Forest Signature Villa set on three floors, with a lift and swimming pool added as standard.  In addition, all properties overlooking Masaar’s green spine will include rooftop terraces from which residents will be able to enjoy views of the forested heart of the community.

Meanwhile, Arada has awarded the first contract for Phase Two of its family entertainment district Madar, located within its Aljada megaproject in Sharjah. The second phase of Madar will contain a fully stocked health and fitness club, a trampoline park, an extension to the existing skatepark, more parking and a further 460,000 sq ft of parkland.

 The contract was awarded to Dubai-based architect Proscape for landscaping and other works over a four-month period.
