Arada has unveiled the final details on its Aljada Central Hub mega-development.

The futuristic complex, set to be designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, will span a whopping 1.9 million sq ft (176,500sq m) and include 732,000 sq ft (68,000sq m) of green space.

Other highlights of the family-focused attraction will include retail shops, a 1,500-seat multiplex, a waterplay area, multiple sports facilities, and an "edutainment" building featuring a virtual reality zone.

The entire development, which will have its own microclimate and irrigation system powered by recycled water, will also have a wide range of trees and plants.

According to Johannes Schafelner, project director at Zaha Hadid, the Central Hub will show "how conscious design can work with the environment".

HE Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi, chairman of Arada, said: "Our plan has always been to build extraordinary, engaging and life-changing communities. That is reflected in the bold final design of the Central Hub, which will soon be a new focal point not just for Aljada, but for the whole of Sharjah and the rest of the UAE as well.

HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal, Vice Chairman of Arada, said: "Sustainability is absolutely central to Arada's vision, and that has been reflected in the Central Hub's final design. We are working hard to protect and encourage local native species, as well as making the most of our natural environment. We're also doing this in a way that is cost-efficient and leaves as small an impact on the planet as possible."

Arada expects the entire complex to be completed in 2022.
