Alef Group’s upcoming lifestyle destination ‘Zero 6’ wins two awards at Arabian Property Awards 2017 – 2018

Ahead of its opening in Q1 of 2018, Sharjah’s first lifestyle destination of its kind, ‘Zero 6’ has won two prestigious awards at the Arabian Property Awards 2017 – 2018, in the ‘Leisure Development’ and ‘Retail Development’ categories. The project is being developed by Alef Group, a pioneering Sharjah-based developer of designed lifestyle experiences.

The Arabian Property Awards is part of the International Property Awards, which recognizes and rewards excellence in property, architecture and interior design within Middle East and Africa and across the globe. The judging panel comprised independent industry experts who assess design, quality, service, innovation, authenticity and sustainability credentials of the submitted projects.

Issa Ataya, Managing Director, Alef Group accepted the awards at a gala ceremony that was held on September 7, 2017 at the JW Marquis Hotel in Dubai.
Inspired by Sharjah’s telephone code, Alef’s winning entry, Zero 6 is designed to resonate with new-age visitors while offering family-friendly entertainment to residents of the emirate and beyond. Zero 6’s sophisticated and contemporary design as well as its wide-range of shopping and dining options, unique entertainment propositions and numerous wellness activities – are all strategically conceived to celebrate Sharjah’s evolving identity through an inspiring lifestyle community experience, where trendsetters will feel instantly at home.

On this occasion, Mr. Issa Ataya said: “Winning in both the categories of a coveted awards program that we entered is a tremendous achievement for our upcoming project, Zero 6. Once open, the venue will be a landmark achievement within the leisure and retail landscape of Sharjah that will draw interest from lifestyle aficionados and trendsetters from across the region. This project is a key part of Alef Group’s robust portfolio that aims to put the spotlight on Sharjah’s investment-friendly retail landscape and demonstrate our commitment to enhancing the emirate’s lifestyle offerings. This win is a testament to our vision of developing designed lifestyle experiences, and marks an important milestone for us after the recent launch of Al Mamsha.”
“Zero 6 has all the ingredients of being a dynamic lifestyle hub that inspires wonderful moments. We have a perfect location with the international airport and the Universities City in close proximity, and have partnered with leading restaurants, retail outlets and entertainment providers that are especially curated for Zero 6’s audience.”

Spanning an area of 15,000 square metres, Zero 6 will feature an eclectic collection of 52 retail and F&B brands; 7-screen Cineplex built by ‘Cinema City’, which will include UAE’s largest IMAX screen; Sharjah’s first Fitness First Platinum club, a ‘Fun City’ catering to kids, in addition to an internationally-renowned supermarket chain and Sharjah’s first branch of Abu Dhabi-based Burjeel Hospital.
