Nujoom Islands Master Plan

沙迦 nujoom群岛开发规划

Location: Sharjah, UAE

Service: Master Plan




The Nujoom (or Stars) islands are on a 3 sq. km site near the border with Um al Quwain. This development provides a luxury resort and residential area primarily for Gulf Arabs including first, second and holiday homes. It also includes a marina, hotels and resorts, shopping centres, offices and community facilities. A number of channels were dredged so as to create a water frontage to each housing plot. To facilitate this, the islands are relatively thin and long, with roads along the centre of each island accessing plots on both sides. The waterway channels are curved to achieve mobility for self-cleansing flows, which was modelled by Halcrow’s specialist engineers.
