Real estate services provider Savills has doubled the size of its Sharjah office to tap into “positive" property trends in the emirate.
While there is a general slowdown in the real estate sector, Savills said now was the right time to invest in the emirate due to a demand spike for real estate services.
The opening of the office comes after Sharjah was added to the Unesco list of global creative cities.
Savills’ expanded office includes a larger open-plan and flexible environment that encourages collaboration and productivity.
The company said it incorporated elements of “innovative design” although it did not specify what they were.
However, the expansion will pave the way for Savills to eliminate the reliance on single-use plastics and reduce paper water almost entirely, it said.
“Over the past 18 months, Savills’ Sharjah has seen our management portfolio grow by over 50% and there continues to be positive demand for our leasing and advisory services,” said Suzanne Eveleigh, head of Sharjah for Savills
“Despite a general slowdown in the Northern Emirate markets, we see significant opportunities and believe this to be a great time to invest in expanding this part of our business. We aim to further enhance client and customer experience with this new expansion.”
