Just like the residential property in Dubai, the commercial property is also rising and they are planning to fulfill the requirements and demands of every person staying there. Many well known commercial properties are under construction in Dubai. Business Bay in Dubai is one such business district which is under construction and will soon turn into a global business hub. Business bay is a central business district. It is a kind of a new city which is being developed within the city of Dubai. This business district is located in Dubai’s downtown. It is not only a commercial but a residential district as well and is comparable to Ginza which is in Tokyo and Manhattan in New York. Business bay scores 100 percent on location as it is very closely located to the International Financial center in Dubai and is even close to Dubai International Airport. gb1 This project covers the large area of around 64 million square feet and it includes both office and residential units. Moreover, this is an ideal business place for people staying in Burj Dubai, Deira and other adjacent areas. It marks a convenient place even for those who are planning to shift their businesses near to it or in business bay itself. This business hub provides the best of business as well as residential facilities along with stunning views and sheer size and capacity for corporate head offices. This mixed-use development will soon be completely functional and operational and it is expected to get completed by the year 2010.

Business bay is a very big project that consists of numerous skyscraper buildings.

The Dubai property market is witnessing a phenomenal growth and innovative projects which have been never seen before. The complete project is created by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and is still under construction. This project once fully constructed will be very beneficial to the people in Dubai and those coming from overseas for business reasons. Although, there are many commercial properties there in nearby locations such as Dubai Financial center, Dubai media city however, they all have some limitations in it as they are just open for very few specific business activities. On the contrary business bay is likely to be the hub for every industry which is operational. If we talk about the current pricing of the business bay, it is said that the prices of this central business district will cross Dh. 5000 per square foot. This report has been predicted by an industry expert. Moreover, this is a free trade zone that provides a better infrastructure and a better environment for corporate to function. Some of the towers and buildings inside Business bay are being developed by Dubai properties. Apart from this the majority of buildings are being constructed by a number of independent and local developers. The most well known and importantly constructed buildings at the bay are: gb2 • Burj Al Najoom • Chrchill Tower • Executive Tower D, E, J and M • Bayswater • One Business Bay • Lotus • XL Tower As far as the towers in business bay are concerned, there are a total of 46 towers including: The Bay Gate, The Forum, XL Tower, Al Manara, Crystal Tower, Burj Al Alam, The Prism, Iris Bay, Sky Tower 1, The Exchange, One Business bay and there are many more. The design and other hi tech modern amenities will take these towers a long way in terms of popularity. It is just a new extension of the famous Dubai creek that extends from Ras Al Khor to Sheikh Zayed road. Let’s talk about few important constructions in detail: Churchill Tower: This is a complex consisting of two towers and is located within the business bay. Out of the two towers, a tower named Churchill residency is the taller and as the name suggests it is a residential tower consisting of 59 floors. Other tower named Churchill executive is an office tower. This tower has 43 floors in it. The construction of these towers got started in 2006 and is expected to be completed in 2010. Moreover, the Churchill tower is being developed by Emirates national Investment. Executive Towers: There are 12 towers under Executive towers which are currently getting constructed in Business bay. Out of these 12 towers, 10 towers are residential ones, 1 is a hotel tower and the remaining 1 is a commercial tower. The commercial tower is known as the Aspect tower and the Executive hotel tower is the hotel one. These two are the first buildings which got completed and are just located near the entrance of business bay. All these towers are connected with each other with the help of a three-storey podium and it also connects the closely located Vision Tower. This is a three level podium and on the first two levels they have a Bay Avenue shopping mall and water front terraces. gb4 So, here is the description of few very famous towers in Business Bay however; most of them are under construction at this point in time. Similarly, there is another well known tower known as the XL Tower which is expected to get completed in the year 2008. Thus business bay will set up new and unique standards for the next business generation not only for Dubai but for even for the rest of the world.

Another Spectacular Property – Dubai Waterfront

Dubai is one of the seven emirates of the United Arab Emirates which is growing steadily in terms of real estate developments. This city is centrally located in the Middle East which makes it a convenient place for business meetings and leisure. Today, Dubai has become a dream destination of all property investors and developers and this sudden real estate boom will continue in future with more developers entering the UAE market. This surge in property market can be due to many reasons; however, the first one is that there is no legal fee and stamp duty involved in property transactions. Dubai enjoys a tax free environment and a tax free lifestyle and no taxation is involved in property dealings here. This makes the whole procedure of selling or buying real estate Dubai, easier and the paperwork is minimal. In addition to this, many multinational companies are showing a lot of interest in Dubai and they are moving and setting up their divisions here, due to which there is an upcoming demand of residential and commercial properties. Apart from this, Dubai allows freehold property ownership to foreigners, which allows them to own, rent out and sell their properties in Dubai. There are some real estate companies those who are offering habitation visas especially to those people who purchase properties from them. Thus, the real estate sector in Dubai is witnessing massive activity in the form of investments from various private and public organizations.

One of the many reasons for Dubai getting famous for real estate is because of its amazing architectural designs and spectacular growth in great property developments. This is considered today, as a billion dollar investment.

Dubai Properties: If we talk about real estate Dubai, it is recognized as one of the fastest growing cities in the world in terms of property and real estate developments. However, you will find all kinds of properties here, that suits everybody’s requirements and of course budget. As far as properties in Dubai are concerned, they come in different forms of luxury apartments, villas, offices, hotels and various other commercial property developments. So, if you are really interested in buying some property there, you have plenty of selections. Some of the most well known Dubai properties include: Palm Islands, Dubai Marina, Dubai Waterfront, Jumeirah lake Towers, Business Bay and many more. 

Now let’s talk about a very famous and luxurious property in Dubai, known as Dubai Waterfront.

Dubai Waterfront: This Dubai property needs very little introduction as it’s another spectacular project from Nakheel properties. This property development is expected to become the world’s largest man made development. This billion dollar project is an accumulation of many canals and artificial islands. And it occupies the remaining Persian Gulf coastline of Dubai. Dubai Waterfront is being developed by Nakheel, who is one of the largest privately held real estate developer. The portfolio of this well known property developer includes some other high value projects such as Palm Islands, The Gardens, Jumeirah lake towers, Discovery Gardens, Lost City, Jumeirah Islands, Jumeirah Village and the list is endless. However, if we talk about Dubai Waterfront, this property encompasses an area of about 1.4 billion square feet of water and land developments. Moreover, this project is closely located to Dubai World Central International Airport. Unlike other properties, this property construction is much more than a simple addition to Dubai’s property market. It is being situated on the western shoreline of Dubai and the location comprises of unparalleled transportation links and facilities. Moreover, the place has a number of major tourist attractions and other leisure facilities so that people get more interested in buying Dubai waterfront properties. It also features extensive range of luxurious villas and high end accommodation.

This property project is being undertaken on a massive scale and thus it is set to create home for residential and commercial freehold properties. This project also suffice Dubai trade, as it will provide a harbor for boats and is a combination of various other sub developments including hotels, resorts, office and residential properties. If we talk about residential properties here, then this project is expected to be called home for about 1.5 million people. This is going to be the premier luxury housing region for both apartments and villas. Once the project is completed, it will extend Dubai’s coastline by 12 times as its current standing. Moreover, the focal point of the complete development of this project is the shoreline area Madinat Al Arab. As far as the architectural design of this property is concerned, it’s unique and it’s no doubt about the fact that this project will soon become one of the hotspot destinations in the world. This project presents Zero Five Zero freehold apartments. These apartments include one, two, three and four luxurious waterfront bedroom apartments and are located at one of the most strategically advantageous locations in the UAE.

Above all, this property is so well designed, that it minimizes the ecological impact which can be seen in every minute detail of the property construction design. Resource efficiency and economic prosperity are the basic foundations on which this Waterfront property has been designed. There are specially designed utility centers that are dedicated to meet water and energy conservation which is very essential.

Summary: If today, we will look at the property then you will notice that it is still under construction with many cranes and other heavy machinery, but once the project is completed it will turn into a self contained and self sufficient community that is probably larger than Manhattan and will be capable of housing about 1 million people.

Building Green Dubai

•November 11, 2008 • Leave a Comment


Ten to twelve years ago who would have wondered that in such a short span of time Dubai could become a world class city in the middle of the desert. But the fact of the matter is that Dubai is the crown of the desert today. Not only has it become a world class city but is easily the greenest desert city in the world. The real estate sector of Dubai deserves credit for the massive amount of green design developers have implemented in their projects in the desert city.


The property Dubai market are not only equipped with the latest technology and luxurious lifestyle but almost every building has a patch of lush green grass or a garden for that matter to give it a serene and peaceful surrounding. Almost all buildings have been created with sustainable design be it a residential property or a commercial one. Environment friendly materials have been used to build the major constructions and the Land Department and the Real Estate Regulatory Authority is making sure that the best eco friendly practices are adhered to.


His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum who is the vice president and prime minister of the UAE and the ruler of Dubai has passed a new resolution for the setting up green building specifications for the desert city. According to it the owners of all the residential and commercial towers and properties will have to fulfil the international environment friendly conditions. The law became effective in the January of this year and is definitely a major step towards a greener and better Dubai. This resolution will help in converting Dubai into a healthy city which will attract much more foreign investment and off course residents from all over the world. Dubai has set the benchmark in real estate developments and it is about time it did the same for environment friendly projects. The city is set to become pollution free and will further boost the image of the city as a great destination to have your future house. Mohammed Abdullah Al Gergawi, chairman of The Executive Office believes “The resolution will boost Dubai’s continuous efforts to promote global endeavours to face environmental challenges”.


On the implementation of this clause is, Dubai became the first city in the Middle East to take up green building specifications. The city is certainly creating a path for others to follow. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed has always been very keenly interested in being part of the global environmental challenges that the world is facing. The Dubai Strategic Plan of 2015 passed by him aims at creating a city which not only is healthy but also the best in the world to live in. This certainly calls for the so called beautification of the city through green design. Green design has not only created environment friendly living conditions but also has called for a massive cut in electricity and water bills through innovative use of the same and in some cases even recycling the wasted energy for property Dubai. All these tactics will finally help in reducing the operational costs of the buildings and hence greatly enhance the capacity of developers to create efficient houses in the long run.


A great example of Green Design being implemented on ground is in the Dubai World Central which is set to become a city within the city itself. It provides for global standards for a completely eco friendly urban design style. It covers an area of nearly 140 sq. km. built around the biggest airport of the world and will bring together the best practices from all over the globe in terms of environmental impact, social cohesion and spectacular architecture. The financial and commercial hub of Dubai World Central, Commercial City will have about 850 towers and will be catering to offices for more than 130000 people all set in green and healthy surroundings.


The idea behind building a green city is to create a self sustainable environment with dynamic communities of people from all over the world that will resist the impact of the global warming and climate change that is threatening the world. Dubai is all set to become the first global urban village with self sustaining capacities. But all this will only be possible if more and more environment friendly measures are taken and the government keeps up its active participation in the cause of nature. Many famous people have endorsed green design and are actively working towards creating such projects. One of the most famous Hollywood celebrities Brad Pitt is all set to design his very own eco friendly hotel in Dubai. Pitt who has a keen interest in architecture will put his knowledge to use and create one of the best resorts in the desert city.


Dubai’s fast growing real estate sector hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down even when there are signals of a global recession. In such a scenario it becomes very important that the market stays competitive with other thriving markets and has the upper hand when everybody cries foul upon the mere mention of processes that could harm the environment. Thus a greener and healthier Dubai is the need of the hour.
