Business Bay is an ambitious 64 Million Square foot freehold district that is currently under development directly next to Downtown Dubai. The development is expected to have 240 buildings that vary between Office & Residential Towers.
Running through the heart of Business Bay is the Dubai Creek that was opened in the final quarter of 2017. The creek is planned to be a primary attraction in Business Bay, offering the community beautiful waterfront views and a promenade that will have plenty of dining and recreational options.
The best features of Business Bay are:
- Central location within Dubai.
- Easy access to key roads such as Al Khail Road and Sheikh Zayed Road.
- A mix of office and residential towers in close proximity.
- The Dubai Creek
The Business Bay development is one of the most exciting in Dubai and has excellent potential for the future, it is important to note though that the area still needs time to develop as there are still many plots that are under construction or vacant.
