Features of the area

Dubai is a young city. Its center, Downtown Dubai, is continuously developing, and many parts of it are still under construction.

The area is home to many attractions and world-famous buildings, including the Burj Khalifa, the world-famous Dubai Mall, and the Dancing Fountains. Several interesting projects deserve attention, including residential complexes. Luxury villas in Downtown Dubai are famous for high quality, exclusive interiors, and stunning views of the city.

Although Downtown Dubai is the smallest district in the city and covers an area of only 2.5 square kilometers, it is the largest construction project in the emirate. The project was implemented by Emaar Properties, to develop the city. This area is now a hub of ambitious projects that bring together talented minds, entrepreneurs, and investors, from around the world.

With regards to the real estate market, Downtown is a skyscraper area. Real estate in Downtown Dubai includes studios, apartments, and penthouses, offering a unique panoramic view of the city and its attractions. There is also a limited offer of villas and townhouses located on the top floors of high-rise buildings.

The main advantage of housing in Downtown Dubai is its exceptional location. No district of the emirate can boast of such a concentration of unique buildings, infrastructure, and amenities in one place. The central location of Downtown Dubai means that it is within walking distance of the city's infrastructure and entertainment, making it attractive to foreign investors.

Since the district is a freehold territory, it is possible to purchase full-ownership real estate here.

We invite you to get acquainted with the 10 most sought-after new buildings in Dubai where you can buy profitable real estate.
