Dubai

A city that has surprised and astounded everyone, Dubai is a marvel to behold, from the high-rise towers to the villas by the beach, the second largest man-made marina in the world at Dubai Marina, and never-ending new and creative developments like the Palm Jumeirah.

Most of the residents will be quick to remind you that Dubai has been built by humungous development outfits like Emaar, Dubai Properties Group (DPG), Nakheel, and others, which is accurate: Downtown and Dubai Marina are Emaar properties, while Jumeirah Beach Residence and Business Bay are DPG, and Nakheel manages Discovery Gardens and the Palm Jumeirah.

One of the most popular places to live in new Dubai, the Views which are nestled right across from Dubai Media City, between JLT and Barsha, and are the idyllic setting for walking your dog, going out for a jog, or running into friends on the street, all things that seem to have to be intentional in most of the UAE. Just step out of your building and walk through the streets of grass and trees.

The most expensive place to buy property in Dubai, by far. It spans the Dyaar Al Hambra, the Montgomerie Villas and Maisonettes and Signature Villas, with ready-made villas and empty plots for you to build on. In short, it’s huge.

Dubai’s premium financial district, with its upper-scale commercial and residential spaces placing it on par with London’s City, New York’s Wall Street, and Singapore’s CBD. With the DIFC’s cafes, restaurants, retail outlets, and bars, there’s always something exciting happening.

One of the oldest parts of new Dubai, that part of town where the expats first set up home near the beach, as early as the 1960s. The group of housewives known as Jumeirah Janes get their name from having been residents of the area.

An area known for being home to older, affluent expat families, Umm Suqeim is a beautifully presented area of distinctive low-rises and villas spread across the beach in towards Al Wasl Street. It is mostly notable for its generations-old Dubai expats and their children, just like its sister locality, Jumeirah.

The Springs is a slice of suburbia almost right in the heart of the city, and in very close proximity to Jebel Ali and Old Dubai as well, with community centers, supermarkets, restaurants, shops, schools, mosques, clinics, a health club, spas, and golf courses all right next to a very serene and peaceful residence

Everyday life in The Meadows is extremely friendly, within or outside of the clusters: children running around playing football, people cycling from home to home, the chattering of mothers, joggers, dog-walkers, rollerbladers, skaters, and the soothing sounds of a vastly diverse ecosystem of birds, crickets, and other small animals that would, really, belong in a meadow.

Dubai is famed for its high-living, and The Lakes are the picture of sunny homes in green spaces surrounded by luscious greenery, with eleven community parks and pools scattered between the beautifully designed houses and the seven lakes that give the community its name.

One of the most popular places to live in new Dubai, the Greens which are nestled right across from Dubai Media City, between JLT and Barsha, and are the idyllic setting for walking your dog, going out for a jog, or running into friends on the street, all things that seem to have to be intentional in most of the UAE. Just step out of your building and walk through the streets of grass and trees.

Developed by Nakheel Properties, every house here is designed for comfort, with clusters shaped around specific themes, making for a very attractive residential area. It’s almost like a small village, a real gated community, but one that’s not cut off from the world around it.

The most popular set of clusters in Dubai, JLT is recognized for it’s 3-tower clusters facing lakes with retail spaces, cafes, restaurants, and the occasional hotel. Most notable are the Bonnington Hotel and the Mövenpick, both home to very popular bars and eateries.

With world class beach resorts, hotels like the Ritz-Carlton, Sheraton, Hilton, Mövenpick, Sofitel, and Amwaj Rotana standing side-by-side with outlets like Starbucks, Burger Fuel, and The Beach’s high-end beachside services, living at JBR is essentially like being on a perpetual holiday in the sun, one that is equally safe and entertaining for kids as it is for adults.

One of the most popular communities in new Dubai, with some of the best hotels in the city and the most diverse pedestrian spaces, it’s the sort of place you can wake up on a weekend morning and spend the entire day exploring, relaxing, socializing, or trying new eateries.

Home to Burj Khalifa, Old Town and the Old Town Island, the Dubai Mall, Souk al Bahar, Emaar Square, the Dubai Fountain, and the soon to launch Opera District, which will be home to the anticipated Dubai Opera, the area is a mix of low-rise and high-rise residential, retail, and corporate spaces, with hotels, landmarks, and water spaces.

Briefly, Business Bay is where some of the biggest international corporations brush shoulders with first class dining and retail options, where the residents are upscale young professionals, and where everything in new Dubai is nearby: from Dubai Marina to Downtown and the Dubai Creek.

A quiet, almost majestic residential gated community situated on Emirates Road, the development offers homes of 2 to 5 bedroom villas and townhouses in a space that includes a golf course, the Dubai Polo and Equestrian Club, and a community shopping center that might as well be a full-fledged mall with great eateries.
