The district of Emirates Living is well known to feature Dubai’s best known communities like The Lakes, The Greens and The Springs. Other popular residential areas are Discovery Gardens and Jumeirah Island where all houses featured private pool.


Emirates Living is dominating real estate market of Dubai as it focuses on family community living, and this is in high demand. There are several completed communities - and few that are going to be completed soon. Given the demand for quality family neighbourhoods, these new projects will likely be as popular as the delivered communities


Emirates Living always attract family oriented expats and in future it will keep on following the same trend predicting this district will remain a good opportunity for investors with stable income.

Asal Abedi - Downtown Dubai

Downtown is recognised as home to some of the iconic landmarks like Burj Khalifa, The Dubai Mall and Address Downtown. Residents can also find breathtaking modern living spaces that range from high rise apartments to traditional Arabesque homes. The district also offers outstanding daily life amenities, dazzling market squares and water front walkways for everyone.


Downtown is currently one of the most prestigious area in Dubai, possessing strong potential to earn good profits. Although Burj Khalifa remains centre of the attraction for visitors - and possesses residential properties for sale and rent, other residential towers are also very popular among those who want to find accommodation in Downtown.


During the last year few new projects were completed and few new towers are expected to be completed in coming months. This will increase supply for current massive demand. This District is experiencing high demand of rental property units - so that’s why it is expected that new supply should not affect rents. Lease rates for 1, 2, 3 bedrooms show continuous rise that also supported to enhance sales value of properties in Downtown.


Downtown offers prime properties in an excellent location, popular for investors and tenants. Future expectations are very high and investors may expect to earn good profits as demand for rental and sale still remains high.

As one the city’s newest and most exciting developments, Al Reem is conveniently located next to the financial district of Sowwah Island, providing just a small commute across the bridge to the city. The Island offers brand new apartments with plenty of onsite facilities such as restaurants and high end retail outlets with a large Waitrose situated in the Boutique Mall.
