Business Bay is one of the premiere locations to live in Dubai with an abundance of well designed residential towers, office towers and hotels Located next to the iconic neighbourhood of Downtown Dubai and along the banks of the Dubai Water Canal the area is a sought after destination for professional singles, families and investors.
The fast paced and it’s convenient location close to the office towers in Downtown Dubai, DIFC on Sheikh Zayed Road make Business Bay a professional and commercial hub, ideal for commuters. Investors like the area since it is still under development and will feature as the main place for Expo 2020 visitors to stay during the exhibition later next year.
Part of Business Bay’s increased popularity and expansion is due to the opening of the Dubai Water Canal. The canal was further developed and extended into the Persian Gulf with five bridge crossings being added. The 3km canal has a boardwalk offering great views of Dubai’s skyline, a water taxi service with 9 stations and a range of exclusive hotels, restaurants and cafes along its banks.
