The Neighbours

Business Oriented Expats

Business Bay is self-claimed as the heart of Dubai's business district and caters best to young expatriate professionals that abide by a work-centric lifestyle.Business Bay envisions the area to be Dubai's central business district; inspired by Manhattan, NYC, in the U.S. The development's central location makes the major arteries, right in between Al Khail Road and Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road, within close proximity.  The multicultural residents lead a very fast-paced, cosmopolitan lifestyle. Since the area is developing into its vision, it does not house many amenities within. However, the neighbouring developments make up for that by providing an array of top-notch amenities just a stone's throw away from Business Bay, which is why young couples and singles love the residing in the area's convenient location and comparatively less costly apartments from its neighbouring areas. The buzzing nightlife the area hosts on the weekends has grown to be quite popular because of its lively, yet posh nature.

Young couples and expats enjoy the business-oriented lifestyle paired with excellent nightlife on the weekends.

What To Expect

A Dynamic Urban Hub

Business Bay is an ongoing developmental project that is meant to exceed expectations within just a few months. Nearing completion, the area plans on hosting an array of activities and amenities to cater to not only the residents within the area, but the whole of Dubai. It is becoming a gradual extension to the Downtown Dubai strip because of its close proximity to all the desired locations in the city. The area's inner roads have been created wide enough to handle heavy traffic flow, therefore the traffic tends to remain steady within the neighbourhood. A smattering of interesting dining spots are provided within the area.

The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai provides visitors with parking lots along the canal, one of which is located adjacent to The Habtoor hotel complex. An illuminated waterfall, that lights up at night, and cascades off of the Dubai Water Canal and is fitted with motion sensors so that it can come to a halt when the ferries float past. 

Nine new marine transport stations have been set up in the canal that take visitors on ferry. The Dubai Canal Boardwalk intends to have jogging tracks, seating overlooking the water and lots of greenery. Development on the project is underway to create a waterfront to rival Dubai Marina. The boardwalk within the Business Bay area will be called the Marasi Business Bay Promenade, consisting of a 12-kilometer walkway and leisure areas, giving visitors ample space to stroll, jog and enjoy the surrounding areas. 

Here, the region's first purpose-built yachting destination, floating restaurants and cafes, five marinas, over 1,250 berths, onshore boutiques and entertainment facilities will reside. The project will also enclose unique water homes with pools, promoting residence and business floating on water. The project will be divided into three areas; The Yacht Club, The Pier and The Park.

Bay Avenue was created within the area premises of the Executive Towers in Business Bay, and within close proximity to all residential towers in the area. An exclusive venue for shopping, retail, dining and community services to cater to the residents in the vicinity. Located in the heart of Business Bay, Bay Avenue consists of two levels of indoor and outdoor 64 retail outlets. A promenade in the avenue offers a variety of al-fresco dining options. Bay Avenue Mall provides easy accessibility for visitors. 

The Bay Avenue Park, which lies right behind the retail area in Bay Avenue, consists of a vast green space, a jogging track, two children’s playground, ample parking facility and more. It also has two outdoor gymnasium areas, a skate park, a trampoline, a water fountain, two retail kiosks and a mosque. Yoga classes are regularly conducted in the park. Additionally, the main attraction of the park is a skate park, complete with comparatively small ramps, poles and track to practice floor skills and caters to skaters of all ages and levels.

Nightlife has started to become very popular within Business Bay. Since much of the residential population consists of young, hard-working professionals, the area features many bars to help unwind after a busy day, or hip new clubs for the party-lovers on the weekends. VIP Room Dubai, a very exclusive new club located in the vicinity, has quickly become one of the best clubs in town. Hosting occasional celebrity visits, the club is located in the J. W. Marquis Hotel in Business Bay; the tallest hotel in the world. Other popular nightlife venues in the vicinity include: Iris, Swim & Tonic and The Backyard.

What Not To Expect

Peace Amidst Scenic Views

Constant construction within the area can be a nuisance for many as large parts of the locale are somewhat barren. It can cause chaos and disturbance for many, and until all of the construction is completed, the area may not suit many as the area can get very dusty and noisy. Moreover, the district lacks facilities for its residents as many of the projects are underway. Buildings in Business Bay are set further apart from each other which makes walking problematic as the area still lacks sidewalks because it is still under construction. Furthermore, the area is at a disadvantage because it lacks scenic views; the area hosts only one park and and a canal and not all apartments overlook either of those. 


Elegant Skyscrapers

Executive Towers

Business Bay is an area of sky-high towers surrounded by a fairly manicured series of water-views in the form of a man-made canal. Although most of the area is still under construction, the district aims to put on a display of spectacular buildings, promoting the highest quality of elegance within. The array of impressive buildings that Business Bay will host will include brand new skyscrapers with quality furnishings and facilities. Residential apartments in the area are spacious and airy, including a wide range of options to choose from; from studios to 5 bedroom apartments, penthouses, lofts and duplexes, all upscale apartments that are extremely well-lit.

All the towers are interconnected, so they can enjoy a shopping mall called Bay Avenue, which is spread over two floors at the podium level and can be accessed by all towers. The mall hosts 140 retail outlets, and quite a few top-notch cafes and restaurants. The third level is known as the Plaza level, or the Courtyard, and hosts an array of communal facilities; a pool, gymnasium, children's play area, and many more.

The Opus by Omniyat, designed by the late Zaha Hadid is a true architectural wonder in itself, built by impressive engineering, the building displays an intriguing void in the middle of the structure's heart. It hosts an array of residences, hosting different facades and a world-class hotel. Will offer an array of places to eat and drink, including casual and fine-dining, along with boutique retailers, vibrant bars and an international night club, along with many recreational facilities for the residents.
