About the area
Located adjacent to the Sheikh Zayed Road, The World Trade Centre and the Burj Khalifa, the emergence of Dubai International Financial Center (DIFC) is a critical part of Dubai´s plan to attract high quality expatriate staff in to what they plan will be a world class financial centre. Residential and commercial blocks within the DIFC have already begun construction but only 30% of the total DIFC area will be residential. It is designed for financial and business professionals seeking to live, work and enjoy their leisure time in one strategic location. The inclusion of a museum, art gallery and a performing arts centre will add to its overall attraction. Over the medium term we expect the DIFC will command one of the highest values per sq.ft within Dubai along with high rental yields as one would expect from property near the business district. Many financial relate companies are established in DIFC principally within the impressive ´´Gate´´ which represents the first of a number of startling commercial blocks.
