Downtown Dubai

Downtown Dubai is famous for its tourist, cultural, business, and entertainment hub, located between old and new Dubai with an area of 26,909,776 sq. ft, making it home to the main sights of the city, which are identified as the “record holders” of the world, including the tallest building on the earth, the Burj Khalifa, the world’s most significant light and music fountains, The Dubai Fountain, as well as The Dubai Mall, the largest shopping and amusement complex in the UAE.

Downtown Dubai is collaborating with one of the experienced developers, Emaar Properties, which played their role as master developers in the development of the Downtown Dubai Project. The district has flourished for over 20 years. It blends traditional oriental architecture and modern buildings with futuristic designs like The Dubai Opera and the neighboring residential complex IL Primo.

 

Dubai's Dazzling Downtown

The development of the district started in 1998 and is still ongoing. The area of the district includes cultural and amusement centers, social infrastructure facilities, residential towers, luxury hotels, offices of world-famous companies, retail shops, restaurants, mosques, shopping centers, and walking tracks. Downtown Dubai is the residence of more than 140 nationalities and over 100 residential buildings, with more to come with the new elegant designs.

The district remains cheerful throughout the year, as there is a constant flow of tourists here. Keeping this in view, the developer upgraded the transport system, social and entertainment infrastructure, and a luxurious lifestyle for residents with world-class luxuries. The premium sector of the real estate market owns all real estate in Downtown Dubai. Budget real estate is almost impossible to find as it is luxurious.

Along with property in the Burj Khalifa, where a studio can be rented for at least AED 100,000 per year or a one-bedroom apartment for AED 120,000, residents often choose other less costly residences by Downtown Dubai developers, including Emaar Properties.

For example, Boulevard (BLVD) Heights, just a 20-minute walk from the Burj Khalifa and The Dubai Fountain, offers 1-4-bedroom apartments for sale. The residential complex includes two towers – Boulevard Heights Tower 1 and Boulevard Heights Tower 2. Each unit has a balcony, and residents will connect to a wide range of facilities within the building, including central air conditioning, a swimming pool, covered parking, fitted wardrobes in the bedrooms, and a fully furnished kitchen. The rental price for a 1-bedroom apartment in Boulevard Heights starts from 120,000 AED yearly.

A more reasonable option is to rent an apartment in the Burj Al Nujoom, a 34-storey pet-friendly residence with studios, 1, 2, and 3-bedroom units. Its Facilities include front desk services, reserved parking for residents, high-speed durable elevators, 24-hour security with guards and command and control room monitoring, central air conditioning, maintenance services, a world-class gymnasium, saunas to experience dry or wet heat sessions, steam rooms, a swimming pool, jacuzzi and much more just beyond your thoughts.

In 2019, the district became Dubai’s second most trending spot (Business Bay is the first one) by the number of real estate dealings. In 2020, Downtown Dubai became the Emirate’s leader in luxury apartment deals.

At the end of 2020, the most increased ROI in the district of 5.9% was recorded for studio apartments, as this is the type of accommodation preferred by young foreigners to rent. The average ROI for one-bedroom apartments is 5.1%, two and four-bedroom apartments have a return rate of 4.7%, and three-bedroom flats bring in 4.3%.

However, ROI can be much higher – from 10% per year for those renting out apartments to visitors and tourists on a short-term basis. A good option for an investor in this case could be hotel apartments. It is more like a hotel room, where the company that works with the operating hotel will help rent out the apartment. The residents will be provided the same service as all hotel guests, and owners can permanently receive income from their rental residences.
