One of the oldest commercial areas in Dubai, Deira has acquired a rustic charm reflective of the city’s multicultural history. It is located on the banks of Dubai Creek, which is lined with traditional dhow boats, bustling locales and a dynamic promenade filled with neighbours and tourists alike.
Although Deira has been active for over 50 years, prospective tenants can find modern residences that range from studios to 4-bedroom homes beside the mall, parks and other advantageous locations. It is currently ranked the 5th most popular location for leasing apartments, which comes as no surprise considering the outdoorsy, lively community the neighbourhood offers and the many shared residential amenities. Prospective tenants can choose between a variety of low-rise apartments in the centre of the neighbourhood and a selection of villas tucked within its outer borders.
Bur Dubai is home to the iconic Dubai Frame, Al Fahidi historic district and a sea of long-established shops and restaurants treasured by expatriates and locals. The neighbourhood has blended the old with the new, as seen by the contemporary infrastructure towering beside charming and historic buildings.
The streets of this family neighbourhood are pedestrian-friendly, with more than 20 schools, 8 parks, 25 clinics and numerous cafés and restaurants accessible on foot. Prospective tenants have the opportunity to choose from studio to 4-bedroom apartments, as well as 3-5 bedroom villas in sub-locations that suit their lifestyle most. For example, Al Mankhool villas offer a serene suburban hub ideal for those who want to step away from the city buzz, while Al Hamriya’s apartments are surrounded by a fast-paced cosmopolitan atmosphere, with Burjuman Mall, Dubai Creek waterfront and Al Seef all within walking distance of one another.
While Bur Dubai and Deira are within proximity of one another and infused with the charm of Old Dubai, Al Barsha is located on the other side of the Dubai Frame, providing newcomers with a different perspective of this dynamic city. The neighbourhood is more dispersed with an equal blend of property types and the opportunity to enjoy a more spacious residence. The detached villas in the community vary from 3 to 7 bedrooms with gardens or outdoor terraces, while the townhouses typically stand at 4 bedrooms. The final property option is an apartment, which range from studios to 3 bedrooms and feature amenities such as fitness rooms and swimming pools.
Al Barsha neighbourhood is strategically located beside Sheikh Zayed Road and comprises the coveted Mall of the Emirates, as well as Barsha Pond Park and a multitude of hotels, restaurants, schools and hypermarkets. Residents of this community will also be near bus stops and the metro station, just as in Deira and Bur Dubai.
