Developers in Business Bay want the area to have as much activity and influence as Manhattan's financial district does. And, with nearly 47 million square feet at their disposal, there's certainly plenty of room for that to happen! As an added benefit, Business Bay is located between Sheikh Zayed Road and Al Khail Road. It's a prime spot, just south of the already-vibrant Downtown Dubai. All Business Bay needs to live up to its potential is high-quality tenants.
While the area is focused more on commercial interests than residential ones, there are a number of residential towers inside that provide a calm oasis from all of the work - complete with landscaped gardens and canals. It's all a part of turning Business Bay into a freehold city.
