Business Bay is one of the most coveted business and residential addresses in Dubai. With its many mixed-use developments, it has become a popular hub for financial institutions, and retail and hospitality businesses.

It has been developed as a main business district on the lines of Manhattan, and is strategically located near the Dubai Financial Centre and Downtown Dubai where Burj Khalifa can be found. It is connected to the rest of Dubai’s main districts via Shaikh Zayed Road and a Metro station carrying its name.

The freehold area is dotted with towers of various sizes, most of them offering space for offices and commercial leasing.

One of the most prominent projects in the area is Bay Square. It consists of several buildings surrounding a fountain square. The buildings are designed for offices with sizes of up to 4,000 square feet, residences and a boutique hotel.

Single Business Tower offers full floors of modern shell and core office space. With stunning double-glazed floor to ceiling windows, it offers a 360-degree panoramic view of Dubai. Apart from a spacious lobby and 12 high-speed elevators, it also has a state-of-the-art gym and prayer room. The tower is just a few-minute walk from the metro station and is accessible from major roads.

The Ubora Towers are composed of commercial and residential units. The commercial building provides businessmen with a choice of fitted and shell and core offices in varying sizes. It also offers retail space.

The stunning The Oberoi Centre is a dual-tower structure which is home to a luxury hotel and offices. Each of its commercial floors is divided into four which can be rented/sold either as a whole unit or separate units.

With many other office addresses like Burlington Tower, Oxford Tower and Regal Tower, it is no surprise that Business Bay is preferred by many.
