Location makes or breaks a business. One of the principal considerations when making an investment decision, it is key to the growth and success of any venture.
Dubai is dotted with free zones, areas dedicated to specific industries and business districts, giving every investor a wide range of choices when it comes to setting up business here.
One of the prime business locations in the emirate is Dubai Marina (which includes Jumeirah Beach Residence), hugely popular as a residential destination. Its vast space teems with towering buildings in every architectural design imaginable, boasting state-of-the-art amenities and facilities complemented with splendid views of the marina, the beach and the Dubai skyline.
Dubai Marina is as much a business hub as it is a residential haven. Towers built for business purposes offer office space in various forms to suit different requirements: furnished, serviced, and shell and core. These business locations also offer a full gamut of services, making Dubai Marina a sought-after location.
Aside from the business towers, the entire community is also a hodge-podge of commercial establishments, retail outlets, dining venues, entertainment hotspots and hotels – all co-existing and thriving at the same time. Its three trendy hangouts, the Marina Walk, The Walk and The Beach, draw visitors from near or far, day in and day out, weekend or not.
While Dubai Marina Mall is the area’s major shopping complex, it also hosts small boutiques and shops at The Walk and The Beach, and even an outdoor cinema in a beach setting. Furthermore, the trio of hip places is lined with a wide range of cafes and restaurants. The Walk is also a venue for art exhibits, and seasonal garden and night markets.
With its proximity to the business district, and excellent transport links via the Dubai Metro and the Dubai Tram, Dubai Marina is the perfect place to do business in Dubai.
