Al Quoz is a large prominent area located in the western part of Dubai. The residential areas of Al Quoz 1, 2 and 4 are dotted with several spacious villas and are located in close proximity to popular destinations such as Business Bay and Al Barsha, and Jumeirah and Umm Suqueim on the other side.

The Al Quoz industrial area, located in the southwestern part of the neighborhood, comprises four sub-districts referred to as Al Quoz 1, 2, 3 and 4. This area has been developed by the Dubai Municipality as an industrial and commercial hub where several businesses have housed their logistics and production facilities due to its central location and proximity to important neighborhoods. Several big names such as Dulsco, Danube Building Materials, Aramex, etc., have made this their location of choice.

The Al Quoz industrιal area is particularly known for its warehouses and labor accommodations. These house thousands of laborers servicing development projects such as those in Dubai Marina, Jebel Ali Free Zone as well as several hotels in Dubai.

Rents of warehouses depend on add-ons such as power, insulation and the availability of loading and unloading areas. Several fire accidents in the Al Quoz industrιal area in recent years have led to the imposition of strict fire safety guidelines.

Nowadays, many new businesses and showrooms are seen mushrooming along the northern boundary of Al Quoz. These are mainly car dealerships, furniture depots, houseware distributors, industrial equipment retailers and general service providers.

While the area already boasts good external connectivity through Shaikh Zayed Road and Al Khail Road, one of its recent accomplishments has been a Dh22 million road contract for the construction of internal roads at Al Quoz 3 and a part of Al Quoz 4.

Handy Hints
• Rents of warehouses subject to add-ons, i.e. power, insulation, etc.
• Labor accommodation in Al Quoz home to thousands of laborers
• The Al Quoz Industrial Area boasts great road connectivity
