Located on the Dubai Canal, Business Bay is a trendy district that is located not far away from Downtown and the Burj Khalifa area. The district is both a residential area and a business hub and is one of the most popular districts for investment. Following its example Manhattan in New York, Business Bay aims at becoming the Central Business District (CBD) of Dubai and was the idea of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed himself. The area covers more than 80 million square feet.
One of the reasons that Business is such a popular area is the central location. Any major landmark can be easily reached from this district.
Nearby roads include Sheikh Zayed Road, Al Khail Street, and Al Meydan Street
Downtown, Jumeirah, Dubai Design District, Al Jaddaf, Habtoor City, DIFC, Al Safa.
Besides commercial buildings, there is also a wide range of residential buildings available that are an essential part of the Dubai skyline. There are several villas available in Business Bay, such as the Sky Villas and the Marasi Floating Villas, but the majority of the units consist of apartments. Most of these apartments come in the form of studios, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom apartments. There are also 4-bedroom apartments and penthouses in the area but they are not as widely available as the aforementioned units. In the last few years, there has been an increase in the availability of off-plan projects, making it an ideal variant for homebuyers and investors.
The central location of Business Bay makes it easy to get from one place to another. The parking facilities have received mixed reviews but if you do not have more than one car you should be able to easily find a place for your vehicle.

One of the most important things when choosing your future place of residence is, of course, the available amenities in the area. Business Bay has a favorable location, meaning that when something is not available in the district itself, you can definitely find it in one of the neighboring areas, which are never further away than 15 minutes.
After years of huge construction works, Business Bay is coming of age. Therefore, the number of off-plan projects is decreasing. However, there are still many opportunities to become the owner of a property in this perspective area. Here are 5 popular residential complexes with off-plan apartments for sale.
