What kind of new real estate projects can be found here?

Originally DSO was designed as an area that supports the infrastructure for tech companies. However, over the years the DSO has developed into a multicultural residential area with a wide range of properties available. Silicon Oasis is a freehold area, meaning that it is possible for foreigners to buy real estate here. Apartments come in the form of studios, 1- and 2-bedroom units while the townhouses and villas provide residents with 3-6 bedrooms. Property prices are considered to be affordable and that is why it is a popular place among young professionals that just start their life and career in Dubai. The fact that it is also a thriving start-up area, makes it also an attractive place to set up your own company. Closeby is Academic City and therefore also lots of students flock to the area looking for a place to live.
