New projects in Jebel Ali

In the past, Jebel Ali, also sometimes called Mina Jebel Ali, was known as a satellite district. However, it has turned into a growing area that has become a more important part of Dubai in recent years. Located on the outskirts of the city, Jebel Ali is a large commercial port that is important for industrial companies in the city. In fact, Jebel Ali is the 9th busiest port in the world and the largest one in the Middle East. Many companies have flocked to Jebel Ali as it is a free zone, meaning that companies don’t have to pay any taxes here. It is called the Jebel Ali Free Zone, leading to the abbreviation Jafza. Here you can find over 7.000 companies active in industrial and service-related areas.  Besides being a business hub, the area is also popular as a tourist destination and as a residential area. The reason for that is the Palm Jebel Ali island, which is one of the 3 artificial islands in Dubai created in the shape of a palm. Therefore it comes as no surprise that there are many new off-plan projects for sale in the area. 

Where is Jebel Ali located?

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

The majority of accommodation in Jebel Ali consists of staff housing and labour camps. At the same time, there are also a number of new residential projects going on. As the area is gaining in popularity, the number of new off-plan projects is rising. Here you can find both townhouses and villas that are more affordable than in let’s say Jumeirah Golf Estates. For those looking for an apartment, there are options with studios and 1-3 bedroom units. As the area is quite young when it comes to residential housing, it might be a bit boring compared to the more central parts of Dubai.

What about transport and parking in Jebel Ali?

Jebel Ali has excellent public transport options. There are numerous buses that travel to neighbouring districts. The Red metro line ends in Jebel Ali and there are 2 stations as well. Of course, it is always more comfortable to use your own transport so many people still prefer to travel by car. This is not a problem as most residential buildings have their own parking garage, usually in the basement of the building. You can also park your car on the street or in one of the paid parking garages.
