October 16, 2016

If you are interested in investing in a property in Dubai, then an apartment on the famous Sheikh Zayed Road could be your best option. It is one of the most ideal locations in Dubai with something to offer for everyone from young professionals, to couples and families. Here is a list of the top five reasons why you should invest there:

Historically significant

Sheikh Zayed Road, formally known as Defence Road, is the longest stretch of highway in Dubai and one of the main UAE arteries, running from Al-Silah in Abu Dhabi to Ras Al Khaimah, where it assumes various other names along the way. Completed in 1980, it is home to some of Dubai’s landmarks, including the Dubai World Trade Centre (built in 1978), once famous for being the tallest tower in the city; and the iconic Emirates Towers.

Connectivity

Initially built to link Dubai with Abu Dhabi, today the road also connects multiple areas and communities within the city. Its five interchanges provide access to areas in both old and new Dubai, such as Za’abeel, Downtown Dubai, Jumeirah and Dubai Marina.

Also, keep an eye out for future projects such as AYKON Dare. Situated at the crown of AYKON City’s tallest tower, AKYON Dare is bound to give you an adrenaline rush when walking on the edge of the roof in harness; all at 285 metres above the city with magnificent views in every direction.
