Barsha Heights is an area of New Dubai that has been recently completely rebranded, and changed its name from the former Tecom in mid-2016. Rebranding was necessary to make it easier for newcomers and Dubai residents to find it, and both to harmonize its name with the historical background. And so, Barsha Heights became a neighbor and a part of a larger Al Barsha area, although a reference to the free zone master developer Tecom Group will keep accompanying its name for a long time as an alternative.
Barsha Heights is referred to as the most dynamic location of the New Dubai. It's a new vibrant city center for creative business start-ups and technologies. Or, as an official area’s description says, it’s a place where it’s easy to be You. And we’d add, it’s a case if you’re a real estate investor, a startuper, a businessman or a young professional. Barsha Heights is where offices of major world corporations and innovative high-tech companies in the fields of information, media and IT are head-quartered, namely, Microsoft, IBM, Dell, Siemens, Bloomberg, BBC World, CNN and Reuters. More than 20,000 people populate the area today making it, actually, a small city within a city.
Barsha Heights has all necessary conditions for business development, be it small or large-scaled. It offers Grade A quality offices and co-working places in walking distance from residential communities, as well as landscaped area, where you can spend time and relax in numerous cafes and conceptual restaurants. All you need for a comfortable working and living, including shops, supermarkets, pharmacies and other facilities, is already there at your doorstep, which not all new Dubai areas can boast having.
One look at the Barsha Heights location on Dubai’s map gives understanding of the area's great conectivity with the city center and neighboring communities. A wide road network with Sheikh Zayed Road at the first place allows getting to the Mall of the Emirates or the man-made island of Palm Jumeirah, as well as to next-located Dubai Media City free zone, Dubai Internet City and Dubai Knowledge Park in just few minutes. There is also an Internet City Dubai metro station at the heart of the area, which is both well supported by RTA’s bus network and Taxis are always plentiful.
Barsha Heights can be often seen among top Dubai areas rated according the number of handovers registered in separate period of time. The area is being actively developed. In addition to offices, there are several large residential communities with residential and serviced hotel apartments, as well as several big hotels. Interested investors can buy a separate apartment or a whole operating four-star hotel with a guaranteed annual ROI of 8 per cent. But commercial real estate surely predominates: 64 per cent of all offices delivered in the 2016 Q3 were located in just two local centers The Butterfly and Al Sajwani. Barsha Heights is often regarded as the optimal choice for office rents because of the perfect rental price/quality ratio, as well as the best Dubai location for real estate investments placement.
