The Gardens area in Dubai – should investors consider it?

Район Гарденс (Gardens) в Дубае – стоит ли рассматривать инвесторам?

Dubai Gardens district is a residential location that grew up in a place that was a lifeless desert until the beginning of the new millennium. The construction was carried out during the years of an active economic and construction period and was completed by 2008. The Gardens quickly turned into a popular place among investors, as engineers and developers managed to combine convenient transport and social infrastructure with comfortable living and recreation conditions there. The community stands out for its high level of landscaping: the area is simply surrounded by greenery.

Geographical location and general description

Gardens Dubai is a relatively small area located between Discovery Gardens in the northeast, the town of Jebel Ali in the south and Sheikh Zayed Street in the northwest. It is a real oasis of greenery and blooming gardens in the middle of a modern metropolis. If you look at the location from above, you can clearly see that trees and shrubs are literally surrounded by every building, and flowers are decorated not only with flower beds on private plots, but also the facades of houses.

The 220-hectare complex is developed and managed by Nakheel Properties. It is one of the most attractive and inexpensive residential communities in the city. The buildings are mostly low-rise. Each apartment building is designed to provide residents with spacious, modern apartments, and villas and townhouses have large private gardens. Pets are allowed here.

The Gardens offers luxurious living facilities, including sports and playgrounds, fitness clubs, swimming pools, on-site maintenance, round-the-clock patrolling. In addition, the community has several public pools with free entrance, where you can cool off during a hot day.

Those who work in the Jebel Ali free zone can buy or rent relatively inexpensive real estate here – apartments, villas, townhouses. In addition, it is only a short drive from Abu Dhabi, so many residents often visit the neighboring emirate for work and leisure.

The international airport can be reached in 45 minutes, and the nearest iconic sights of the city – Walk JBR, Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Mall, Burj Al Arab – in 15-20 minutes.

Historical background

The development of the desert area adjacent to other more developed urban areas began in the late 90s of the last century, at a time when the UAE was experiencing a turbulent economic and construction period. Nakheel Properties, a leading company in the principality, was engaged in the development of the project and the construction of the location, famous for the successful implementation of ambitious and innovative projects. The idea of building a residential complex Gardens was no exception. Its concept was a harmonious combination of nature and urban lifestyle in a small area that was originally a sandy desert. By the way, the name fully reflects the intention of the authors of the project, and what can be seen in reality today.

The construction was fully completed by 2008. As planned, each building is surrounded by greenery of gardens and parks. The small height of the buildings, between which paved pedestrian paths are laid, only enhances the feeling of tranquility and unity with nature. Today, The Gardens is one of the greenest and most picturesque communities in the city, which continues to develop and transform, while maintaining its special atmosphere and identity.


The Gardens area in Dubai

The Gardens location is unique not only for its abundance of greenery, but also for its architectural solutions. Inspired by various styles, the architecture of the district is an example of a harmonious combination of past and present, traditional, classical and innovative design. The design of each block has been thought out: in one there are apartments of a small area, in the other, on the contrary, more spacious. However, in all cases, the emphasis is on aesthetics, functionality and harmonious combination with the surrounding area.

An interesting difference is the thematic zoning: each microdistrict (block) is made in a certain architectural style. The buildings in the Mediterranean-style quarter are decorated with intricate balconies, arched window and door openings, and bright color combinations are used to paint them.

The Zen-style architecture of the quarter, on the contrary, is characterized by minimalism, simplicity of lines, uncluttered decor, and calm landscaping. Everything here breathes harmony, tranquility, and tranquility.
