Fast-paced, urban living, five-star hotels, fancy restaurants and café, party life at night, busy bee at day, this is DIFC.
Dubai International Finance Centre, also known as DIFC, is best known as the financial hub in the Middle East.
Dubai strikes a good balance between the time zones of Hong Kong and Tokyo in the east and New York and London in the west making it an excellent hub for global corporations’ operations.
But it has also been one of the most preferred homes of many single and young expatriates in Dubai because of its live-work-play community.
What does it mean living in or around DIFC?
Living in DIFC means being accessible to a number of restaurants, bars and lounges, art galleries, gyms and convenience stores right at your doorstep. Let us not forget how close you will get to Dubai Mall.
Whether you opt for a fine dining dinner at Zuma on Sunday, a girls’ night out at 40 Kong H Hotel on Tuesday or a movie date in Dubai Mall on Thursday, it won’t bring you even a tiny bit of hassle.
Also, don’t find it yourself surprised because one way or another, you’ll bump into Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai or Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum because the Prime Minister’s office just lies in the “Happiest Tower on Earth”, Jumeirah Emirates Tower.
DIFC exudes modernity with a vibrant pace all week round of financial workers, gallery goers, and evening diners. High-rise apartments dominate the residential quarters and overlook other skyscrapers and luxury hotels. Imagine, having the same unparalleled views of Sheikh Zayed Road and/or the Burj Khalifa right off your balcony. Same views as the Dh 2000 ++ offer from luxurious hotels.
DIFC is also near three metro stations such as World Trade Centre metro station, Emirates Towers metro station and Financial Centre metro station. A 24 min to Media City, 10 min to Downtown Dubai, Dubai Marina, 41 minutes to Al Maktoum Airport, 17 min to Dubai International Airport.
Living in DIFC also means seeing a lot of finance working professionals around meaning in tie and suits. Very seldom you’ll see kids or families around and it is not really an ideal residence for the calm seekers. Imagine the party all night scenario at every single clubs around Sheikh Zayed Road. Because living in this area only means you are choosing the best of Dubai’s city-life. There are no beaches, very few many gardens and parks. Basically, it is not considered a desirable residential community by those with families or people who don’t like highly populated areas but it is one of the coolest neighborhood in town as published by lifestyle and travel website, Culture Trip.
With the completion of the retail spine in the DIFC, as well as the Brookfield building is nearly done, new retail and F&B businesses are expected to flourish in the area, making it more lively on weekends. Also, the futuristic Museum of the Future in the front yard of Jumeirah Emirates Tower. DIFC once seemed like a dead zone on weekends but this is starting to gradually change.
You can buy a humble one-bedroom apartment for around Dh850, 000 to an exquisite fully upgraded loft at a staggering amount of Dh 14,000,000.
Rent on the other hand starts at Dh 100, 000 yearly upwards.
