What’s the area like?
Dubai Investment Park is a giant residential/business development still in the making, but Green Community, which sits within it, has been open for some time and has a lived in, attractive feel. Villas and flats are available for sale and rent, and there’s plenty of landscaping and green spaces.
The Green Community Centre has a shopping mall and a host of restaurants and cafés around a lake. These still haven’t received an alcohol licence, although you can get a drink at Courtyard Marriot.
It’s possible to live and work in this area, which saves a commute. You can also pick up studios and one-bed apartments for the same price as those in International City – a considerably less agreeable development.
The roundabout outside DIP is still a nightmare – it can take an hour to get to Mall of the Emirates depending on the time of day.
On the radar
Lots more developments are springing up in the area, including Westgate residential area and Sports City.
