What makes this desert city the most enticing destination for people around the world?

Dubai is constantly evolving and developing.

Dubai benchmarks one of the most impeccable leadership in the world, under the guidance of H.H. Sheik Mohammed, and has already taken the plaque for the world’s largest mall The Dubai Mall, world tallest building Burj Khalifa and now the Creek Tower, largest Ferris wheel Ain Dubai, and world’s largest man-made island Palm Jumeirah which now would be the second largest with the launch of Palm Jebel Ali, all made possible in only 20 years.

Impact on Real Estate:

Dubai 2040 Vision is a complete strategy that aims to improve individual’s lives in various aspects of Dubai which include; economy, living conditions, society, governance, lifestyle and the environment. As real estate development plays a central role in bringing this vision to life, real Estate is the king of this initiative.

Increased Demand:

What we see in Dubai today in 2024, wasn’t planned 4-5 years ago, on the contrary, the luxury infrastructure and booming city that we see today was also a part of the plan and milestones set by the government 10-15 years ago. It is due to that vision that lures and amazes the fast-growing population currently 3.5, estimated to be 5.8M by 2040. This additional population of 2.5M people over time, which is approximately 120k yearly consequently means increased residential and commercial demand, hence an increased supply of projects.

Infrastructure Development:

The Dubai 2040 vision involves increasing public transport including the expansion of the Dubai Metro line. Already the metro station plans have been made public, which would mean that the majority of the population in the next 17-18 years would reside in the proximity of 800 meters of either a metro station or a bus stop. Properties near these stations will become more sought-after when it comes to investments.

Community Development:

Dubai 2040 Vision, it is what Dubai desires to accomplish in the next 20 years. It’s to strike that perfect balance between community and tourism and heritage. The most renowned developers are already focused on creating sustainable neighborhoods with amenities that cater to residents and visitors from all parts of the world. The real estate market will likely witness a prominence on eco-friendly designs and practices.

Core settings and Investment Opportunities:

Dubai has now accomplished the provision of 100% ownership of business in the mainland for expats, whereas previously it was limited to free zones only. Golden Visa, Tax-free investments with healthy ROIs, and the recent announcement of offering citizenship, all these changes and enactments in a corruption-free economy is a preparation towards the Dubai 2040 Vision. Continued adjustments to real estate regulations and laws are expected to facilitate investment, ownership, and development processes.

Supply Diversification:

The key vision of doubling the population evidently involves retention of that population as well. So, what trends would that involve in terms of the supply in the real estate market?

Dubai’s real estate market is that it has several projects spread across the city for each category of buyers and investors. Those categories include young entrepreneurs just entering the market, or larger families looking to get into townhouses or villas in Dubai with the most beautiful master communities like Dubai Hills Estate, Dubai Creek Harbour, Palm Jumeirah and Emaar South to name a few. In terms of developers, they will focus on creating a variety of property types to cater to different buyer segments, such as young professionals, families, and retirees, in urban and master-planned areas, ensuring housing solutions that are both sustainable and aligned with the UAE’s vision for a prosperous future.
