House Hunting (2)

The following day we went to Uptown Motor City, on the map it is just under the Dubai Autodrome.

It is a bit more out of the way, but designed as a close community in that there is an emphasis on open spaces, landscaping, family living.

The apartments themselves were adequately large and fitted, with no real issues.  I was impressed with the quality of some of the finishings, e.g. the windows and door to balcony.

  • The good: very nice outdoor spaces, facilities (gym, swimming pool, basement parking, security), comfortably spaced apartments, good standard of construction, close to Emirates Road, close to the largest Spinney’s in Dubai, other shops / cafes to open soon.
  • The bad: no other developments / attractions close by apart from the autodrome (but I’m no petrolhead), surrounding areas still under varying levels of construction, to get to Emirates Road there are only temporary small single lane access roads for now.
  • The ugly: apparently rent prices actually went up since the last couple of months. Hopefully they stabilise a bit by the new year.
