The Greens is a residential community fully developed by the top provider of premium lifestyle in the UAE - Emaar. It’s a well-thought-out area with both low-rise and high-rise apartment buildings set among stunning green streetscapes - palm trees, lawns and tasteful landscaping. Unlike its neighbouring area Dubai Marina, The Greens is not known for the hustle and bustle. If anything, it is the opposite of that. The Greens is a serene yet very well-connected area of Dubai at a midmarket cost and a variety of apartments available for sale.
Accessibility and Commute Times to/from The Greens - The Greens is set at a very central location, just behind Emaar Business Park and backing onto the Emirates Golf Club. With proximity to the metro (Internet City metro station) and easy access to major Dubai roads, such as Sheikh Zayed Road and Al Khail Road, it is ideal for professionals working in any of the following areas: Dubai Marina, Emaar Business Park, Dubai Internet City, Media City, Barsha Heights, Knowledge Village or JLT. From the Greens, you can reach Dubai International Airport in 30 minutes. If you’re looking to buy property for yourself or members of your family, rest assured that commuting will be easy.
Apartments in The Greens - Emaar has erected both the older and the newer buildings in The Greens. The units in the older buildings are slightly more spacious, while the units in the newer buildings are a bit more luxurious. However, they all have good finishes and are very appealing to the eye (the colour of sand o the nearby Black Palace Beach). You can buy a studio, a 1-bedroom apartment, a 2-bed, 3-bed or 4-bed. Whichever one you opt for your property will have either a balcony or a terrace (ground floor).
Potential for Return on Investment in The Greens - If you’re looking for a buy-to-let apartment in The Greens, you will find that many Western expats and other nationals look to live here (the reported occupancy rate in The Greens is 97% across more than 3,000 units). To give you an idea of price, last year the price of a one bedroom unit in The Greens was AED 1,350 per square foot. In comparison, 1-beds in DIFC and Downtown Dubai were AED 1,960 and AED 2,218, respectively. The Greens units also give a very healthy return on investment (ROI) of roughly 8%.
Community and Lifestyle in The Greens - When eyeing apartments for sale in The Greens, you can choose a unit with a communal view, a street view or pool view. The kitchens are mostly fully equipped and on the smaller size, so you get to enjoy spacious dining and living rooms. More importantly, all the apartments in The Greens have access to a shared private pool, a gym, a children’s play area, a kid’s pool, a basketball court and barbeques. Restaurant wise, there’s Nando’s, a Wagamama, Bert’s Café, Caribou Coffee, etc. Finally, The Greens Village Mall houses a large Choitrams supermarket, a pharmacy, a beauty parlour, men’s hairdresser’s, and more.
