Overview
Al Barsha 1 is an area located within Al Barsha, Dubai.
Guide

Situated near the Mall of the Emirates, with its fashion boutiques and unique Ski Dubai artificial ski slope, the high-rise buildings overlook Sheikh Zayed Road.

The community appears to be mainly Asian and North African, with fewer westerners and locals. Many of the residents work in the shops and restaurants at Mall of the Emirates.

From 2015 to 2020 many buildings that were originally designed as hotel apartments were converted to regular apartments, while recently a large number of new mid-range hotels have sprung up, especially near the mall. These, together with the newer office buildings, are more ‘high-end’ looking than some of their tired neighbours.

Al Ghurair Real Estate is developing heavily throughout the district, both villas and apartments blocks, with many modern upmarket villas being built to the south and west areas.

Amenities

Amenities in the way of retail and leisure abound in the glitzy Mall of the Emirates, but beyond that Al Barsha 1 has little to offer besides its many street restaurants serving a smorgasbord of global foods.

Unfortunately the area is devoid of greenery along the streets and there are no small parks nearby, but the Al Barsha Pond Park is a short drive (or a 20 minute walk) away. The 50-acre park surrounds a small lake with a cycling and jogging track, basketball courts and bouncy castles.

The neighbourhood is well served by public transportation including the metro (both Mashreq and Mall of the Emirates stations), buses and taxis, and benefits from easy access to Sheikh Zayed Road, Al Khail Road,and Emirates Road.
