Barsha Heights Overview
Barsha Heights, formerly known as TECOM, is a new commercial and residential district situated between The Greens community and Al Barsha. It lies roughly two kilometres inland from Palm Jumeirah and is bounded by Sheikh Zayed Road, Hessa Street, First Al Khail Street and Jebel Ali Racecourse Road. Construction began here in 2006 and although some 90 buildings have been completed there are still about 20 empty plots awaiting development.
The residential buildings, apartments or hotel apartments, surround the office buildings at the heart of Barsha Heights. Residents report a variety of opinions about the quality of the apartment buildings, but they appear to agree that this is a pleasant enough place to live, albeit lacking in open green spaces. Those living on the higher floors of the towers have great views across to The Greens community and to Palm Jumeirah.
There are good supermarkets and plenty of shops and restaurants throughout the district.
A plus for many is that you don’t need to own a car if you live here because the metro station is close by. Taxis are also plentiful and can be easily hailed on the street.
All properties here are leasehold only.
