Business Bay Overview
Just 1.5km from Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building, Business Bay lies at the end of Dubai Creek, once a cul-de-sac waterway emanating from Deira, but now connected to the sea at Jumeirah Beach. Still in development, Business Bay comprises 64 million square feet of freehold projects and is set to become a new business hub of the region with office and residential towers, landscaped gardens and a network of roads and waterways. It is hoped that this up-and-coming district will attract businesses from around the world and sharp-witted investors to buy into it.
Since construction work recommenced following the economic downturn the proportion of residential buildings has risen. There are now more apartments coming onto the market here than originally envisaged in the master plan. A new project to build a pair of twin towers here housing a 447-room 5-star hotel and 136 serviced apartments has started and is due to be completed in 2016.
Marasi Business Bay is a novel development made possible by the Dubai Canal connection to the open sea. Comprising a collection of floating 'water homes', a marina and associated shops and promenades, Marasi will be at the centre of a transformed Business Bay as ferries, yachts and water taxis make their way out to sea just as they do at Dubai Marina.

Business Bay in the News
Gulf News, 7th Jan 2020
Business Bay is well connected to both Sheikh Zayed Road and Al Khail Road, the two main highways running the length of Dubai. The international airport is a 25 minute drive and Dubai Marina just 20 minutes, the same journeys each taking about 30 minutes by train from Business Bay Metro station.
Phase 2 of the Parallel Roads Improvement Project at Business Bay was completed in June 2018. The works included improvements to the Western part of the parallel roads in the sector between Al Meydan and Financial streets across the Business Bay by widening the street from three to four lanes in each direction and by building service roads in both directions in most parts of the project.
The 100-metre wide Dubai Water Canal that connects Business Bay to the sea is part of Dubai's ambitious plan for water transport. It allows passengers to take water transport from the Dubai Creek to reach Business Bay, Jumeirah, Al Wasl or Sheikh Zayed Road. Stations for water buses and private boats have been built on both sides of the canal, making this one of Dubai's major attractions both for tourists and residents.
