Dubai Silicon Oasis Overview

Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO) is a state of the art technology park and free zone located at the intersection of Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Road (E311) and Al Ain Road (E66), and next to Academic City.

It is one of the only free zones in Dubai where you can live as well as work. Besides office space, multi-use warehousing and manufacturing facilities, there are residential apartments, town houses and luxury villas.

By 2014, ten years after the project was launched, more than a thousand companies had set up operations here.

DSO comprises four component parts: industrial, commercial, educational and residential, all served by public facilities.

In the two main residential areas, Cedre Villas and Semmer Villas, you can find both town houses and villas. Several high- and low-rise apartment buildings are to be found in Silicon Residences and Silicon Park. Properties are available to buy or lease.

Construction of more housing is continuing around the perimeter of the district.

There are two schools here, GEMS Wellington Academy and the Indian High School, as well as medical centres, community centres, shopping complexes, banks and a post office.

Bad building
Everything literally
They have bad management, they treat us rudely, and only asking for extra money but not giving any services back We have no gym and they refuse to put any equipment on it No pool heater We are not allowed to put the water gallon at our doors They don't respect regulation when raising more… the rent, they suddenly raise 12000 aed and asking for more!! If you tell them no they will tell you get out if you do not like our policy!!! Latterly I've seen a lot of other buildings in DSO but this is the worst building and services in silicon oasis at all, and we are going out this year!! Show less
