Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO)
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.
DSO offers the latest infrastructure and in-house business services, and it also acts as an incubator for tech start-ups. The project was launched in 2004, and by 2016 more than two 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.
