Sobha Group is preparing to launch its fourth commercial project in Dubai at Downtown Jebel Ali, planned by developer Limitless. 

“Downtown Jebel Ali is one of the most ambitious developments taking shape in Dubai at present, and represents ‘Future Dubai’, with its close proximity to the new Al Maktoum International airport and the largest man-made sea port at Jebel Ali. With Sobha having developments already taking shape in Business Bay and Jumeirah Village, we felt it was important for us to have a presence in this landmark development, as part of our growing Dubai portfolio,” said Ajay Rajendran, vice chairman, Sobha Group.

Located near Dubai’s main artery Sheikh Zayed Road, and with close proximity to the Metro, the new Sobha commercial development at Downtown Jebel Ali will offer over 110 offices, 280 car parking spaces, retail and food and beverage units, in nine storey tower.

The Downtown Jebel Ali development will be unveiled by Sobha shortly, with construction expected to start by the end of the year. Downtown Jebel Ali is a 200 hectare, mixed use urban community along an 11 kilometre stretch of Sheikh Zayed Road. It will accommodate more than 200,000 people in four distinctive zones.

Each zone will have three individual districts: the Urban Centre, The Trellis and The Medina, creating a blend of business, residential, shopping, dining and entertainment facilities, as well as its own iconic, individually themed plaza, which will be the transport, retail and entertainment hub of the zone.

Downtown Jebel Ali is located between the Jebel Ali Free Zone and Techno Park, and will have 330 buildings, 208 of which are residential. Around one hectare in five will be green, open space and there will be pedestrianised, car free areas.  The Downtown Jebel Ali development is another in Sobha’s Dubai Portfolio.

Sobha Group launched its first two Business Bay developments in 2006 - 07. Sobha Ivory I and II sold out within months of their launch. Now under construction, the mirror image developments are set to bring another landmark development to Dubai’s skyline.
