Abu Dhabi‘s real estate market is fascinating due to its comprehensive development, which impacts all aspects of life and the economy within the emirate and the country as a whole. The region’s growth is not limited to housing construction but includes the development of entire neighborhoods, catering to the needs of both expats and the local population. New residential projects go side by side with hospitals, schools, universities, and, of course, museums – the hallmark of Abu Dhabi in the 2020s.
Along with culture, Abu Dhabi is developing education. The capital of the UAE precisely because of the opportunity to receive a good education and the associated long-term prospects for children.
Adherents of European education will appreciate the branch of the Paris Sorbonne, which has been working here since 2006. Teaching at the Abu Dhabi branch is conducted in French and English. For exact sciences, students go to Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research (KUSTAR). The university graduates chemists, biologists, and engineers in a variety of industries – from oil to aerospace. The competition for admission reaches 10 people per place, while education remains paid: No. 1 in the rankings of Middle Eastern universities, KUSTAR is valued both in the Persian Gulf region and beyond.
The humanitarian direction covers UAEU Abu Dhabi University, which was founded personally by Sheikh Zayed. UAEU currently trains lawyers, doctors, economists, and social science researchers. The number of students at Abu Dhabi University exceeds 10,000, they come from 75 countries – here students, not in words, but in deeds, see what a multicultural environment is, and from their student days, they absorb the values of respect for other peoples and cultures.
It is not surprising that if Dubai is most often considered an investment point and sometimes people do not even come to the emirate to conclude a deal, then in Abu Dhabi they buy real estate for themselves and their heirs. Children may not even be born yet, but parents are already investing in projects under construction so that by the time they grow up, their heirs will receive quality housing in one of the most convenient and developed metropolises on the planet.
The consequence of this approach is a steady increase in housing prices in Abu Dhabi. Luxury lots and waterfront housing are in particular demand. An apartment, villa, or penthouse with beach views and the full feeling of a resort and vacation can be purchased on Al Reem Island, located 600 meters from the mainland.
Reem Hills is being created with an emphasis on a healthy lifestyle; there will be many sports areas, and jogging and cycling paths. Smart transport infrastructure, utilizing the latest advances in urban planning, provides easy and fast access to mainland Abu Dhabi. However, residents of Reem Hills may not want to go anywhere: the Reem Mall shopping complex located here includes 85 restaurants and more than 450 shops.
