    About Offices

    Commercial real estate in Dubai is in high demand, with office spaces being one of the most popular commercial types within this sector, especially among IT companies. The emirate offers a wide range of offices for rent or to purchase, where location, quality of the property, cost and infrastructure are the key factors in determining how much the space will cost.

    Offices are often divided into 3 classes; Class A (new buildings with high real estate values), Class B (middle class, quite competitive with the former), and Class C (suburban complexes).
