Dubai is a city that never sleeps. Be it entertainment or any other activity, it’s a place of happenings.
Highlighting house movers in the emirate, a new report has revealed Dubai’s top 10 areas, which see highest activity in terms of residents’ moving trends.
Releasing a report about moving activity in Dubai by movesouq.com based on 2,500 moving requests submitted on the portal, the study found that 60 per cent of all moving activity within the emirate is to 10 areas in Dubai.
Movesouq.com is a Dubai-based comparison site for moving and storage companies.
The initial report and infographic, which was released in May, looked at the top 5 areas that experienced the highest move-in rates in Q1 of 2015, which included Dubai Marina, Dubai Land, Jumeirah Village, Jumeirah Lakes Towers and Downtown Dubai.
The new report for January through September sees a similar trend with Dubai Marina at the top of the list, followed by Jumeirah Village, Downtown Dubai and DIFC, Dubai Land and Emirates Hills community.
As the year progressed, Jumeirah Lakes Towers dropped from the 4th position to 7th, with Palm Jumeirah close behind it at the 8th spot.
The Jumeirah Village community, which includes Jumeirah Village Triangle and Jumeirah Village Circle, has proved again to be a very popular new residential area to move to. The same can be said about the Dubai Land communities, despite the slowdown in the move-in rate over the course of the year which pushed it down to the 4th spot. With its continuous development in the entire area, the community should expect to experience a big influx of residents looking to move in.
The 10 areas in Dubai that experienced the highest rates of residents moving in during the first quarter to third quarter of 2015 period are:
1. Dubai Marina (includes Jumeirah Beach Residence): 11.8%
2. Jumeirah Village: 7.9%
3. Downtown Dubai and DIFC Area: 7.1%
4. Dubai Land: 6.0%
5. Emirates Hills (includes Lakes, Meadows and Springs): 4.9%
