Launch and Handover Timeline

Acube is set to break ground on its latest residential project, Electra, in Jumeirah Village Circle (JVC) in the second quarter of 2024, with a handover expected in the second quarter of 2027.

Focus on the UAE Real Estate Market

Residential Segment Attraction

Dubai’s real estate market is attractive due to its diverse housing options, ranging from affordable to ultra-luxurious properties. Despite being a luxury market, Dubai remains affordable compared to cities like London, New York, or Singapore. The emirate’s exceptional lifestyle, safety, and government initiatives such as long-term visas and zero income tax for non-residents enhance its appeal to international buyers and residents.

Market Outlook

The UAE real estate market continues to deliver strong returns, with rental costs surging by 26 percent. The market is projected to grow by 3.03 percent annually from 2024-2028, reaching a market volume of $0.80 trillion by 2028. Dubai’s real estate market shows no signs of slowing down, supported by increasing demand and government development initiatives.
