  • Who Should Consider Buying Emaar Beachfront Apartments and Why?

    Who should consider Emaar Beachfront and why? 

    If you are someone looking to invest in Dubai to hold over the medium to long term and targeting capital gains and relatively stable yield then Emaar Beachfront is probably the top 3 places to invest in Dubai. 

    Firstly, it is located in a prime location. Dubai Marina and Palm Jumeirah have been highly popular for buying and renting amongst the expat community, which make up a large part of Dubai's demographic. Emaar Beachfront is located between the two communities. Dubai Marina has, in fact, been one of the most highly transacted freehold communities in Dubai. 

    Secondly, the master community is being developed by Emaar Properties. Emaar is one of the world's leading developers and is one of the preferred developers in Dubai amongst buyers/tenants. Their developments usually are fully integrated communities (i.e. nurseries, grocery stores, landscaping, well-planned out communities) and are maintained well, thus holding value over the longer term. Other than that, Emaar Properties are considered to be high-quality developments and some may argue that they can be an easier exit, as there is alway demand for Emaar's developments. 

    Third, Emaar Beachfront is one of the only master-planned condominium communities that offers each building direct beach access at its price point. Areas such as Palm offer limited beach access to residents of the buildings with mainly the villas having direct, free beach access. Areas such as Marina/JBR have access to the JBR beach, however it can get quite crowded and is a public beach. Other developments such as 1|JBR which do have private beach access are selling upwards of AED 2,800 per sq. ft. Residents of a somewhat comparable project, Bluewaters Island, don't have beach access, unless they pay to use the Caesar's Palace beach. Emaar Beachfront is a gated island offering direct beach access from each buildings' lobby, which makes it a unique development. There are only limited towers on the island and only so many plots available for development, so in a sense it makes it quite exclusive and the supply limited. This adds value to the community over the long run, as there is limited competition to Emaar Beachfront, in a city where there is a lot of new construction and supply being developed. 

    Emaar Beachfront apartments can also be a very good play for short-term rentals, especially the two and three bedroom apartments. Given the direct beach access, f&b outlets, central location, and the cruise ship terminal being located at one end of the island, Emaar Beachfront will attract many tourists, just as the Palm and Marina do. Short-term rentals/Holiday home lets usually fetch investors higher yields than long-term lets. Benefits of the holiday homes model is:

    1. higher yields 

    2. the ability to use your apartment when vacant 

    3. Easier to exit investment as the unit is vacant 

    These apartments also offer some of the most iconic views. One side of the island offers views of the open sea, Palm Jumeirah, and Bluewaters Island, while the other side offers view of the Dubai Marina skyline and yacht berths/marina. 

    Some of the payment plans currently offered by Emaar are very investor-friendly and interest-free, with up to 50% of the price being payable over 2 to 3 years post-completion, allowing investors to subsidize their installments with the rents they receive post-handover. 

    The downside with some of the units is reduced sizes from the older units in buildings such as Emaar's first six towers in Dubai. This is a trend we have seen across newer construction however. Having said that, the sizes are still decent compared on an international level. 

    Above are some of the advantages to buying in Emaar Beachfront and why it is an investment hotspot in Dubai at the moment.

  • Sunrise Bay - A New Waterfront Project by Emaar

     Feb 13 2018  Sunrise Bay  Apartments  Emaar

    Sunrise Bay is a 26-storey twin tower project featuring 450 one, two, three, and four bedroom high-end apartments by Emaar. The apartments are located in Emaar’s beachfront district and offer stunning views of the open sea and Dubai Marina. The two towers will be connected through a five floor podium level. The architectural style of both towers is very modern and contemporary, with floor-to-ceiling glass to allow for natural light. Apartments in Tower 1 have views of the Ain Dubai, Arabian Gulf, Marina skyline, and Palm Jumeirah. 

    Emaar have decided to launch Sunrise Bay after successfully selling Emaar Beach Vista, which was the first development in this community. Majority of the units in Beach Vista were sold out on the first day of launch. Sunrise Bay will be a similar project and we expect it to be just as appealing to the buyers. Given it is one of the first few projects by Emaar in Beachfront, this will be priced lower than future launches. 

    Why Invest in Sunrise Bay?

    1. Tourism - Driven Community: Once completed Dubai Harbour will be a tourist destination. This project is located in close proximity to other tourist hot-spots such as Dubai Marina, JBR, The Beach, and Bluewaters Island (which will feature AIn Dubai). 
    2. Direct Beach Access - The two-towers will have direct beach access. Apartments in Dubai Marina or any other Emaar developments in Dubai Marina are not directly located on the beach. Jumeirah Beach Residences and Al Bateen are two towers with direct beach access, however these lack quality. 
    3. Reputable Developer - Emaar is known as one of Dubai's best developers and has a proven-track record. They have delivered some of the top communities in Dubai, consistently.  
    4. Payment Plan - Emaar is offering a flexible payment plan, with 50% paid in installments over the construction period and 50% due on Handover.  
    5. Prime Location - Located between Palm Jumeirah and Jumeirah Beach Residences, Sunrise Bay is located on one of the most prime plots. The development will be easily accessible via Sheikh Zayed Road and Al Safouh Road. Future infrastructure developments will connect Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, and this development via Tram. Sunrise Bay will be well-connect to the rest of the city as well. Marina Mall, JBR Walk, The Beach, and Bluewaters Island are also in close proximity. 

    Approximate prices for Beach Vista

    • 1 Bed: AED 1.4 million - 1.5 million 
    • 2 Bed (Marina Skyline View): AED 2.1 million - 2.3 million 
    • 2 Bed (Palm View): AED 2.5 million  
    • 3 Bed: AED 4 million 
    • 4 Bed: AED 5.5 million 

    We can expect the price range of Sunrise Bay to be similar to Beach Vista.

    After a successful year of off-plan sales in 2017, Emaar has started 2018 with a new launch in Dubai Harbour, a new community by Meraas located between JBR and Palm Jumeirah. Emaar is launching Beach Vista, a twin-tower development featuring one to four bedroom apartments located in Emaar Beachfront, its latest master development.

    Size (Sq. Ft.)



    1,176 - 1,186 


    1,970 - 2,099 


    The building is designed to maximize views from all around the building.

    • One bedroom apartments are located at the back of the building which is facing towards the Marina skyline and Emaar Beachfront boulevard. They will also have a partial view of the water.
    • Two bedroom apartments are located both at the front and the back of the building. There are options for two bedroom apartments with backside view of the Marina skyline, water, Beachfront boulevard, as well as the front-facing unit which is overlooking the sea and Palm Jumeirah. Backside units are slightly smaller in comparison to the front two beds.
    • Three Bedroom units will offer views all-around. The master bedroom will overlook the Marina skyline and the living room and main balcony will have a view of the sea and Palm Jumeirah.
    • Four Bedroom units are located only from floors 27-33 and will offer the best views in the tower. These apartments are facing the Palm Jumeirah side and will offer full views of the sea and the Palm.

    Payment Plan

    Emaar is offering an investor-friendly payment plan with only 5% payable at the time of booking, 45% during the construction period (installments of 5%) and 50% on completion (August 2021).

    Emaar has not released any prices as yet, however we can assume that since this is the first launch in Emaar Beachfront, Beach Vista will have probably the cheapest apartments in the entire development, as prices usually increase as the developer launches newer projects.

    We recommend Beach Vista for the following reasons:
    1. Prime Location – Between Palm Jumeirah and JBR
    2. Incredible Views from Apartments
    3. Reputable Developer with Proven Track Record
    4. Flexible Payment Plan
    5. Decent layout and apartment sizes
    6. Price – Since it is the first launch in Beachfront, we can expect future projects to be sold at higher price points.
