I hope you had a great weekend, let’s take a look at the Dubai property market last week!
It was another big week for Dubai’s real estate sector as the market saw 3,321 sale transactions worth a huge AED 11.1 billion!
That’s not all, get this, the most expensive penthouse in Dubai was sold last week for a whopping 420 million dirhams.
Sheeeesh! The penthouse is located in Marsa Al Arab being on the highest floor and has a 17,000 square foot outdoor area featuring a private pool and 360-degree ocean vistas!
Can you imagine?
Now for some city updates…
Over the coming year, the RTA plans to decarbonise all taxis, limousines and public buses, and design its buildings with net-zero energy consumption.
It said the strategy would result in reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 10 million tonnes and save AED 3.3 billion.
How impressive is that?
