Ratings and Reviews

Khalid Albudoor
Great Development, Not Freehold

Most properties in Al Barsha are not free-hold with only a few exceptions. It is mandatory to be a UAE citizen to own apartments. But overall, it’s an amazing development, with all conveniences within arm’s reach.

Adi Bitar
Accessible Easily - Yet Distant

This lovely project can surely boast its easy accessibility owing to its close proximity to the metro and bus stops, but the south side has very few public transport options and may force residents to have private vehicles. 

Wedad Lootah
Too Busy for an Easy Life

Regular commutes to and from work are regularly hindered by traffic congestion, and many places may face parking shortages at times, disrupting regular errands. 

Saeed Ahmad
Great Infrastructure & Recreational

Living in Al Barsha is highly convenient, with shopping malls and restaurants dispersed all over the sub-localities. Moreover, leisurely activities can easily be accessed, such as at the beach, the autodrome, parks, gardens, and much more.

Noor Mohammed
Large Variety of Housing Options

The floor plan options in Al Barsha are extensive and offer studios to large villas at the most affordable rate compared to similar projects happening in the city. It is best for young professionals and short-stay international travellers.
