Dubai Media City
About Dubai Media City
Dubai Media City is the reflection of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision as he wanted to transform Dubai into a knowledge-based society. Following his concept, it was designed to be the headquarters for global and local media houses. That being said, there are mostly offices and only a few apartments and villas for rent in the area as it was primarily intended to be a commercial territory in Dubai. Dubai Media City is a heavily commercialised area with most buildings comprised of offices and commercial floors available for rent. Despite that, there are a few apartments, hotel apartments and villas available for rental purposes as well. There are over 1,500 companies in this primary commercial district including companies in the digital, publishing and electronic media sectors. The area is home to the offices of BBC, MBC, CNN, Forbes, Sony, Thomson Reuters, ITP Media Group and many more. Launched in January 2011, it accommodates over 20,000 employees in their busy offices. Keeping this in mind there are many restaurants and supermarkets in the area.
