Schon Business Park, Dubai

Dubai, and the rest of The Gulf, are expanding at such a fast pace that more and more business space is required for all of the companies opening in this region. Dubai is without a doubt the leader in opening new businesses in the UAE and the $200Million Schon Business Park, located in the Dubai Investments Park, will provide more much needed office space for the rapidly expanding Dubai business sector.

Schon Business Park is being developed by Schon Properties, and will target a wide variety of companies from new start-up ventures to established corporations. It has been developed to provide end-users with a greater flexibility and choice than that offered to most businesses, with a variety of commercial spaces that can match the needs and requirements of any business. According to Danial Schon, Vice President of Schon Properties:

"Our extensive market research revealed that Dubai Investments Park and the Jebel Ali Free Zone area face a major shortage of office space, and a lot of companies are keen on moving offices to New Dubai. Hence, we chose Dubai Investments Park as the location for the project due to its unparalleled demand and its proximity to Dubai World Central and the Jebel Ali Free Zone. In addition to other unique features, the business park is also fitted with three skylights since natural light is one of the core elements in all our development guidelines."

Schon Business Park has a capacity to accommodate 4,000 employees in 410 offices. The facility will provide 3 types of offices:

> Business Center Offices. These offices are located on the first floor of the facility and are ideal for businesses wanting to open up as fast as possible. These offices are completely fitted and furnished as ready to work business centers. This includes internet, fax and telephone facilities, as well as video conferencing, meeting and board rooms.

> Shell Offices. These offices exist as basic shells, to allow businesses to create their own configuration to meet their needs.

> Core Offices. These offices fall in between the Business Center Offices and the Shell Offices. Core Offices are modular fitted out units where the tenant is able to take beneficial occupation of the premises with minimal fit-out required to make it fully operational.

Some of the amenities offered at Schon Business Park include:

- Supermarket
- Currency Exchange
- Restaurants and Cafes
- Spa and Salon
- Health Club
- Travel Center
- Prayer Rooms
- High Tech Security
- Underground Parking

"We have been listening to the needs of the market for a long time now. Following the results of our extensive market research, we developed Schon Business Park, a solution to the shortage of flexible and cost-effective office space in Dubai. One of the main reasons for the high demand was the ideal location within Dubai Investments Park, which incorporates office, residential, retail and recreational areas all at the site itself, and its close proximity to Dubai World Central, Jebel Ali Free Zone, and the Jebel Ali International Airport," said Danial Schon.

Schon Business Park is an ideal facility for any business wanting to locate in Dubai. Even more important however, is that projects of this kind represent excellent investments. Everyone seems to be running to invest in whatever the latest residential project is that comes to market. I think that over the long run investing in Dubai office space will turn out to be an even better investment! Case in point: Schon Business Park is entirely sold out!
