The company says that a significant percentage of inquiries it receives are related to residential and commercial space in Karama, indicating a high demand for this area.
"Karama is a much sought-after district for both residents and for those with commercial concerns, thanks to its proximity to major areas in Dubai, high population density, vibrancy and ease of access via the Metro. These are all important elements for the success of residential and retail projects. Wasl will play a vital role in re-energising this city hub and introducing modern, contemporary living standards to the area," added Mohammed.
