Brand View: Central Park Towers at DIFC welcomes key government departments as tenants
Dubai’s real estate market is going through a challenging time but despite this, the market is expected to show resilience in 2019, according to industry forecasts.
Long-term residency laws introduced by the UAE government for investors will stimulate greater investment and attract growing interest from foreign companies looking to expand their operations in the Middle East.
As a contemporary urban business and lifestyle destination, Central Park Towers continue to attract new tenants looking for a combination of premium office space, a convenient location within Dubai’s business community and value for money.
Central Park Towers has the distinction of being the largest single-owned office development within the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) free zone, providing efficiency and stability in a secure business environment.
Two key government departments that have recently leased office space at Central Park Towers; the UAE Federal Tax Authority, which occupy three floors and the UAE Ministry of Economy, which occupy five floors in the tower.
The Federal Tax Authority has established its new 63,000 sq ft headquarters in the office tower. The Authority is responsible for developing and managing UAE’s taxes in accordance with international best practices. The Ministry of Economy has relocated some of its departments to five upper floors in Central Park Towers. The Ministry is responsible for developing UAE’s economy through the creation of a pro-business environment that contributes to the balanced and sustainable development of the country.
With an impressive list of new tenants, Central Park Towers has become a vibrant community in a contemporary urban environment with easy access to service retailers, dining options, cafes and premium lifestyle amenities, all of which provide the perfect work-life balance.
