Positives
Community area, clinic and pharmacy, 24 hours supermarket
Negatives
Poor maintenance team, high rental
Standing in the very entrance of Silicon Oasis (Al-Ain Road side), I see it the biggest and most complex building in the area. It has a great community area with pool, Aster pharmacy and clinic, beauty center and a 24 hours open super market. The maintenance team is not very responsive, more… and that's nearly the only drawback of the building (along with higher rental rate than average).Show less

Positives
Nice outside area with swimming pool, Gems Wellington Academy and British Orchids Nursery exactly across the street, 2 supermarkets Almaya in our building and Choitrams across the street, Aster Medical and Pharmacy in our building
Negatives
Price for rent, not many restaurants around
Nice place for family with kids as the fantastic school is right across the street, so kids can get to classes within 3-4 minutes. There is personnel from school who stop the traffic in the mornings and afternoons so kids can cross the street easily. There is also a British more… Orchids Nursery 2 minutes away. Generally the infrastructure is something we can't complain about. 2 supermarkets (Almaya, that works 24/7 is located in our building) and Choitrams right across the street. Aster Medical Clinic+Dentist+Pharmacy are also located in our building. So many things you can take care of not even crossing a street, just taking the elevator down. That is very comfy. The building itself has a nice inner yard with trees, benches and swimming pool. Behind our building there is a small park with fountains, flowers and trees. The house looks nice and well maintained. There are always people who are cleaning, wiping, watering the trees and the flowers, cleaning the pool etc. There are 2 pools - one indoor for women and children and one outdoor with a small jacuzzi section and a little pool for younger kids. The building has 2 gyms - for males and females. We have 2 parking places in an underground garage. The cars stay clean from sand that can be blowing from the desert. There are several restaurants at the roundabout where the building is located: 2 Indian restaurants with vegetarian food, 3 kebabs, 1 Chinese restaurant (Monk), Baskin Robbins and a Burger World and a Coffee Shop. Though we are rarely dining here due to our food expectations. There are 2 banks in a SUT Tower, right across the street: Emirates Islamic Bank and some other chain that I don't remember now. The building is located it a great location, at the connection of the main roads (Sheikh Mohammed Road, Al-Ain Road, Academic City Road) so you can easily drive any direction right from home. Mirdiff City Center is 17 km away or 10 min drive (which is really close if you are used to life in Dubai). There is a Post Office in Silicon Oasis Headquarters (Pineapple Building), Costa Coffee, NBD Bank and a few restaurants there as well. So, to make a summary, the best thing that we value is a location and infrastructure. We are also happy with the maintenance of the building - they come within 1 hour to fix anything you need. The quality of the building and facilities is average as anywhere in Dubai. The keyword is - the building is NEW. So no one has been using our flat before, kind of nice, isn't it? Show less

Positives
It is close to everything. School, food, supermarket, clinic, and it is also a peaceful place.
Negatives
No view from the balcony, just the desert.
At less than 500 sq ft, this studio unit is indeed small, but still enough for a bachelor or couple. There is a huge balcony attached. As the unit is in the mid-floors of the building, roadside noise is not noticeable. The building is still relatively new, so the finishing more… quality is still very good. Fitness facilities, swimming pools with regulated temperature, and a squash court are also within the building. There is a clinic downstairs, as well as a sandwich shop and salon. A restaurant and grocery store are still under construction, but the neighbourhood is not short of options when it comes to food or supermarkets. Show less

Positives
The access to services and the curb appeal of the building
Negatives
Children exploring how their voices echo in the main courtyard!
Silicon Gate 1 has a beautiful presentation on facing onto the main round about. The location of this 4 tower complex allows for shopping, eating out and banking services at your finger tips. The building itself is new, well maintained and secure. The complex has a medical centre, pharmacy, swim more… pool and gym for men and women. The downside is there is no place for children to play. This means they run around and are somewhat noisy in the main entrance courtyard of the building. Depending on where you flat is located, this can be bothersome. The facility maintenance is absolutely excellent. Being new to Dubai and hearing about the big jump in rent/ purchasing costs of flats, I am not sure about the value. I can say, that for the cost of living here, I am satisfied with the service and quality of living I experience here. Show less

Prices
the area is somehow pedestrian friendly and has good services (restaurants, cafes pharmacies...etc) and the building's facilities are great, with heated pool with jaccuzzi, kids pool, decent gym, ladies' pool, game room, and sauna. building looks brand new with massive parking and large guest parking. however the prices in the area has more… gone wild compared to the past couple of years.
