International City is a unique residential project launched in 2002. It consists of 10 country-themed building clusters offering an international living experience, which is a perfect representation of the multicultural nature of Dubai. International City is sought after by both locals and expats and known for its affordability. The project's high rental yields and steady demand with tenants make it a favourite area for investors searching for buy-to-let properties.
