Abu Dhabi Suburbs
Khalifa B (sometimes called Khalifa City B) is relatively far from the city center (a 30 minute drive). This mainland residential area is only 7km from the airport it is a recent development which keeps growing. On the outskirts of the city you will need to drive to reach any places of business, entertainment or recreation.
Khalifa B is across Old Airport City Road further inland than its neighbor Khalifa City A which has many more amenities and facilities. Other neighboring areas are Al Shawamekh and Mafraq. It is literally on the edge of the desert but big plans are in the works for making this another well serviced district. Between Khalifa A and Khalifa B is an area which is to become Khalifa C, joining the whole Khalifa area and making it a powerful competitor to the crowded Abu Dhabi island center.
Being far out of the city center the property prices here are cheap and those with an eye for investment might want to buy here as eventually it will be swallowed up by the expanding city. . The style of housing here is like that of Khalifa City A, spacious villas some rather luxurious with pools, large gardens and even private gyms. You can also find one and two bedroom accommodation to rent.
