What is mixed-use?

Is this your first time hearing the term ‘mixed-use’? Before talking about Sobha Heartland, we should first discuss the term ‘mixed use’. Simply put, a mixed-use is what professionals call a development that combines residential, commercial, and retail uses. Mixed-use comes in many forms, including a building, a block, or a neighborhood. Because everything is nearby, people who choose to live in a mixed-use are less dependent on their cars. They are more likely to walk or bike to their destinations. A major advantage of mixed-use is the efficient use of land.
