Exploring the ins and outs of the Center of Now, Downtown Dubai.
Whilst iconic sights such as Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall inspire awe, Downtown’s streets are also filled with beautiful apartments, both large and small. Exclusive private drives, sophisticated lounges and upscale boutiques pepper the neighbourhood. Its quiet streets, flanked by palm trees are filled with restaurants, bars, cafés and culinary hotspots. Setting the tune to the city’s humming nightlife, the magnificent architecture instills an air of luxurious privacy in the neighbourhood.
You’ll love: Waking up to Burj Khalifa views, living adjacent to the world’s largest mall, superlative attractions, the fun, young and hip neighbourhood, the good life, an eclectic mix of tourists and residents, celeb-spotting, boulevard walks, proximity to business districts and ease of connectivity with dedicated tram and metro stations.
Home to high-earning expats looking to experience the high-profile Dubai life and live close to the best that the city has to offer, Downtown Dubai is a hot investment and residential spot. Don’t be surprised if you brush shoulders with celebrities, many of who own apartments at Burj Khalifa. Downtown Dubai also boasts a thriving restaurant and shopping scene, anchored by sights such as Burj and Dubai Fountain.
Whilst Burj Khalifa is the most expensive address in the neighbourhood, other options include smaller apartments in Old Town as well as apartments in high-rises, such as The Lofts, Burj Residences and Burj Views. A 20-minute drive is all it takes to get to most other parts of Dubai such as Dubai Marina and Old Dubai such as Jumeirah. Downtown is very close to major business districts such as Dubai International Financial Centre and Business Bay.
As the world’s largest mall, Dubai Mall, offers one of the world’s best retail experiences. There is also a mall within Souk Al Bahar which has pretty much everything from convenience stores and supermarkets to pharmacies.
You’ll be spoilt for choice with the variety of restaurants that line the Boulevard, as well as the broad spectrum of food and beverage outlets throughout Dubai Mall, in addition to fancy options in Souk Al Bahar and in any of the many hotels in Downtown.
Living in Downtown, you are guaranteed to never run out of entertainment options. Dubai Mall houses a cinema, aquarium, ice rink and multiple kid-focused entertainment options. The mall also offers direct access to Burj Khalifa and Dubai Fountain, both huge tourist magnets. Soul Al Bahar has cafés and restaurants, many with spectacular views of Dubai Fountain’s beautifully choreographed water show at Burj Khalifa Lake.
