Living in Downtown Dubai


Billed as the world’s most prestigious square kilometre, and often described as “The Centre of Now”, Downtown Dubai is the home of luxury. It offers the perfect balance of business and leisure, with its beautiful lakes, green spaces, world-class hotels and shopping malls.


At the heart of Downtown stands the majestic Burj Khalifa with its observation deck open to the public. The area is also home to the Dubai Fountain set in the 30-acre Burj lake, with its spectacular display incorporating lights and music.


The downtown district boasts unrivalled entertainment options with attractions such as the Dubai Opera and the Dubai Aquarium. Modern art enthusiasts will find a superb selection of works from both well known and emerging artists at the Emaar Pavilion, whilst the Dubai mall hosts an ice rink and a 22 screen cinema.


Those seeking tranquillity within this bustling area, will be captivated by Burj Park, a three-hectre island in the middle of the Burj lake offering unrivalled views of the Burk Khalifa and Dubai Fountain.


Downtown offers easy access to the financial and business nerve centres of the city, while shopaholics can explore the city’s traditional souks and the record-holding Dubai Mall.
