Billed as the world’s most prestigious city and described as ‘The Centre of Now,’ Downtown Dubai has become a popular hub for young professionals looking for an energetic lifestyle with excellent commuter links to the rest of the city.
Downtown Dubai is a flourishing hub with a distinctive mix of artistically planned residential towers and commercial zones. A key location for tourism, Downtown Dubai has several world-class hotels including the world’s first Armani Hotel and Emaar’s flagship Address, Vida and Manzil hotels. Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, the vibrant thoroughfare dotted with cafes and retail outlets, also hosts colourful events that bring the community together.
Located at its centre is Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. The Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping and entertainment destination, and The Dubai Fountain, the world’s tallest performing fountain. The Opera District, highlighted by the majestic Dubai Opera, a 2,000-seat multi-format events venue, luxury hotels and residences, is a brand-new addition.
With the Burj Khalifa commanding the skyline and upcoming developments such as the Opera District and new innovative systems like the Dubai Trolley, Downtown Dubai is without a doubt a continuous lively centre of the United Arab Emirates.
