Downtown Dubai is a thriving city hub with a unique mix of aesthetically designed residential towers and commercial precincts. Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, the vibrant thoroughfare dotted with cafes and retail outlets, also hosts colourful events that bring the community together.
The district’s design allows for a pedestrian lifestyle, a rarity in Dubai. Elegantly landscaped, palm trees – which are lit up at night – line the wider avenues. Thanks to a mix of residential accommodation, offices, hotels and retail facilities, including the gigantic Dubai Mall and the traditional Souk al Bahar, residents feel like they are living in a mini-city, which has everything on their doorstep. Downtown’s skyline keeps things interesting and easy on the eye thanks to high-rises taking turns with mid and low-rise buildings. The Old Town (a sub-community) area’s traditional architecture stands in stark opposition to more modern tall buildings, including the Burj Khalifa towering over them all.
