Among the most exclusive addresses to call home in the world, Downtown Dubai –branded The Center of Now by Master Developer Emaar– is designed for those with an appreciation of la dolce vita.
Aside from being home to the world’s tallest building and Dubai’s crown jewel, the Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai offers an array of housing, entertainment, and shopping options that never fail to amaze visitors and continues to keep residents happy.
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, add to development’s list of must see attractions while Souk Al Bahar, an Arabesque shopping and dining out destination, further broadens its appeal to visitors.
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.
Downtown Dubai was announced in 2003 with the Burj Khalifa (then known as Burj Dubai) being the headline grabber as the tallest building in the world. The community is master-developed by Emaar Properties and most of the developments within Downtown are by Emaar themselves (only a handful of projects are by private developers). Since Emaar have developed over 90% of the community, the quality & consistency of the development has been maintained.
The center-piece of this project is of-course the Burj Khalifa, but there are a dozen other complexes and stand alone residential buildings. Except for a couple of projects, all the buildings in Downtown Burj Dubai are developed by Emaar themselves – therefore the quality & standard of the community has been maintained. We have classified the residential buildings in this community as either High-end or Luxury.

No other office space is currently under-construction or planned in the Downtown area (as of Feb 2016).
