Dubai Culture Village is a creekside development that will be composed of residential, commercial, retail, entertainment and cultural components, offering future residents a one-stop shop for everything.

The project is intended to become a world-class mixed-use development that aims to combine the country’s heritage with modern and sophisticated conveniences and other lifestyle offerings.

Its architecture is designed to reflect ancient Arabic traditions depicted across three different zones: residential, retail and commercial. These zones feature wind towers, stone walkways and traditional souks in a layout consisting of a luxury hotel, designer boutiques, art galleries, bookshops and performing arts centers.

The residential district is well on its way to being completed with the Manazel AlKhor project leading the way and may even be ready before its mid-2016 deadline. The Manazel AlKhor’s residential options range from three to four-bedroom apartments offering luxurious water views and amenities, and slated to be completed in 2016. Shared facilities in the development will include a swimming pool and a gym, among others.

Dubai Culture Village has the advantage of having easy access to the Dubai Metro, water taxis and abras for residents and visitors to connect to other surrounding developments and projects along the creek.

Within the commercial and residential districts of Dubai Culture Village, residents will have access to cultural institutions, schools and academies for arts, music, dance, pottery and other crafts in addition to the luxury Palazzo Versace Hotel, boutique restaurants and coffee shops.

Dubai Culture Village looks to combine the rustic traditional charm of Arabic
souks, crafts, antiques and spices with all the modern conveniences any Dubai
resident could want or need.
