Uptown Motorcity: Away from the main city but close to the action

Uptown Motorcity residentsTetiana and Rashed, who live in a two-bedroom flat, find the community more or less perfect

Dubai MotorCity, which is dubbed as a “city within a city,” features UPTOWN MotorCity, Business Park MotorCity, Green Community MotorCity and the Dubai Autodrome.

It is one of the hottest communities in Dubai offering a unique lifestyle to residents. Designed on a motorsport theme and with an architecture that resembles an English spa town, it is a master planned community with a choice of studio, one, two and three-bedroom apartments.

With a heady mix of recreational facilities, play areas, retail outlets, schools and sports facilities, it is considered a residential heaven for people of all ages, offering a balanced pace of life in peaceful and healthy surroundings.

A series of arterial roads like Emirates Road,Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, Umm Suqueim Road and Hessa Street connect MotorCity to other parts of Dubai.

Its being located in the neighborhood of the elite Arabian Ranches, on the intersection of Shaikh Mo-hammed bin Zayed Road and Umm Suquiem Road, provides an abundance of experiences for people with varied interests. Plenty of sports facilities abound, and the presence of the Autodrome and Kartdrome adds a unique dimension to the recreational facilities in the area.

The locality, being pet-friendly, means that people with pets are happy to move into and reside here in the amorous company of their pets. Pet owners do not have to travel far as several pet stores and a veterinary clinic are present in the area.

Landscaped parks, crescent-shaped streets and central verandahs are unique features of this stylishly designed locality.

Recently, the opening of the GEMS Metropole School has further strengthened and added value to MotorCity.

A safe and secure community, flanked by security guards that are always on hand to help with the management of traffic, parking and building security.

Tetiana Bogdanova and Rashed Jabrah live in a two-bedroom apartment in UPTOWN MotorCity. Tetiana is a manager in a consultancy company which is owned by her husband, Rashed. Tetiana and Rashed moved to community from Dubai Silicon Oasis around three years ago.

Tetiana says she is absolutely in love with MotorCity’s great location.

In her own words, “UPTOWN MotorCity is green. It has swimming pools, barbeque and party areas, and clean spaces for picnics and outings. It is so much of a joy to inhale clean, fresh air. As there is no construction, the calm, peaceful, safe and secure environment is a big plus.”

Spacious apartments, characterized by high ceilings and big balconies, are something that Tetiana adores in this place.

The easy-flowing traffic on the salik-less highways also makes commuting to the main city pretty convenient and time saving (it takes 20 minutes to reach the city center).

Tetiana says, “Myparents from Ukraine visit us every year and they love their stay here in MotorCity, which they find very calm and relaxing!”

Tetiana feels that a better connectivity to major parts of the city by means of public transportation will greatly help in making things better for MotorCity residents. Other than that, “this locality is more or less perfect!” adds Tetiana.
