A nifty combination of old world charm with an ambiance of modern sophistication makes Dubai Culture Village an unparalleled world-class property development. Intended to enhance the UAE's position internationally in the fields of art and culture, the Dubai Culture Village property development blends the rich heritage of Dubai with ancient Middle Eastern history. The result is an awe-inspiring mix of Arabic and old Dubai architecture with fascinating sculptures, pottery and murals adorning facades of buildings and street corners.

Salient Features of Dubai Culture Village

An ambitious project by any standards if only because of its exceptional conglomeration of old and new, Dubai Culture Village offers residents a harmonious medley of ancient and modern features in one admirable package.

Take a look at some of the salient features of the Dubai Culture Village property development:

- Creekside souks reminiscent of ancient Dubai
- Historic wind towers
- Waterways topped with bridges
- Cobble stone walkways that contrast starkly with smooth as glass roads in modern Dubai
- Unique sculptures evocative of ancient Arabic cultures
- Wide open spaces that are far-removed from most modern developments
- A hodgepodge of restaurants and cafes serving an endless variety of cuisines
- A dockyard exhibiting the construction of the traditional dhow

The Master Plan of the Dubai Culture Village Property Development

Dubai Culture Village has been demarcated into commercial, residential and retail zones with provisions for entertainment and hospitality sub-zones. All zones and sub-districts are supported by world-class infrastructure and state-of-the-art facilities.

Residential Zone: The residential zone features traditional low to medium-rise buildings offering studio apartments and loft-style apartments with work areas in addition to one, two, three, and four-bedroom apartments. In direct contrast to the old-world exteriors, residents enjoy contemporary, state-of-the-art interiors that that lack nothing by way of modern comforts.

Commercial Zone: The commercial zone features schools and cultural institutions as well as academies for learning art, dance, music and a wide range of crafts.

Retail Zone: In addition to art and craft galleries, designer boutiques, trendy coffee-shops and luxury hotels, the focal point of the retail zone is a rustic souk offering Arabic herbs, spices, antiques, miscellaneous crafts and rare book shops.

A tourist landmark attracting art and culture lovers from all corners of the world, the Culture Village property development adds to the diversity of the art and cultural scene already prevalent in Dubai and the UAE region. Exclusive developments including the Iris Amber, D1 Tower and Palazzo Versace cement Dubai Culture Village's reputation as one of the most desirable residential locations in modern day Dubai.

Why Property in Dubai is so Hot

To the nay-sayers who predicted that the Dubai property market was a bubble just waiting to burst, it has proved to be a costly mistake. With a plethora of facilities and tax benefits to foreigners the Dubai property continues to zoom skywards and looks set to continue in that direction for years to come.

Foreigner investors are permitted to own freehold properties in earmarked areas of Dubai. Furthermore they are entitled to a residence visa without the encumbrances of mandatory stamp duty, capital gains or income tax. It doesn't get better than that!
