Recent years have seen the emirate of Dubai take a series of bold steps towards dictating a brave, new and successful future for itself. A future not shaped on the previous successes of its abundant natural resources, but on the new global industries of technology and tourism. At the heart of this new strategy lies the Dubai Culture Village, uniquely contrasting surrounding modern day Dubai with its focus on the ancient mysteries and cultures of the past.
Bearing in mind Dubai's focus on being at the leading edge of technology and commerce, it is therefore strangely ironic that many of the emirates most recent luxurious and prestigious developments have chosen to locate themselves within the more historical and cultural surroundings of the Dubai Culture Village.
Located along the shoreline of the Creek, the Dubai Culture Village is a rich blend of Middle Eastern history with the heritage of ancient Dubai. Throughout the Dubai Culture development, the unique architecture offers a unique mixture of ancient Arabic traditions with Dubai design. This blend, the finest of old and new, has resulted in Dubai Culture Village becoming one of the most desirable residential locations in modern day Dubai.
Divided into the residential, retail and commercial zones, Dubai Culture Village encapsulates the true spirit of ancient Arabic architecture with its wind towers, stone walkways and traditional souks. Throughout the Dubai Culture Village, luxury hotels and designer boutiques sit comfortably next to galleries, rare book shops and performing arts centres.
When it was initially launched, Dubai Culture Village was planned as the emirates most exclusive address, designed to appeal to both local and international investors alike. Exclusive developments including the Palazzo Versace, the Iris Asmar and the D1 Tower seem set to ensure that the property in Dubai Culture Village is considered to be the most desirable, and without doubt unique, residential location in modern day Dubai.
With numerous high quality luxury developments locating themselves in such close proximity in Dubai Culture Village, it seems likely that the years to come will see Culture Village achieve its objective of becoming Dubai's most desirable and sought after residential address.
