Making the World a Smaller Place: Dubai International City

Jul 31, 2008
Bringing together the diverse cultural and architectural styles of nine distinctly different countries within a single united society spanning 800 hectares, Dubai International City exemplifies the concept of unity within diversity. The residential districts of the nine countries, which include Persia, England, Spain, Italy, Morocco, Russia, Greece, France and China, offer an exotic yet affordable living experience to its residents.

The Dubai International City property development is conveniently located on the Emirates Road in the Al Warsan region of Dubai and is only a short distance away from Dubai International Financial Center - DIFC, Dubai International Airport and Dubai Festival City. In addition to the extensive entertainment venues, commercial opportunities, retail outlets and exciting tourist attractions, it also features one and two bedroom apartment units that are capable of accommodating more than 60 thousand residents.

Dubai International City comprises of six key areas including The Lakes District & Public Park (The Lakeside), The Residential District, The Central District, The Forbidden City, The Dragon Mart and Dubai Design Centre (Dubai Gates).

Lakes District & Public Park (The Lakeside)

Surrounding the serene Al Warsan Lake, the Lakes District is a 100 hectare natural ecosystem that comprises a total of 1375 two-three bedroom duplex apartments contained within 25 buildings. The Lakes District is home to about 200 species of birds among which are some of the rarest and most exotic birds found in Asia and the Middle East.

The Residential District

Spread out across 300 hectares, the Residential District is divided into large and medium-sized country specific and themed residential developments and retail outlets. With restaurants, commercial outlets, medical centers, transportation services and a police station and post office of its own, the Residential District is pretty much self-sufficient within itself.

The Central District

The nerve center of the Dubai International City property development, the Central District comprises 34 plots spread over 21 hectares. Each plot features a 10-storey tower that is home to wholesalers, retailers and corporate offices with basement parking for anywhere upto 130 vehicles.

Forbidden City

Spanning 240 thousand square meters, the Forbidden City is a replica of the largest and one of the best-preserved clusters of ancient buildings in China. Forbidden City hosts a variety of authentic Chinese residential and retail outlets, entertainment venues and public squares set amidst spectacular Chinese themed gardens, performance courts and museums.

The Dragon Mart

Essentially a colossal trade mall spread over 50 hectares, the Dragon Mart is designed in the form of a colorful dragon with a 1.4km long Central Spine with the dragon's head at the Dubai-Hatta road serving as the main entrance. This dragon shaped mall serves as a commercial center for more than 3,000 Chinese companies and is a great place for anyone looking for a great bargain.

Dubai Design Center (Dubai Gates)

Designed to be an exclusive area for hosting permanent as well as temporary exhibitions, Dubai Design Center occupies three sides of the Dubai Internet City property development. With two hotels containing 300-400 rooms each, it provides extensive accommodation for exhibitors and visitors.
