The Old Town is a uniquely pedestrian-friendly residential neighbourhood that integrates inspirational Arabian architecture in a modern setting.
A fully established community in the heart of Downtown Dubai, The Old Town is an architectural masterpiece. Drawing inspiration from traditional Arab architectural styles, the community stands out among the high rises in the 500-acre mega-development.
The Old Town features low-rise three storey apartment buildings and a few mid-rise buildings with penthouses.
The building textures reflect the gypsum, clay or sarjool plastering used in the early 20th century in the region while earthy natural tones reflect the surrounding landscape. Terraces, balconies, parapets, pergolas, recesses, and niches make for comfortable outdoor living while views are enhanced with elegant window and door openings.
The Old Town has over 1,560 residential units spread over six quarters; Yansoon, Zaafaran, Reehan, Zanzebeel, Kamoon, and Miska. With one, two, three, and four bedroom residential suites to choose from, units range in size from 660 to 2,550 sq ft.
The homes feature high ceilings, traditional motifs and symmetrical arches, reflecting the Arabian grandeur. The amenities are world-class with high quality finishes, modern kitchen and bathroom fittings, hi-speed telecommunication links and a choice of entertainment connectivity.
Residents can relive the charm of a vintage Arabian lifestyle in a car-free zone that is lined by boulevards, retail centres and bustling cafes.
Lifestyle amenities include children’s play areas, relaxation areas, pool facilities, gymnasium, games room, aerobics room, squash courts, entertainment lounge, coffee shops, and steam rooms.
