Downtown Dubai is one of the most popular areas of Dubai to rent in and for many a good reason. A spectacular, happening community that the entire emirate orbits around, it offers luxury living at its most well-rounded. Even the shape of Downtown is circular and well-fitting the ‘Centre of Now’ epithet often awarded to it. From premium-quality apartments for leasing to fine dining restaurants and state-of-the-art retail outlets to world-famous landmarks, such as Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai has got it all.
Accessibility and Commute Times to/from Downtown Dubai - The area is set between two major Dubai roads, Sheikh Zayed Road (SZR) and Al Khail Road, making the commute as easy as possible given the area’s popularity. For renters who work in Business Bay, World Trade Centre, DIFC or Bur Dubai, a Downtown Dubai rental makes an excellent base. From there, most of Dubai’s most established communities, like Dubai Marina, Al Barsha, Old Dubai, or Jumeirah Beach, are all easily reachable in 20 minutes. Dubai International Airport is only 15-minutes away. Moreover, Sharjah, Ajman and Umm-Al-Quwain are all one straightforward ride up north.
Apartments in Downtown Dubai - If you’re looking to rent an apartment in Downtown Dubai, there is an extraordinary range of flats available. Studio apartments for rent are ideal for singletons, but there’s a range of 1-bedrooms, 2-beds, 3-beds and larger on offer for couples and families. The priciest rentals, of course, are the ones in Burj Khalifa, the UAE’s most expensive address. When it comes to buildings themselves, most renters in Downtown Dubai appreciate the towers being well-spaced allowing for plenty of natural light. Unlike some high-rise areas of Dubai, Downtown Dubai doesn’t suffer from towers being “packed in”.
Lifestyle and Community in Downtown Dubai - Some of the biggest landmarks in the country, Burj Khalifa, Souk Al Bahar and Dubai Opera, are all based in Downtown Dubai. Hence, the area attracts high-net-worth individuals, as well as professionals with a flair for the luxury lifestyle. Further contributing to the area’s exclusivity is the Burj Khalifa-adjacent Dubai Mall, which is the world’s largest shopping destination, as well Dubai Fountain – the largest fountain in the world. Moreover, there is a plethora of dining, entertainment and retail options on offer for those who lease an apartment in Downtown Dubai. In a lot of ways, renting there is a status symbol as well.
Added Value in Downtown Dubai - Most of all, Downtown Dubai is famous for its nightlife. Some of the most popular clubs in the vicinity are Boa, Habtoor City, Zinc, Cavalli and V Lounge. The area also offers a variety of restaurants and pubs, such as Double Decker, McGettigan’s, Long’s Bar, Nezesaussi Grill and Claw BBQ, among others. In conclusion, Downtown Dubai is the ideal sub-community for those who like to be in the centre of the action and not miss out on the very best the emirate has on offer.
