Downtown  Dubai  is  a  large-scale,  mixed-use  2  square  kilometer  megadevelopment  by  Emaar Properties, situated in the center of the emirate with direct access to Sheikh Zayed Road and all major landmarks within a 10-minute distance. It is home to the world’s tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa, and the world’s largest mall, the Dubai Mall. Downtown Dubai is split  into  two  main  areas  –  Downtown  and  Old  Town.  While  Downtown  represents  the  modern  age  of  Dubai  with  towering  skyscrapers  and  luxury  amenities,  Old  Town  pays  homage to the classic low-rise vernacular Arabic style architecture.
A city within a city, the Downtown Dubai neighborhood is a hotspot for long-term investment and  housing,  including  properties  ranging  from  studios  to  4-bedroom  apartments  and  penthouses  with  breathtaking  views  of  the  cityscape.  It  combines  the  ideal  fusion  of  a  quaint way of life, urban living, and the dynamic business world. 
The strategic location of the community is bound to the south through Business Bay, and to the northeast by Financial Centre Road. Downtown Dubai is also regarded as the core heart of the New Dubai.  It is now considered one of the 5 main urban centers as outlined in Dubai’s 2040 Urban Masterplan. The Masterplan classifies Downtown Dubai along with Business Bay as the Onshore International Business Hub for economic, financial, and business activities.
