City Walk Dubai is an urban and fashionable outdoor shopping district that offers everything in one area, from international brand labels to high-end restaurants, swanky cafes, unique entertainment outlets, and fun places for the entire family.

We don’t have just one or two, but at least 9 reasons why we love City Walk and what makes this district the next best thing in Dubai.

The Neighbourhood


Dubai developer Meraas is known for creating unique environments by integrating both indoor and outdoor spaces. Their projects such as The Beach at JBR, Box Park at Al Wasl, and last but not least City Walk Dubai are just some of the examples of how Meraas has formed Dubai attractions that are inclusive of all kinds of experiences.

Dressed to Kill

Not only does City Walk have some of the best restaurants and world renowned brands, but also offers unique entertainment centers. Hub Zero is a one-of-a-kind interactive gaming experience that features futuristic virtual reality games and activities. Just a few steps away is the Green Planet, a massive bio-dome that houses several species of plants and animals that provide a fun and educational experience for visitors of all ages.

One of the newest additions to this fashionable district is Roxy Cinemas, which showcases the latest blockbusters in state-of-the-art technology to offer an immersive environment for cinema-goers and movie lovers.

Work of Art

The entire structure of City Walk can already be considered a piece of art because of its modern and dynamic architecture, but specifically, the public artwork in this district is unlike anything else in the city. World famous artists have come together and created incredible masterpieces in the form of graffiti, wall murals, sculptures, models, and other artwork that can be viewed in several sections of City Walk. Each piece tells a different story and captures an element of this thriving city.

Dubai’s Modern Marvels


Dubai is an international example when it comes to its architectural marvels. The Dubai skyline features some of the most stylish designs that are not seen elsewhere in the world. Other than the obvious choices such as the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall, and the Palm Jumeirah, this city features many upcoming monuments, structures and attractions that will truly be awe-inspiring.


Ain Dubai – The Dubai Eye

Dubai is no stranger to breaking world records, and it will break yet another record with the largest observation Ferris wheel in the world, The Ain Dubai. Also known as The Dubai Eye, this observation wheel will be located in Bluewaters Island, a waterfront project developed by Meraas Holding. With a height of 210 m, the Ain Dubai is larger than the London Eye by at least 75 m and will have a rotation time of 48 minutes. Expect to see gorgeous views of the entire city from Ain Dubai.


The Opus by Omniyat


The concept of the Opus by Omniyat is by the legendary, Dame Zaha Hadid. Located in the Burj Khalifa district, this gorgeous development’s most unique factor is its square shape and the large gap that will be present right in the centre of this building. This incredibly aesthetic project will feature residential units and hotel services led by well-known hoteliers, Melia Hotels International. This mid-rise luxury property will be launched in early 2018.


Museum of the Future


Envisioned by His Highness Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Museum Of The Future will be located on Sheikh Zayed Road. “See the future, create the future” is the motto of this one-of-a-kind institution, which will not only feature technologically advanced inventions but will also act as an incubator for inventors, entrepreneurs and innovators. Much like its theme, the building design of the Museum Of The Future is modern, futuristic, and will soon become one of the city’s biggest tourist destinations.


The Dubai Frame


The Dubai Frame is a unique project created by the renowned architect, Fernando Donis, and it is developed by Emaar Properties. Located in Zabeel Park, this structure will cost around AED 160 million and will be approximately 150 m in height. The Dubai Frame is situated in such a way that it perfectly captures the landmark sceneries and sights of Dubai in a larger-than-life picture frame. After facing several delays, the Dubai Frame is finally set to be launched in late 2017.


Dubai Arena


Meraas Holding is bringing another grand spectacle to Dubai in the form of the biggest indoor stadium, Dubai Arena. A multi-purpose, air-conditioned venue that will host some of the biggest global musical acts, performances, and even large scale sporting events and tournaments. This AED 3 billion project will have a capacity of around 20,000 people, and it is stretched across 50,000 sq. ft. Located right behind City Walk, the Dubai Arena will be managed by the Anschutz Entertainment Group and will be ready by the year 2018.


It’s an exciting time for Dubai projects where residents, tourists, and visitors from all around the world will be able to witness the architectural marvels and incredible engineering of some of the most anticipated projects that this city has to offer.
