Emaar recreates past by launching The Old Town
Emaar Properties announced the launch of The Old Town, the traditionally designed community that successfully articulates inspirational Arabic culture within the most influential address on earth.


A birdseye view of The Old Town, Emaar's traditionally designed community in the Burj Dubai District.

The Old Town in the Burj Dubai District is a pedestrianised lifestyle development with spectacular views of Burj Dubai and The Dubai Mall, and in close quarters to the colour and vibrancy of Dubai's downtown area. Construction has already begun and the first apartments will be ready for handover by the end of 2006.

The units comprise one-room to four-room apartments and penthouses ranging from 725 sq ft to 3,150 sq feet area. The sales centre will be open from Thursday, September 23 from 9:00am to 8:00pm, seven days a week.

His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence expressed satisfaction with the uniqueness of the development during his visit the Old Town Sales Centre on Monday. Sheikh Mohammed was at the Burj Dubai site to witness the first cement being poured in the foundations of the world's tallest building.

'The Old Town is more than just our trademark lifestyle community. It is Emaar's finest hour,' said Bahiya Kayed, Sales Manager, The Old Town Sales Centre. 'This mid and low-rise lifestyle choice blends the essence of modern living with the beating heart of Dubai. It is a community that is a fusion of the senses including east-meets-west cuisines, old-meets-new lifestyles and past-meets-future entertainment,' she said.

'The lifestyle in this community motivates people to get out of their cars and stroll. It encourages them to slow down their hectic pace. It also creates a safer, more vibrant community which is why The Old Town is a benchmark for future developments,' she said, while adding that vehicles will be parked in underground car bays.

With a building area spread over 3.7 million square feet, The Old Town will feature courtyard apartments and Souk-styled retail facilities recreating at once the mystical world of ancient Arabia associated with lush palms, winding alleys and bustling marketplaces with exotic merchandise. Walkways, rooftop terraces, landscaped gardens and water features will provide a sense of exclusivity. Luxury hotels and an indoor retail facility designed in traditional style with domes, arches and volumes, will anchor the commercial neighbourhood.

'I have no doubt that The Old Town development will present an attractive investment proposition to the prospective homeowner because it's an outstanding model of an integrated urban economic community with a touch of traditional Arabic class,' Bahiya said.

The Old Town Sales Centre will provide a window to what the Old Town Development will be all about and is prepared with meticulous care to showcase the rich diversity of the Middle Eastern culture.

The centre's rich Arabic architecture, period furniture and fittings are made unique with exquisite details from the Arab heritage. The ornate carved doors open into a welcome area that leads into a traditional Arab courtyard experience replete with a gushing fountain, a fully furnished model suite and a scale model of the Old Town complex. A staircase leads onto the terrace, which is complemented by a sit-out area and the wind tower.

Reehan echoes The Old Town's scents and sensibilities
Emaar Properties enhanced the quintessence of Arabia by announcing the launch today (Thurs September 30) of The Reehan Quarter at The Old Town, a community which belongs to the world's most influential address.

The Reehan Quarter, which articulates inspirational Arabic culture, is a pedestrianised lifestyle development within the Burj Dubai District, close to the Burj Dubai and The Dubai Mall and in close quarters to the colour and vibrancy of Dubai's downtown area.

Apartments in The Reehan Quarter will be handed over in 2007. The units comprise one-room to four-room apartments and penthouses ranging from 725 sq.ft to 3,150 sq.ft areas. The Old Town Sales Centre will be open from Thursday, September 30 from 9:00am to 8:00pm, seven days a week.

Today's launch of Reehan follows close on the heels of the recent unveiling of the unique project, which drew admiration from His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence, several senior government officials and VIPs. The response to the premier launch was overwhelming, to say the least, with nearly 90 percent of the homes already sold out.

'Reehan is a mid and low-rise lifestyle choice and personifies what The Old Town stands for; a fusion of cuisines, lifestyles and entertainment,' said Bahiya Kayed, Sales Manager, The Old Town Sales Centre. 'It blends the essence of modern living and the culture of Dubai. The community also motivates people to stroll through winding alleys and bustling marketplaces with exotic merchandise or simply sit back and relax along landscaped gardens and water features.'

The Old Town Sales Centre at the Burj Dubai District, off Burj Dubai Interchange (IC 1) on Sheikh Zayed Road is a delight for prospective investors and homeowners alike.

It is prepared with meticulous care to showcase the rich diversity of the Middle Eastern culture. The centre's rich Arabic architecture, period furniture and fittings are made unique with exquisite details from the Arab heritage. The ornate carved doors open into a welcome area that leads into a traditional Arab courtyard experience replete with a gushing fountain, a fully furnished model suite and a scale model of the Old Town complex. A staircase leads onto the terrace, which is complemented by a sit-out area and the wind tower.

Old Town rises amidst the skyscrapers of Burj Dubai

Emaar Properties has launched The Old Town, a traditionally designed community that articulates inspirational Arabic culture at what the company states is the most influential address on earth. The Old Town in the Burj Dubai district is a pedestrian-oriented lifestyle development with spectacular views of Burj Dubai and The Dubai Mall. The complex is in close proximity to Dubai’s downtown areas.

Construction at the site has already begun and the first apartments will be ready for handover by the end of 2006. The units comprise one- to four-room apartments and penthouses ranging from 72.5 m2 to 315 m2 area.

With a building area spread over 370 000 m2, The Old Town will feature courtyard apartments and souk-styled retail facilities. The company hopes to recreate the mystical world of ancient Arabia associated with lush palms, winding alleys and bustling marketplaces with exotic merchandise. Walkways, rooftop terraces, landscaped gardens and water features will provide a sense of exclusivity, it says adding that luxury hotels and an indoor retail facility designed in traditional style with domes, arches and volumes, will anchor the commercial neighbourhood.

The Burj Dubai development is a major prestige project and has drawn the personal attention of General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence, who expressed satisfaction with the uniqueness of the development during his visit the Old Town Sales Centre, an Emaar statement said. Sheikh Mohammed had visited the site of Burj Dubai to witness the first cement being poured in the foundations of the world’s tallest building.

“The Old Town is more than just our trademark lifestyle community. It is Emaar’s finest hour,” said Bahiya Kayed, sales manager at The Old Town sales centre. “This mid- and low-rise lifestyle choice blends the essence of modern living with the beating heart of Dubai.
