Dh50b Culture Village unveiled

im thinking arabian bays became this but i could be wrong...

Dubai: Arabian culture and heritage will be the theme of a new Dh50-billion leisure and tourist project being launched in Dubai.

Dubai Properties, a Dubai Holding unit, announced yesterday its Culture Village will offer "an elite lifestyle in an intellectually stimulating environment," with year-round cultural events.

Culture Village will be located along the Dubai Creek next to Garhoud Bridge on a 40 million square foot plot.

The launch of Culture Village answers the need for culture and art to flourish in parallel, Dubai Properties CEO Hashim Al Dabal said. Culture Village will be a tourist landmark that will attract culture and art lovers from all over the world. The project will add diversity to the cultural and art scene in the UAE and the region," he said.

The project's various components will cost about Dh50 billion to build.

Highlights

Culture Village will feature wide open spaces, traditional wind towers, cobble stone walkways, waterways topped with bridges, creekside souks and eating joints. It will have an amphitheatre for live performances and cultural festivals, an exhibition hall, museums, and a dockyard where traditional dhow building will be on display.

The masterplan has been divided into residential, commercial and retail zones with hospitality and entertainment sub-districts. The residential district will feature traditional low to medium-rise buildings offering studio, one, two, three, and four-bedroom apartments with contemporary interiors, including loft-style apartments with work areas.

Culture Village will blend the Arab region's history with the heritage of Dubai, offering a mix of Arabic and old Dubai architecture. "Culture Village is intended to be a world-class destination that mixes old-world pleasures and entertainment with a modern and sophisticated ambiance," says Dubai Properties chief executive Hashim Al Dabal.

Al Dabal said:

'The launch of Culture Village has been inspired by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, who encourages and supports culture and the arts. The launch of Culture Village is in line with the economic and commercial development of Dubai and answers the need for culture and art to flourish in parallel.'



Culture Village will be developed by Dubai Properties, a Dubai Holding company. It will be located along the Dubai Creek next to Garhoud Bridge on an area of 40 million square feet.

'Culture Village will be a tourist landmark that will attract culture and art lovers from all over the world. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed initiated the development of Culture Village because of the important role that culture and arts play in developing nations. The project will add diversity to the cultural and art scene in the UAE and the region,' Al Dabal said.

'This project is unique as it focuses on one of the most important pillars of civilization. Dubai Properties is delighted to introduce Culture Village, which will enhance the UAE's position regionally and internationally in the field of culture and the arts.

'Culture Village is intended to be a world-class destination that mixes old-world pleasures and entertainment with a modern, sophisticated ambiance,' Al Dabal added.

Culture Village will feature wide open spaces, traditional wind towers, cobble stone walkways, unique sculptures, waterways topped with bridges, creekside souks, restaurants and cafes, an amphitheater for live performances and cultural festivals, an exhibition hall and museums, and a dockyard where traditional dhow building will be on display.

It will blend Middle Eastern history with the rich heritage of Dubai, offering an inspired mix of Arabic and old Dubai architecture. Murals, sculptures and pottery will adorn the façades of buildings and street corners.

Culture Village's master plan has been divided into residential, commercial and retail zones with hospitality and entertainment sub-districts.

The residential district will feature traditional low to medium-rise buildings offering studio, one, two, three, and four-bedroom apartments with contemporary interiors, including loft-style apartments with work areas.

The commercial district will house cultural institutions, schools, academies for art, music, dance, pottery and other crafts. World-class infrastructure and facilities will be available for each organization.

The retail district will feature luxury hotels, designer boutique-style restaurants and coffee shops, as well as rare book shops and art and craft galleries. A rustic traditional souk, offering Arabian crafts, antiques, and spices and herbs, will be the focal point of the retail district.

'We have already been approached by a number of international designers and retailers, specializing in unique artistic crafts and merchandising, interested in setting up boutiques in Culture Village. The retail district will be a unique shopping experience,' said Al Dabal.

Culture Village has been master planned as the most exclusive address in Dubai. It is expected to appeal to both local and international investors.

Dubai Properties has been instrumental in adding to the real estate diversity of Dubai with niche projects such as Business Bay and Jumeirah Beach Residence. Now, with the launch of Culture Village, the landmark developer is inspiring residents and visitors alike with the richness and diversity of culture.
