Home to the tallest structure in the world, Burj Khalifa and numerous other attractions, Downtown Dubai is rightly termed as the tourism hub of the emirate. Previously known as Downtown Burj Dubai, it is a mixed-use community nestling numerous localities famous for their lavish residences.
Apart from finding some of the best residential units Downtown, you can explore the enormous Dubai Mall, get fascinated by the Dancing Fountains or spend a fun day at The Opera Dubai enjoying various performances.
Suffice it to say, Downtown is one of the best places to be in Dubai. Perfect for families, it has some of the finest villas in the emirate. The growing demand for villas for sale in Downtown Dubai clearly testifies the same. However, since the property prices tend to be on the higher side in this community, it can be hard for some people to find a villa that falls within their budget bracket. This, however, doesn’t mean that you cannot enjoy the exclusive lifestyle of Downtown in a beautifully designed villa. There are numerous sprawling communities located in close proximity to Downtown Dubai where you can find beautiful and spacious villas at comparatively inexpensive rates.
Let’s take a look at these communities:
Located at a distance of 9.4km from Downtown, District One is a project of AE Real Estate Group. It is a part of Mohammed bin Rashid City and is famous for its masterfully planned villas.
You can find District ONE villas in different configurations i.e. 4-bedroom, 5-bedroom and 6-bedroom. These villas are available in three different styles – contemporary, Mediterranean and modern Arabic. Each style has a distinct feature and aesthetic appeal. They are designed to offer an exclusive lifestyle to residents with state of the art amenities available at their doorsteps.
It is a vast waterfront community spanning over an area of 8 million sq. ft. Known to offer an exclusive lifestyle, Sobha Hartland is not only about lavish villas. It nestles lush green spaces that add an element of freshness to the community. Furthermore, there are numerous entertainment facilities, shopping centres, educational institutes and high-end restaurants easily accessible to the residents.
It is a mixed-used, family-friendly community also located in MBR City. Villas in Sobha Hartland are available in 4, 5 and 6-bedroom layouts. The coverage area ranges between 5000 sq. ft and 17,061 sq. ft. Adorned with state of the art facilities, these villas are perfect for families looking for a home in a peaceful setting while staying close to the vibrant city life.
Grand Views at Millennium Estates
Developed by G & Co, Grand Views at Millennium Estates is a gated community covering an area of 3.4 million sq. ft. It is a part of Meydan and houses 476 luxury units, comprising townhouses and villas. As this project lies close to the Meydan Racecourse, residents can enjoy mesmerising views of the grandstand.
The community features 171 villas in 6-bedroom configurations, suitable for bigger families. The three-storey variants come with built-in elevators for the convenience of residents. Every villa has a fully-equipped modular kitchen and a maid’s room, along with other world-class amenities.
Another community located in MBR City, Mag City is a mixed-use neighbourhood. It is a joint venture of Meydan and MAG Group.
Currently, under development, Mag City is designed to have a total of 5100 units, including villas and apartments. According to developers, housing units in this community will have exemplary architects and spectacular designs. The construction started in 2019, and it is expected that the first two phases will be completed by 2023.
One of the major reasons why you should book a villa in this community is its prime location. It provides residents with convenient access to both Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road and Al Khail Road. Furthermore, you will be able to reach Burj Khalifa in a matter of a few minutes.
Situated in the Meydan area, Millennium Estates is a gated community and consists of 198 lavish villas, covering an area of 3.8 million sq. ft. This project is a collaborative effort of G & Co and Meydan. The former is responsible for designing housing units, while the latter has the responsibility for the development of roads and facilities.
Villas in Millennium Estates come in three variants – Type A, Type B and Type C. They vary with regard to the space they occupy. However, each villa is a double-story unit and comes laced with modern amenities.
