The Al Jadaf metro station on the Green Line is nearby, but the road system linking it to the project is not yet built.
There are several distinct elements to Culture Village:
Manazel Al Khor - A low-rise, waterfront development by Dubai Properties featuring 74 spacious three- and four- bedroom apartments. The project is under-construction and expected to be delivered in 2016.
Dubai Wharf - Launched in September 2014, this is a multi-storey, mixed-use development that has been conceived as a contemporary Arabesque town. Culture, heritage and art will be at the centre of the development which stretches along the banks of the creek.
The project includes four residential towers with 582 apartments. Residents can choose between studios, one-, two-2 and 3-bedroom apartments.
The wide walkway will front directly onto the waters of Dubai Creek and include shops, cafés and restaurants.
The first properties were handed over in Decemer 2016 and completion of all properties is expected in 2017.
Dubai Wharf is located close to Al Jadaf Metro station.
The Anantara Hotel & Spa - Announced in 2014 this will be developed by Dubai Properties and operated by Minor Hotel Group under the Anantara brand. The hotel will be located on the waterfront and will comprise 290 guestrooms, a rooftop pool, a spa and a range of restaurants, bars and retail outlets.
By June 2016 90% of the piling work was complete but a contractor had not been appointed. The hotel is expected to open in 2020.
The Middle East Museum of Modern Art - This proposed project seeks to be a celebration of the importance of Dubai Creek as a new cultural hub within Dubai as a global city. Designed by Amsterdam architects UNStudio and based on the form of a dhow, the museum holds a variety of exhibition spaces as well as leasable workshop spaces, an auditorium, and an amphitheatre for live performances and international festivals. In addition, MOMEMA offers a 60-room boutique hotel and a retail promenade on the waterfront featuring a high end signature restaurant on the top level, with 360 degree views of Dubai Creek.
Although plans for this project were announced in 2008, much of the infrastructure remained undeveloped when the scheme was relaunched at the property show Cityscape Global in 2013.
Palzzo Versace - A five star super opulent hotel opened in November 2015. It boasts 215 rooms and 169 condominiums, ranging from one to six bedrooms. There are eight restaurants: Giardino, an all-day dining restaurant, with wallpaper in the label’s Jungle print; seafood restaurant Vanitas; “avant-garde” Enigma; lobby lounge Mosaico; Q’s bar, by music producer Quincy Jones; La Vita bar; shisha lounge Gazebo; and pool bar Amalfi. Outside there are three pools and a spa.
D1 (standing for ‘Dubai 1’) is an 80-storey residential tower in Culture Village next to the Palazzo Versace. Developed by Enshaa, D1 offers its residents a sky lounge, private cinema, indoor pool, gym and concierge services. The building has one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom condominiums and opened in 2015.
