Old Town Overview
The Old Town and The Old Town Island are part of the Downtown Dubai development. ‘Old’ refers to the architectural style in which this district was built; it was completed in 2006. Located in the shadow of the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa, Old Town is a creditable attempt to create a human scale quarter in the capital of this skyscraper city.
This is a pedestrianised residential district inspired by traditional Arabic architecture. There are six discreet zones: Yansoon, Zaafaran, Reehan, Zanzebeel, Kamoon, and Miska. The 35 residential buildings are all low-rise from four to seven storeys. The district is in close walking distance of Souk Al Bahar, Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain.

Old Town Amenities
Being able to take a walk in a traffic free environment within a stone’s throw of the Dubai Mall and Burj Khalifa comes top of most residents’ likes. The several shared pools are apparently well maintained and universally liked. Other amenities include children’s play areas, a gymnasium, aerobics room, squash courts, games room, entertainment lounge and coffee shops.
Those with apartments looking over the lake have fantastic views of the fountain displays and the Burj, but people living on the street side of this district complain about the traffic noise outside.
