The Opera District is a new area in Downtown Dubai designed to energise Dubai’s events and tourism sectors by providing a stylish cultural destination.
It aims to promote the arts, culture, and events scene by ensuring global exchange and promoting local talent.
The Opera District features luxury hotels, elegantly designed residential and serviced apartments, a retail plaza, waterfront promenades, recreational spaces and parks.
The Opera District will eventually become part of the nine-suburb Dubai development centred on ‘The Needle’ at Dubai Creek Harbour which will be the world's tallest tower.
The Opera District is located off Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard in Downtown Dubai.
The district includes cultural facilities, residential properties and leisure amenities, and is to be the UAE’s new cultural centre.
Surrounding Dubai Opera, the country’s first multi-format theatre, will be a museum, two art themed hotels, design studios and galleries.
The homes for sale within the district will provide an exclusive and exception place to live and enjoy culture and the arts.
The new Dubai Opera has been designed by the award-winning architects WS Atkins. Its form echoes the traditional Emirati dhows which can still be seen sailing in the Dubai Creek.
Inside, the 21,530 sq ft interior houses a state-of-the-art 2,000-seat multi-purpose performing arts venue. Moveable floors enable the space to be converted into different formats: an opera house, theatre, concert hall, banquet hall or exhibition space.
Outside, a sky garden and rooftop restaurant.
The Opera District will also include luxury hotels, a retail plaza, waterfront promenades, recreational spaces and parks, as well as up-market residential and serviced apartments.

HOK developed a comprehensive master plan organizing the vehicular and pedestrian circulation to create a vibrant cultural district while positioning the towers to frame key views.
Developed in collaboration with the client’s management team, engineering disciplines, retail consultants and the various tower architects, the master plan and landscape strategy completes the public realm.
The accelerated development schedule meant that the Burj Khalifa Tower site was in constant evolution. A master plan report and design guidelines set the framework for the next stage of implementation.
