Why Downtown?
Community is great and everything is walking distance
You can't go wrong with Downtown apartments that are built by Emaar. Top maintnenace, security, easy access. Apart from that, people are very classy and friendly. The gym is one of the best across all Dubai & the safety measures are all in place. Although I've lived around almost all more… across dubai (I was born here), I would never think of moving out of Downtown especially during the months between Nov & May as it becomes very lively!Show less

Location
Other people disrespect to residents
Been living there already for couple of years in the smallest one bedroom apartments which are separated from the entire building. Good thing - private, bad thing - business center just opposite door (loud conferences, guest walking around) nursery (oh God please!) and corridor where 90% of passengers has to more… walk through. Walls? - gypsum at best! Price? Don't even ask! Definitely not worth it! Pleased the developer to issue signs for keeping the silence in the residence area, but unfortunately no luck for that.Show less
