Uptown Dubai Overview

Uptown Dubai is a new district within the DMCC (Dubai Multi Commodities Centre) free zone, alongside Jumeirah Lakes Towers.

Formerly known as the Burj2020 District, Uptown Dubai has been masterplanned by Wimberly Allison Tong & Goo (WATG), architects responsible for many upmarket hotels and resorts around the world including the Four Seasons Dubai Jumeirah Beach.

The new district will include more than 10 million sq ft of grade A commercial and residential space providing around 3,000 apartments. These and several luxury hotels will be housed in seven towers standing on a seven-level podium. Two of the towers will be super-talls designed by Chicago-based architects Adrian Smith & Gordon Gill.

The podium, 28 metres above ground, will have a two-level central plaza bigger than New York Times Square. Around the plaza will be world class outlets connected to a retail mall below containing over 200 retail and F&B outlets.

Construction works began in September 2017 with Phase 1, comprising two million sq ft of development, due to start by the year end.

Uptown Dubai’s residential properties will be available for off-plan sales in the first quarter of 2018.

Uptown Dubai Amenities

In July 2018 the world's largest jigsaw puzzle by surface area was unveiled in DMCC.

In celebration of the Year of Zayed, the 12,000-piece puzzle features a portrait of Sheikh Zayed, the UAE’s founding father. It covers an area of 6,000 square metres, overtaking the previous title holder which was at the former Kai Tak airport in Hong Kong in November 2002.

The largest jigsaw puzzle in terms of the number of pieces used was completed at the Phu Tho Stadium in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam in September 2011. It consisted of more than 550,000 pieces.
