Citywalk Dubai

City Walk is the newest addition to Dubai’s shopping and dining scene. The multi-million Dirham project aims to take the outside, inside, and the inside, outside.

City Walk Dubai is a self-contained shopping and dining area that is more of a community rather than a mall. It’s more of a town centre that combines Dubai with chic European fashion and a London edge. Underneath a glass roof, boulevards bordered by high-end franchises such as Karl Lagerfeld, Chantelle, and Ralph Lauren criss-cross in natural light and subtle air-conditioning. Step outside and you’re transported 6,000 kilometres to London, and nearly 150 years back to the age of the Victorians…

While the inside boulevards are nicely finished, it is very obvious that you’re in Dubai, so for something very different – or familiar, if you’re British – you have to go outside-outside. Not only will see a genuine Royal Mail post box, denoted “GR” from the reign of King George VI, and a traditional British red phone box, but acquainted architecture.

The Citywalk apartments dubai buildings have been designed as homages to the late Georgian and Victorian style that gives the UK its famous urban character. One such example is of a Victorian corner building which was once a public house now serving as a restaurant. It’s eerily accurate.

Of course beyond the Bond Street tribute there is an impressive mix of modern art deco, with a supported gantry circling around the top of the central plaza. “Cooling walls” line all sides which means this will still be a pleasant destination in the height of summer.
