International City Dubai - A Melting Pot of Nations in Dubai
Sunil here to talk about the International City Dubai
The Dubai International City is a country-inspired architecture of residences, business and tourist attractions.
The structure and arrangement of the city depicts that of the carpets of the Middle East, and spreads over an area of 800 hectares.
The studio apartments constructed in the city can accommodate over 60,000 residences.
The Dubai International City is situated in the Al Warsan region of Dubai, opposite to the Dubai Central Fruit and Vegetable Market (I LOVE this place).
The International City Dubai residential districts follow the architecture of Persia, Greece, Spain, Morocco, England, France, Italy, Russia, and China. Aside from this, there are also four core districts in the city namely, the Residential District, Commercial District, Lake District, and the Forbidden City.
The Dragon Mart, one of the most amazing shopping buildings in Dubai which is shaped like a dragon, can be found in the Dubai International City. The budget allotted for this project was $ 23 million at its inception.
The Central District has an area of more than 21 hectares, and was planned to be the center of the International Citys commercial activity. The Central Business District, on the other hand, was planned to be the central hub of development.
Dragon MartAnd if you want to do business with China without even leaving Dubai, then go to the Dragon Mart, which is also located within the International City. You can go inside the main entrance which is shaped like a dragons head, and browse through different items imported from China.
It has 2,000 parking spaces, and houses different showrooms, shopping areas, and restaurants. Because of its uniqueness, though it wasnt meant to be, this place is also serves as a tourist attraction. Only in Dubai an even the grocery stores be so glamorous that tourists visit them as attractions!
The Forbidden CityWho would not be curious enough and resist entering the Forbidden City? This city is a replica of the famous Forbidden City in Beijing, China. It has an area of 240,000 square meters and can accommodate 2,000 cars. The Forbidden City is designed to house various residential structures, retail outlets, museums, and performing courts.
The Lake DistrictThe Lake District surrounds the Al Warsan Lake, which is a natural ecosystem, and home to almost 200 species of birds including some of the most exotic birds found in the Arabian Peninsula and different parts of Asia. It consists of a series of interconnected wetlands set in an arid and rolling desert landscape.
This freshwater lake lies inside the boundaries of International City near the Dubai-Hatta Road. The Al Wasan pools were constructed in the 1990s when excess treated sewage water was pumped from the Al Weer sewage treatment plant into shallow pits which formerly functioned as a quarry to a local construction company. An Environmental Impact Assessment indicated a clean water rich in aquatic species and exhibiting high biological activity.
The Residential DistrictThe Residential District has numerous country themed residential developments and retail outlets, as well as commercial shops, restaurants, medical centers, a post office, police station, and transportation services.
In summary, the International City Dubai is another strategic attempt of the government to further make the tourism of Dubai more spectacular. Even if you dont plan on spending much time here, make sure to get a glimpse of international architecture in the International City when you visit Dubai.
