Burj Khalifa – Downtown Dubai by alexramat

Downtown Dubai, previously known as Downtown Burj Dubai, is a large-scale, mixed-use complex under development in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is the home of some of the city’s most important landmarks including Burj Khalifa, Dubai Mall and Dubai Fountain.

The complex is situated along Sheikh Zayed Road, across from Al Wasl locality on the Northwest. It is bounded to the South by Business Bay and to the Northeast by Financial Centre Road, which separates it from Zabeel 2 and Trade Center 2. It is connected to the Dubai Metro via the Burj Khalifa/Dubai Mall Metro Station. The First Interchange, which is in its last phases of construction, will guarantee the free flow of traffic to and from the area.

Development is divided into 11 projects. Burj Khalifa, Dubai Fountain, Dubai Mall, Burj Park Island, and The Address Downtown Dubai hotel are at the center of the complex. The Old Town and The Old Town Island are mostly low-rise residential buildings, in addition to three hotels and Souq Al Bahar.

The maginicient church of San Pietro in the small mountain village of Corniglia. Unlike the other villages of Cinque Terre, Corniglia is not directly adjacent to the sea. Instead, it is on the top of a cliff about 100 metres high, surrounded by vineyards and the steep cliff on the sea side.

Thanks for your visit.
