The name in itself is excellent - Design district. I was in my naivety imagining a kind of hot version of Monte Martre, but that was wrong in most aspects. The area which is not much more than a string of office-like high-rises is fairly...More

If you're in Dubai and have some time, go to the design district and join the Van Gogh exhibition which is taking place right now! It's an amazing experience!

Really short drive from the business district, D3 has a very interesting mix of spatial architecture and sculpture that makes for incredible photography.

Located few kms away from Burj Khalifa downtown. It's quiet in the weekday, parties and events on weekends. A place to squeeze your creativity for those who seek calm places to work. Fun installations throughout. Food could be a problem since not many outlets are...More

The Wow factor in this business district resonates through the public walkways between the buildings. There is canopy covered parking aplenty for visitors, a short walk from the office blocks. Creative objects are littered across the concrete paved path, a bench here and there, trees...More
