The Opera district is a stylish new area in Downtown Dubai that is supposed to boost the event and tourism sectors in Dubai. The aim of the design of the Opera district is being a promotional area for arts, culture and various events. New projects in the Opera District will consist of hotels, luxury residential, and serviced apartments, retail areas, promenade, parks, and other recreational spaces. The eyecatcher of the district is, of course, the Dubai Opera, a concert venue that can host 2.000 visitors. The building, with the design of award-winning architects WS Atkins, is surrounded by a museum, 2 hotels and a plethora of galleries.
The Opera District is located in the heart of Downtown Dubai, just off Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard. The area covers 9 hectares and the height of the 8 towers in the district combined adds up to 2.1 km. One of the main benefits of the Opera District is that it is surrounded by Downtown Dubai. This means that it is surrounded by lakes, fountains and an area with world-famous landmarks such as the Dubai Mall and the Dubai Fountains.
