City Walk is a vast residential and commercial development offering the people of UAE and all who pass through the ideal place to stay, socialise, shop and dine.
This high-end lifestyle destination combines Dubai’s love of the unconventional with contemporary convenience. Designed by Meraas – the local firm behind Boxpark, Jumeira Bay and The Outlet Village – the development spans an incredible 10 million ft², split into different districts. It is built around the themes of movement, sharing and community.
Visitors can explore a large collection of individual yet interconnected buildings, containing living, shopping, entertainment, hospitality and wellness options over a sprawling area in Al Safa. It has been expanding year-on-year since 2013.
The residential element of City Walk consists of 34 five- and six-storey pavilion buildings, while 300 retail units offer a luxury shopping experience, including Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein and Karl Lagerfeld stores. There are also leisure and entertainment choices such as a bio-dome, a kids’ eduplay attraction and a multiplex cinema. There is also a premium hotel, a landmark mosque, healthcare facilities and, of course, Michelin-quality restaurants.
Outside, some of the world’s most famous urban artists were given total freedom to decorate the walls of City Walk. Passers-by will find a variety of surreal imagery – some cute and quirky, others dark and disturbing.
AluK is extremely proud to have been involved in this development. AluK sliding doors were specified, a 140mm thermally broken sliding system that is also suitable for the realisation of lift and window solutions.
