About the project
We would not call City Walk ‘a mall’. The area is more of a community. The developer would describe it as an ‘urban living concept’. City Walk is located on Safa Road between both Al Wasl and Shaikh Zayed road. Talking design, City Walk is a combination of Dubai and Europe with a slight London edge. Work on the first phase of City Walk started back in 2013. However, the project is still a work-in-progress.
As we just said, City Walk is a community. And just like any other community, City Walk has its own residential areas. Imagine your dream lifestyle, City Walk is probably it. The project has 34 five and six stories low-rise buildings. You can find apartments starting from one room, up to four. Elegant, luxury and sophistication is what you find in the residential areas of City Walk.
