The Old Town is located adjacent to the Downtown Burj Dubai. Many people consider both the locations the same. However the Old Town is officially the group of lower rise buildings built in the Traditional Arabic style that surround the Downtown Burj Dubai lake and the Palace Hotel.
Across the main Downtown Boulevard, there are also many smart residential buildings that make up the Old Town.
The development is split into the following six different districts: Yansoon, Reehan, Miska, Zaafaran, Zanzabeel, or Kamoon. The buildings range from low-rise three storey apartment buildings to a number of exclusive mid-rise buildings with Penthouses.
