I lived there for a year.Hi moving to Dubai in August and think my accommodation will be in motor city. What is it like to live there? Are there plenty of shops/gyms/beach clubs?!? Thanks
No. All the planned hotels in Motor City have been postponed/cancelled. Nearest hotels would be next to Mall of the Emirates in Al Barsha.Thanks for all the info.
Are there any nice hotels nearby that you can pay to use the pool?

The apartment buildings in Motor City all have communal pools though.
i disagree with some of your comments here..Cons:
- 'district cooling' charges were horrendous; on average AED1500+/month for a 3-bed unit. (Then you had large DEWA bills on top of that.)
- it's still largely a building site, with many stalled/abandoned projects
- it's out in the desert, therefore very dusty
- it's next to the autodrome (= noisy on race weekends)
- quite far from the main areas (25-30 mins drive to Media City; 35-40 mins to DIFC)
- zero nightlife
- difficult to get cabs
It's nowhere near the beach, so no beach clubs.
Hope this helps.
Very objective answer throughout, so curious as to why you rate it higher than the Greens.definitely a highly recommended place.. i have lived in discovery, sports city, and have friends in greens.. and i rate this community to be the best of all especially if u r looking for an apt.
there are multiple reasons actually..Very objective answer throughout, so curious as to why you rate it higher than the Greens.
I would advise u to get ur AC serviced asap in order to find out if everything is fine and chilled water flow is coming at the right levels.. also get ur emicool metre checked via emicool staff and ask them to show u the flow reading and the temperature of chilled water.. in my case, the flow was very high which resulted in metre running very fast.. after a lot of blame game between emicool/multiplex.. we were able to identify the issue which was in cartridges whihc control the flow of chilled water.. as soon as i got them replaced with the right sized ones, the water flow normalized.I am a little concerned about the comments about Emicool though, first about the cost, but moreso about the fact that with it on full ALL DAY, the minimum temp that I seem to be able to get down to is 24 degrees. What it will be like in August I am not looking forward to find out.
Is that normal or do I need to get an urgent and very full service of the AC unit in my apartment?
Yes multiplex has rightfuly said that they are not going to perform any new jobs because as per the circular we received, their contract was to expire end of May.Suggested Multiplex. When I called them, they wouldn't do it because they were in the last week or so of their contract.
Presumably I should get the new FM company to come and service the units and at the same time I can ask them to check all of the other things that you have mentioned.
That's really kind & sociable, thanks.
I was thinking of venturing over to the Polo Club sometime over this weekend. When would you suggest? Luchtime or evening from Thursday evening through to Saturday evening?
