Dubai Lifestyle City is a multi-purpose development project in the Dubailand area of Dubai, United Arab Emirates, covering over 4.15 million square feet. Dubai Lifestyle City at Dubailand was officially inaugurated in January 2006. When completed, the development will have 68 villas and 120 villettes (apartments),[1] golf course, auditorium, theatre, and sports and recreational facilities. The cost of the project is estimated to be Dh 2.4 billion. Construction is continuing as of April 2013.[2]

Designed by the Beverly Hills designer Tony Ashai, Dubai Lifestyle City is envisioned as a Tuscan inspired gated community.[3] The objective of the Dubai Lifestyle City´s developer ETA Star Group is to provide luxurious homes resembling those in Tuscany in Italy.
