As the city’s natural harbour, Dubai Creek was the epicentre of Dubai trade, fishing and pearling. Focusing on the city’s source of livelihood and culture, Dubai Holding joined forces with Emaar for the Dubai Creek Harbour. Harnessing the historical and environmental aspects of Dubai Creek, they formulated a masterplan for a smart yet green city, while keeping its heritage radiant and secure.
Located next to Ras Al Khor’s national wildlife sanctuary, Dubai Creek Harbour is a 6-million-sq-m, mixed-use development with waterfront eco-resorts, a marina and yacht club, commercial and retail space, blending well with cultural, leisure and educational amenities. It will also create a sustainable transport system for community dwellers to commute to the city.
Dubai Creek Harbour will boast a new skyline icon, The Tower, planned to be the world’s tallest architectural design. Its form is inspired by a budding lily flower, influenced by local Islamic culture. It will have rotating balconies and observation decks and a hotel.
Launched in 2006, Dubai Creek Harbour will be twice the size of Downtown Dubai when completed.
Completion date: 2025
Number of units: approximately 3,035 apartments
Type of units: residential apartment units, retail shops and cultural amenities
