Community Guide: Dubai Creek Harbour

Written by Mustafa Khan
With an ideal mix of innovation and iconic design, Dubai Creek Harbour, an upcoming waterfront project, aims to become the prime location for life, work, and play. 

Conceptualized and developed by Emaar Properties, this iconic project, located on the emblematic Dubai Creek, conveys the future of Dubai while paying tribute to its heritage. Only a 10-minute away from the popular Downtown Dubai area, Dubai Creek Harbour, extending across 550 hectares, will consist of an extensive range of world-class facilities and homes, ranging from a luxurious yacht club to waterfront eco-resorts. It will also feature a multitude of cultural amenities, educational facilities, and healthcare centers. This ‘Global City’ is split into nine inter-connected districts, which are situated around green boulevards and waterfronts, which contain, both, residential and commercial zones. All the districts present a different kind of lifestyle which helps it extend to people of all interests and gives potential residents a more personalized living experience. Some of these incredible residential developments include, but are not limited to, 17 Icon Bay, Creek Rise, and The Grand. Dubai Creek Harbour will create a new community, for the residents of Dubai, for living, leisure and work.

Dubai Creek Tower

Aside from luxury homes and world-class facilities, Dubai Creek Harbour is also home to the Dubai Creek Tower, which is set to overtake the Burj Khalifa and become the worlds’ tallest building. Dubai Creek Tower, designed by world-renowned architect Santiago Calatrava, is expected to be complete by 2020. 
The Dubai Creek Tower will feature numerous observation decks such as The Pinnacle Room and VIP Observation Garden Decks that aim to create an experience reminiscent of one at the legendary ‘Hanging Gardens of Babylon’. These observation decks will provide breathtaking, 360-degree views of the city and beyond. The Tower is in close proximity to the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary which is home to over 67 species of water birds.
Also developed by Emaar, the tower has broken a world record before being fully built. The foundation pile weighed over 36,000 tonnes, which set a record for the most weight carried by a single foundation pile, highlighting the tower’s durability and strength.
