Dubai Creek Harbour is an immense waterfront development located by the Dubai Creek, a historic facet of the city that is also a very popular tourist destination. Comprising nine interconnected districts, Dubai Creek Harbour will offer an eclectic blend of modern urban living and nature-inspired design that will transform one of its more old-fashioned areas into a vibrant contemporary living destination.
Sustainability will be at the heart of the development, with a road and transport network aimed at minimizing environmental impact along with green initiatives such as man-made groves and open green spaces. Fully integrating its districts with each other, Dubai Creek Harbour will create an innovative living environment that will serve as a template for future community planning around the city.
The beauty of the UAE’s indigenous flora serves as the inspiration for the community, and the lifestyle is tailored toward a harmonious existence with nature while enjoying all the conveniences of the city. Waterfront promenades, yacht marinas and verdant parks will come up alongside premium retail outlets, gourmet restaurants and luxury hotels.
Situated adjacent to the development and at the mouth of the Creek, Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary is one of a handful of urban nature reserves around the world. Home to over 500 species of flora and fauna, it is a popular tourist attraction and is best known for the flocks of flamingos that line its shores during the winter.
Set to dwarf the Burj Khalifa upon completion, the Dubai Creek Tower is the centrepiece of Dubai Creek Harbour and will be the tallest observation tower in the world at a height exceeding 900 meters. The structure has a sleek ultramodern design that draws on the look of a blossoming lily.
Of the nine districts that make up Dubai Creek Harbour, the Island District is expected to be the most popular. Built off the shore of the Creek and connected to it via roadways, this district will house a pier and marina, and will undoubtedly be a hotspot for Dubai’s maritime enthusiasts.
