Mina Rashid is a waterfront master community that is being built along Port Rashid, a historic trading port that was recently redeveloped as a cruise terminal and yacht marina. Spread over an area of 6.8 million square feet, Mina Rashid will be split into 7 mixed-use districts and will feature a combination of luxury apartments, hotels, retail outlets and restaurants.
There will also be further additions to the existing marina, as well as a private beach for residents of the community.
Located just off the coastline between the Deira and Bur Dubai districts and at the intersection of the Dubai Creek and the Arabian Gulf, Mina Rashid benefits from an ideal location that allows for excellent connectivity to other key areas of Dubai.
Port Rashid has already made inroads toward becoming a contemporary lifestyle destination with the development of three cruise terminals and the Port Rashid Marina. Mina Rashid will incorporate further additions to the marina, waterfront shopping and dining options and a beach to make this a key area for lovers of sun, sand and sea in Dubai.
Part of the first phase of redevelopment at Port Rashid, Mina Rashid Marina is spread across nearly 140 million sq ft and offers 500 berths capable of docking yachts between 15 and 35 metres in length. Further expansions to the marina will significantly increase the number of berths and will be able to accommodate over 20,000 yachts.
One of the main harbourfront attractions at Port Rashid, Queen Elizabeth 2 is an English cruise ship with a history going back 50 years and was named the world’s longest running cruise liner in 2004. The ship was retired four years after that and has since been permanently docked in Dubai, where it was fully restored and functions as a 13-deck hotel and events destination.
A stunning new retail and leisure destination designed to complement the community’s Riviera lifestyle, Dubai Mall by the Sea will be a one-of-a-kind extension to the existing Dubai Mall. It will feature some of the finest international brands and high-end products, as well as waterfront dining and entertainment.
Mina Rashid will also have a section dedicated to the heritage and history of the UAE with a beautiful museum, as well as art galleries and a theatre. There will also be an interactive exhibit related to the Queen Elizabeth II and other attractions that will provide a historical counterpart to this very modern community.
