Dubai Creek Harbour
Dubai Creek Harbour represents an exciting joint venture between Dubai Holding and Emaar Properties, capitalising on their core strengths to develop a financially viable and ecologically responsible community in which to live, work and play.
Dubai Creek - The Origin of Dubai
Dubai Creek is the cornerstone of Dubai’s heritage. As a natural harbour, the Creek was historically a busy regional hub for trade, fishing and pearling – it was the original lifeline, where Dubai began its expansion into the city we know today. Preserving both the cultural and environmental aspects of the site is at the forefront of the Dubai Creek Harbour development – integrating a smart, green city, whilst building on cultural heritage.
Located next to Ras Al Khor wildlife sanctuary, a home to an abundance of native flora and fauna, Dubai Creek Harbour aims to bring harmony between responsible city living and creating an awareness of sustainable biodiversity.
Dubai Holding owns some of the most extensive land banks in Dubai, and in partnership with Emaar Properties, employs innovative technology to minimise environmental impact, by actively planning, designing and developing the extensive green spaces across 6 million m2 of premium land at Dubai Creek. The development will introduce integrated, sustainable transport connecting people across the community to create a dynamic city of the future.
The first residential destination on the Dubai Creek development, will be Dubai Creek Residences, which will house over 4,000 residents by 2019. The result of meticulous planning by world class architects and landscape artists, the new development is a one-of-a-kid waterfront destination, which will overlook the historic Creek and Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary.
A Mixed-Use Development
Dubai Creek Harbour offers a truly mixed-use development with waterfront eco-resorts, a marina and yacht club, commercial and retail space will all inter-mingle with cultural, leisure and educational amenities, all creating an aspirational mixed-use development for generations to enjoy.
Furthering this mixed-use development, at the heart of Dubai Creek Harbour, is Dubai Square, where technological innovation permeates every aspect of this ‘omnichannel retailing’. Through the extensive retail choices, unique dining concepts and world-class leisure attractions, where customers can shop predominately via mobiles or at a retail store.
A New Icon For Dubai for Expo 2020
Dubai Holding’s joint venture with Emaar Properties will employ innovative technology to build Dubai Creek Harbour - a smart, sustainable mixed-use district of the future.
The centerpiece of the development will be the new cable-tied Dubai Creek Tower designed by the Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava, and is expected to be taller than the Burj Khalifa.
Its architectural design is influenced by local Islamic culture, its form inspired by a budding lily flower. The structure encompasses design excellence, environmental sensitivity and smart technology, and will represent the jewel in Dubai Creek Harbour’s crown, embodying Dubai’s vibrancy, energy and positivity.
Dubai Creek Harbour offers luxury, sustainable living with enviable views of Dubai’s skyline.
