Dubai’s latest luxury development, Dubai Creek Harbour has finally broken ground, and Emaar, the developer appropriately describes it as an “inimitable heaven”, and we couldn’t agree more! Here are our reasons why:

1. Location

Only 10 minutes by car to Downtown Dubai and the Dubai airport, Dubai Creek Harbour is well-positioned so its residents have easy access to the city’s greatest attractions. In addition to this, it sits off the shores of the Ras Al Khor wildlife park, which is home to over 450 animal species, including the stunning pink flamingos. Imagine waking up every morning to idyllic views of this untouched sanctuary!

2. Marina Living

A typical weekend could include a trip to the Marina yacht club for a day spent boating, sunbathing or even lunch with a stunning view! It will undoubtedly be home to Dubai’s marine enthusiasts, as it features a pier and a marina connected to the mainland via roadways. Furthermore, the marina promenade is flanked by gourmet restaurants, boulevards and piazzas; designed so that you can enjoy the UAE’s indigenous flora and fauna along with all the convenience offered by the city!

3. City Within A City Concept

Dubai Creek Harbour is made up of nine districts that appropriately embody its environment, and is in complete harmony with the surrounding wildlife. Creek Rise, Creekside 18, Creek Gate and Creek Horizon are some of the concepts that house apartments, luxury 1,2,3-bedroom penthouses, villas and plenty of recreational open space. It also comes fully equipped with a transportation system that lead to and out of Creek Harbour.

4. Spectacular Architecture

The maritime community will feature a new tower, Dubai Creek tower, designed by famed Spanish architect, Santiago Calatrava, which is set to be the tallest tower in Dubai at 928m high. Inspired by Arabian minarets and the lily flower, it will dominate Dubai’s growing skyline and reposition the city’s status as the leader in innovative architecture. In addition to breaking records, it will also feature the highest elevated garden, from where you can get breathtaking views of the Ras Al Khor wildlife sanctuary and the coastline beyond.

5. Retail


Dubai Creek Tower will be connected to Dubai square, a “tech-driven” retail project, that is nearly 8.07 sq.m, almost double the area of Dubai mall! This is roughly equivalent to 100 football pitches, but the size doesn’t define the magnitude of this project. Inspired by world-class shopping avenues like Los Angeles’ Beverly Hills, London’s Oxford Street and Sienna squares, visitors will not just shop and dine, they will be completely immersed in a world of VR, entertainment, futuristic art and interaction. It is certainly touted to be the next retail destination to cater to your every need - and more.

With over 730,000 sq.m of serviced apartments and 7,300,000 sq.m of residential units in Dubai Creek Harbour, you can take your pick from our extensive database, and our agents will get in touch with you.
