Project Overview

Dubai Creek Harbour is one of the oldest established residential areas in Dubai, where locals started businesses like fishing, marine trade and boat-making. And decades after, when Dubai shifted its focus toward modern developments, the area has evolved and grown significantly from a small port to a contemporary residential area and a major commercial hub. 

Spread over 550 hectares, Dubai Creek Harbour is sub-divided into 9 districts and Island District is the first one to be built in the mega-development. The modern development is planned to be an integrated and diverse neighbourhood that promises a lifestyle for residents like no other – full of entertainment options, adventurous activities and lifestyle opportunities. 

The developer has dedicated 7.3 million sq. m. to residential space, 820,000 sq. m. to retail space and 700,000 sq. m. to open green spaces, communal spaces, parks and kids’ play areas. It’s a master development where you cannot just find Dubai’s luxury properties but an abundance of shopping malls, commercial, retail and corporate units, activity spots and endless entertainment round the clock. 

A few developments that are planned so far within Dubai Creek Harbour are:

  • Harbour Views
  • Vida Residences Creek Beach
  • The Cove 
  • Creek Palace 
  • Creekside 18
  • Dubai Creek Residences

Dubai Creek Tower

This spectacular destination is all set to boast a major tourist attraction named Dubai Creek Tower, the world’s tallest structure – dubbed the “Icon of the 21st Century”. It is sure to become the main focal point of Dubai Creek Harbour and beyond. 

Inspired by the fables of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Spanish-Swiss architect Santiago Calatrava Valls has designed this architectural marvel. Upon completion, the tower will serve as one of the world’s tallest observation decks and offer 360-degree views of the neighbourhood and everything around. It will also daily shine a “beacon of light” from its peak at sunset, which symbolises Dubai’s visionary leadership.
