Dubai Creek Harbour covers six square kilometres, and will be home to The Tower, slated to be the new tallest building in the world when it’s completed.
Ahead of that, though, there’ll be plenty of properties made available around Dubai Creek Harbour, the first of which is Creek Island Dubai, the area’s flagship district. Within that, sitsthe Riviera-style Creek Marina district, which will be open to the public by “early 2019”, Emaar said.
Initially, there’ll be six residential towers containing 872 homes. All will provide panoramic views of Downtown Dubai, according to Emaar.
Once completed, Creek Island Dubai is expected to home 33,500 residents, and contain shops, restaurants and leisure attractions. There’ll also be a yacht club and a promenade, plus a hotel styled on marina-type hotels in Singapore and Shanghai.
The island will be connected to the mainland by three bridges.
On the mainland, near the mangroves of the Ras Al Khor wildlife sanctuary, is where The Tower is being constructed. The centerpiece of Dubai Creek Harbour, foundation work has already begun on the building, with 170,000 cubic metres of soil having been excavated.
