The future city of Dubai, the Dubai Creek Harbour is a grand development by Emaar, overlooking the Dubai skyline from its location in Ras Al Khor and incorporating multiple innovative projects that truly envision a bright future for Dubai. This development combines luxury, sustainable living and natural presence on one ground and competes on both regional and global scale when it comes to architectural presence and modernized innovation.
Dubai Creek Harbour is just one of the many leading projects in Dubai Creek, which is fast on taking transformational steps towards establishing itself as a financially sustained and ecologically responsible city. Dubai’s harbour is no stranger to being a centre point of commerce and attraction and a historically known hub of trade, fishing and pearling. The development of the Creek is further accentuating the scale of Dubai’s success and advancement throughout the years.
Dubai Creek Harbour covers a total area of 70 million across the creek and Ras Al Khor wildlife sanctuary. Dubai Creek Harbour will expand the city’s heart, enabling sustainable growth and reconnecting it to its roots while offering a peaceful ambience to its residents as well as breath-taking views all around the vicinity.
Including the most remarkable buildings alongside the Deira side of the Creek are the Deira Twin Towers, Dubai Creek Tower, Sheraton Dubai Creek, National Bank, and Chamber of Commerce. On the other side of Al Maktoum Bridge along Dubai Creek is Dubai Creek Park, one of the largest parks in Dubai.
The creek is also home to the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, comprising an 18-hole tournament golf course, clubhouses, residential development and the Park Hyatt hotel.
The creek's initial inlet into mainland Dubai is along the Deira Corniche and Al Ras areas of eastern Dubai and along the Al Shindagha area of western Dubai. It then progresses south-eastward through the mainland, passing through Port Saeed and Dubai Creek Park. The creek's natural ending is at the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) from its origin at the Persian Gulf. The traditional form of transport between the eastern and western sections of Dubai via the creek was through abras, which continue to operate in Dubai. In addition, the eastern and western sections are linked via four bridges (Al Maktoum Bridge, Al Garhoud Bridge, Business Bay Crossing, and Floating Bridge) and one tunnel (Al Shindagha Tunnel).
