New beach district launched at Dubai Creek Harbour project

Units at the first residential offering in the district – Breeze – will available for sale from October 13



A new beach district has been launched in the Dubai Creek Harbour development, which will feature low to mid-rise residences along with lifestyle amenities and a dedicated metro station.

The Creek Beach district will serve as ‘seaside retreat’ with a boardwalk, parks, F&B outlets and sand bar mounds, a statement said.

The first residential offering in the district – Breeze – has also been launched with units available for sale from October 13.

The project will feature one, two and three bedroom residences as well as four-bedroom penthouses offering views of the waterfront canal.

Amenities include two neighbourhood plazas, a private swimming pool, a town centre with retail and F&B offering, a waterfront VIDA Hotel, a gym within a private courtyard, outdoor play areas, barbeque areas, lawns and a shared community room.

The mega Dubai Creek Harbour – being developed by Emaar and Dubai Holding – features over 7.3 million sq m of residential space, nearly 940,000 sq m of retail precincts, 300,000 sq m of commercial space, over 66,000 sq m of cultural space, 700,000 sq m of parks and open spaces, and 24 hotels with 5,800 rooms.

It will feature the Dubai Creek Tower – set to become the tallest tower in Dubai when complete, as well as Dubai Square, a mega ‘tech-driven’ retail project which will offer 8.07 million sq ft of gross floor retail space – nearly double the gross leasable area of Dubai Mall.

Dubai Creek Harbour will also have schools, hospitals and recreational facilities as well as two Dubai Metro links.

When completed, Dubai Creek Harbour will be home to over 200,000 people.

In August, it was announced that the first residential units in the mega-development will be handed over in the first quarter of 2019.

Nearly 90 per cent of the construction has been completed on the Dubai Creek Residences, a six-tower residential development with 872 units located in the Creek Island Dubai community, the developers said.

Creek Marina will also feature retail, dining and leisure venues, yachting facilities including a yacht club, three hotels, a promenade, pedestrian walkways, and art installations.
