Dubai-based developers Emaar Properties and Dubai Holding have revealed the masterplan of their new mega development, Dubai Creek Harbour at The Lagoons.
Spread across six million sqm, the development will feature the Dubai Twin Towers, a mixed-use development billed to be the tallest twin towers in the world.
Located close to the Ras Al Khor Bird Sanctuary, Dubai Creek Harbour will also include environmentally sustainable ecosystems, integrated transportation systems and green open parks, the developers said.
It will also include a dedicated retail precinct, pedestrian walkways, cultural amenities, educational facilities, healthcare centres and a range of leisure choices.
All the key components are designed as inter-connected districts, around waterfronts and green boulevards. The waterfront of the project lined by retail, commercial and residential zones will be built around various central parks, a statement said.
Ahmad Bin Byat, CEO of Dubai Holding, said: “Dubai Creek Harbour by The Lagoons is a historic development that aligns with the future goals of our city.”
Along with the main project the developers also unveiled Dubai Creek Residences, a new luxury residential project that will form part of a six-tower cluster within the Island district of the master development.
Set by the waters of the Dubai Creek, the 40-storey tower will have one, two and three-bedrooms spread across between 900 to 2,150 sq ft, and will also feature a bespoke luxury hospitality offering and a yacht club.
Mohamed Alabbar, chairman of Emaar Properties, said: “The Dubai Creek is the cradle of our heritage and the lifeline that steered Dubai’s growth. This project… will create a dynamic city of the future that integrates smart networks, while building on the cultural heritage of our city.”
The launch of Dubai Creek Residences will be held on November 1, 2014 in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, London and Moscow, the companies said.
