Leading developer Emaar is set to launch one of the world’s finest city-harbour getaways, the Creek Marina, in the heart of Creek Island Dubai, the premier residential and leisure district of the 6 sq-km mega development, Dubai Creek Harbour, by year-end.

A joint venture between Emaar and Dubai Holding, the Dubai Creek Harbour features world-class hotels, green parks and gardens, several cultural attractions, canals, lush parklands, landscaped promenades, pedestrian walkways, cycle paths, and city bus routes.

With 81 berths for yachts and superyachts, Creek Marina will celebrate life with a carnival of boats, yachts, and a gravity-defying interactive fountain, said the top Dubai developer.

The one-of-its-kind waterfront destination, Creek Marina will boast spectacular views of the Downtown Dubai skyline as well as Dubai Creek and will be home to elegant residences, sweeping landscaped parkland, gourmet restaurants, cafes and entertainment venues, it stated.

Creek Marina will also be home to the Vida Harbour Point, a 286-room upscale lifestyle hotel similar to harbour hotels in cities such as Singapore and Shanghai, where style meets convenience, and is scheduled to open in 2019, it added.

Emaar said a winding boulevard encircles the Creek Island Dubai offering residents and visitors with a breadth of unparalleled lifestyle choices.

Several construction milestones have been achieved on the various residential developments in Dubai Creek Harbour, it stated. Only 10 minutes from the Dubai International Airport and the iconic Burj Khalifa in Downtown Dubai, Creek Marina is set to open this December, even as preparations are ongoing to welcome the first residents in Dubai Creek Harbour early next year.

At Creek Marina, the residents can explore, dream and discover a new way of life by the very heart and soul of the city, the historic Dubai Creek, the cradle of commerce and culture, said the statement from Emaar.

Creek Marina is also adjacent to the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, a haven for migratory birds including the famous pink flamingos as well as soothing stretches of mangroves, it stated.

"With the monumental Dubai Creek Tower shining bright, and Dubai Square, opening doors to post-modern concepts in retail and leisure, both next-door, Creek Marina offers that perfect complement to a vibrant lifestyle choice that celebrates all good things marine," said a company spokesman.

"Nearly three-fourth of a kilometre long and about a quarter wide, the Creek Marina is billed to be the new Riviera of the Middle East. With its oyster design, a throwback to the city’s rich pearling history, it will serve as a refreshing new leisure destination for visitors to Dubai from all over the world, and residents in Dubai Creek Harbour," he stated.

According to him, the new development will boast a capacity of over 81 single- and double-berths and will feature a dedicated world-class Yacht Club with an impressive array of shopping and dining facilities.

Facilities such as fuelling services, upgraded power outlets and pedestal units will ensure smooth sailing for all throughout the year, he noted. Creek Marina will also offer a dazzling selection of high-end retail, dining and leisure venues. Its vibrant promenade will welcome visitors with palm trees and will feature trendy cafes, high-end restaurants, fashion outlets and street-food vendors too, pampering visitors with choices never-before, he added.

Emaar said the promenade has aesthetically designed shaded resting areas constructed using environment-friendly, sustainable elements. In an elegant double-shell shape, the shelters are designed to provide shade and thermal comfort.

Super-thin and lightweight, these structures have minimal base footprint making them appear to float effortlessly above the ground. They also require minimal maintenance and help reduce energy consumption, it stated.

The Emirati developer said a specially-designed, gravity-defying interactive fountain will delight visitors of all ages, while world-class art installations will charm the trend-setters and connoisseurs of fine living.

Adding to the convenience of the visitors are over 1,500 parking spaces. Further, at the Creek Marina Terminus, with a sculptural viewing deck and three intertwined ring walkways, visitors they can take in fantastic views of the marina and the city skyline framed by Burj Khalifa, it added.
