Dubai Creek Harbour is a six-million-square-meter megacity that is taking shape near Ras Al Khor on Dubai Creek at The Lagoons. 


The masterplan community is the result of a collaboration between two of Dubai’s strongest development companies; Emaar Properties and Dubai Holding. The project goes under the tagline "discover life at the source," and is located close to the famous Ras Al Khor natural reserve.



The Neighbourhood in a nutshell


Launched in 2006, the megacity comes to life through its 14 different buildings, creating a mix of apartments and penthouses that overlook the majestic creek. Through a slew of amenities that inspire you to live, create memories and grow together with family and friends, Dubai Creek Harbour is set to become one of the most attractive destinations in Dubai. With the launch of Creek Tower, Dubai Creek Harbour will become a new hotspot for tourism, with the tower set to be the tallest skyscraper in the world, giving visitors a full view of Dubai’s stunning skyline, through its several observation pods.
