Dubai Creek Harbour : The Evolving City

Dubai Creek Harbour is designed as a place where people can live, work and play in harmony with nature. It offers a waterfront, sedentary living, with enviable features and amenities to its residents and visitors alike. Dubai Creek Harbour can easily be accessible through Creek Bridge connecting Festival City and Bay Bridge connecting Ras Al Khor Road. Another bridge is expected to be released on the third quarter of 2023, which will be connecting DCH to Festival City. Designed by Milwaukee’s celebrated architect Santiago Calatrava, the bridge will be composed of a decorative web of steel depicting traditional Islamic geometric patterns, placed strategically to becoming the Instagram-ready view point of the tallest building in the world.

Speaking of which, Dubai Creek Tower is DCH’s most anticipated project. With an architecture inspired by the naturistic beauty of lily and the ancient elegance of a mosque’s minar, the tower will be built to stand an estimated height of 1350m, beating Burj Khlaifa’s record as the tallest tower in the world by over 500 meters.

Dubai Creek Tower will be a commercial, retail and touristic hub attracting thousands of visitors on a daily basis.

However, the current reality is that Dubai Creek Harbour is a community under construction, with great plans and announcements made for the future. The Creek Tower was a project expected to be completed by 2020. For reasons undisclosed, he construction was halted in may 2018 once the foundation was completed, and since no completion date has been announced yet. However, Emaar along with Santiago Calatrava, world’s most reknown Italian architect, have announced the released of Central bridge by Q3 of 2023 and construction is on steady process.

Most investors take precautionary steps when it comes to developing communities, and only leap in when they see undisputable assurance. But for those who are seasoned in Dubai’s real estate market, they know that one thing is for certain; when Dubai plans, it delivers, more often with results exceeding expectations.

Dubai Creek Harbor offers attractive rates per sq.m. as of now, making it an affordable investment to most investors. With new projects being released in an impressive frequency, more and more opportunities are in favor to those ready to invest. However, since most investors are becoming aware of the futuristic scope of the area, the prices are slowly on the rise. And if you’re someone who wants to invest in DCH, now would be the perfect time. Taking all facts into consideration, Dubai Creek Harbour, even without the added greatness of Creek tower, is undeniably on its way to becoming one of the most popular destinations across Dubai.
