Dubai Creek Harbour announced as new commercial and cultural district

Emaar Properties and Dubai Holding are set to launch a six-tower district known as Dubai Creek Harbour this morning.

The project will house a pair of towers of up to 40 storeys overlooking Dubai Creek offering one-, two- and three-bed apartments, according to Emaar Properties’ website.

The Towers, Tower 1 North and Tower 1 South, will have units ranging in size from 880ft2-2,154ft2 and use stone, wood and other natural materials, according to the site.

The project is being launched simultaneously by Emaar Properties’ chairman Mohamed Alabbar and Dubai Holding CEO Ahmad Bin Byat to a press conference later this morning.

It is being planned on an open site with a masterplan, which is bigger than Downtown Dubai that is also planned to support commercial and cultural developments.
