Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum revealed a new mega project in Dubai. Dubai Harbour is the emirate’s new waterfront destination project located on King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street, in the area between Jumeirah Beach Residence and Palm Jumeirah, also known as Mina Al Seyahi.
Developed by Dubai’s leading holding company Meraas, Dubai Harbour spread over 20 million sq. feet, will include a 1400-berth marina as well as a cruise ship port and terminal, a shopping mall covering 3.5 million sq. feet, an events arena, luxurious residential buildings, hotels, offices, retail stores, public services, restaurants and cafes and ‘Dubai Lighthouse’.
The masterplan of the new destination integrates Skydive Dubai, Dubai International Marine Club (DIMC) and Logo Island into a single community. To be developed in phases, the ‘Dubai Harbour’ project will be completed in four years once ground has been broken.
The unique destination, which adds a new dimension to Dubai’s flourishing tourism industry, is set to further enhance Dubai’s position as a leading global hub for maritime tourism. The project will create synergies with some of Dubai’s other iconic projects located in the area including Palm Jumeirah and the upcoming Bluewaters Island project.
‘Dubai Harbour’ is also set to enhance the city’s profile as a magnet for wealth and investment. The project promises to be an attractive destination for GCC yacht owners, who own one-third of the world’s largest superyachts.
‘Dubai Harbour’ will be accessible by land, sea, and air. Additionally, the project will be linked through state of the art infrastructure to Sheikh Zayed Road, Palm Jumeirah, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street and Bluewaters Island.
