Foundations Being Set for Emaar’s Harbour Gate Project

The Harbour Gate residential development by Emaar on Creek Island Dubai in Dubai Creek Harbour, the one-of-its-kind modern master-planned destination located along the historic Dubai Creek in the heart of the city, is making substantial progress on site foundation works.

Located on the eastern side of Creek Island Dubai and accented with waterfront and park views, the project will be a high-rise development consisting of two towers with a connecting podium along with retail and townhouse opportunities.

Emaar appointed leading architecture and engineering consultancy SSH to carry out full design and construction supervision services on Harbour Gate.

With heights of ground + mezzanine + 37-storeys for Tower 1, and ground + Mezzanine + 29 for Tower 2, Harbour Gate has significant opportunities to maximise on its surrounding views. The project will overlook the nearby marina and a central park, as well as benefit from a clear panorama of Dubai Creek Tower, the upcoming icon.

The property is integrated within the Dubai Creek Harbour district and is positioned to become a much sought-after development on completion. Dubai Creek Harbour is a new project by Emaar in a joint venture with Dubai Holding that is focused on building urban island residences onto the contours of the creek.

Acting as a gateway to Creek Island Dubai, the Harbour Gate property will provide an Island lifestyle with an urban twist for its residents, who will be housed in one- two- or three-bedroom units. Private pools, a gym, a children’s area, private parking and a landscaped leisure deck are among the amenities available, in addition to robust retail, and food and beverage components.
