Dubai Creek Harbour, the six square kilometre mega-development nearly twice the size of Downtown Dubai, will welcome its first residents early next year.
The first residences in Creek Island Dubai, the premier district in Dubai Creek Harbour, are being readied for handover, a statement said.
It added that Creek Island Dubai will bring lavish island living to over 33,500 residents and will deliver a waterfront lifestyle in the heart of the city.
The first homes to be delivered in Creek Island Dubai are in Dubai Creek Residences, a six-tower residential development with only 872 homes.
Nearly 90 per cent of the construction has been completed for handover in the first quarter of 2019 with more than 4,000 residents expected to move in.
Adding to the lifestyle choices for residents, Creek Marina will also be home to the Vida Harbour Point, a 286-room upscale lifestyle hotel similar to harbour hotels in cities such as Singapore and Shanghai, that will also open in 2019.
Creek Marina will also feature yachting facilities, complete with a yacht club, a total of three hotels, a promenade, landscaped pedestrian walkways, and art installations, gourmet restaurants, cafés and entertainment venues.
Meanwhile, work on the other residential developments launched in Creek Island Dubai is progressing as per schedule. These include Creekside 18, with 500 apartments, scheduled for completion in the first half of 2020, with over 40 percent of the construction completed.
Harbour Views with 762 apartments, also to be handed over in the first half of 2020, is over 36 percent completed, while nearly 20 percent construction has been completed on Creek Horizon, featuring 556 apartments due for handover in mid-2020, and The Cove, a low-rise waterfront sanctuary, with only 276 apartments, to be delivered in the first half of 2020.For all the latest business news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
