Dubai Creek Harbour has announced that it will start welcoming its first residents early next year, with the first homes to be delivered in Creek Island Dubai.
The Dubai Creek Residences is a six-tower residential development with only 872 homes. All six towers feature panoramas over Dubai Creek Harbour and Downtown Dubai on the opposite side of the Dubai Creek. Nearly 90 percent of the construction has been completed for hand over in the first quarter of 2019.
More than 4,000 residents will soon be able to move into their new address. Work on all supporting infrastructure is progressing as per schedule with easy access from the Ras Al Khor thoroughfare already in place.
Creek Island Dubai is a waterfront destination that will bring island living to over 33,500 residents. Set against the backdrop of Dubai's skyline and the historic creek, Creek Island Dubai is only 10 minutes from the Dubai International Airport and the Burj Khalifa, as well as overlooking the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, home to mangroves and migratory birds including pink flamingos.
Creek Island Dubai will also be connected to the mainland by no less than three bridges for connectivity and mobility. Creek Marina will also be home to the Vida Harbour Point, a 286-room upscale lifestyle hotel similar to harbor hotels in cities such as Singapore and Shanghai, that will also open in 2019.
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 of the 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.
Other upcoming residential developments in Creek Island Dubai are Creek Gate (490 apartments); Creek Rise (543 apartments) and Harbour Gate (505 homes). Construction is progressing on these too, with about 15 percent construction complete, milestones being set as scheduled and hand over throughout 2020. There is significant progress in the construction of the Dubai Creek Tower too. In May this year, the concrete placement for the tower's pile cap was completed two months ahead of schedule.
