Ruler of Dubai HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum announced the development of ‘Dubai Harbour’, a unique new waterfront destination that will feature the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region’s largest marina. The project will be developed by Meraas Holding and will also contain a 135 metre-high Dubai Lighthouse, a cruise ship port and terminal, a shopping mall, luxurious residential buildings, hotels, offices, retail stores...

The project is 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. The iconic luxury waterfront destination, 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.

HH Sheikh Mohammed said: “We are happy that this new project, which represents a unique and innovative new addition to the region’s tourism landscape, opens up a range of new opportunities to investors. ‘Dubai Harbour’ creates a venue for new investments that support our vision for this important sector and promises to further accelerate the expansion of the tourism industry in the UAE, which is already growing rapidly. I am confident that the project will have a highly positive impact on our entire region’s tourism sector. We are keen to encourage new projects and promote investments that will contribute to bringing to the region more tourists interested in experiencing this part of the world.”

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.
