Construction of Emaar's Creek Horizon development reaches podium level

Located at the Dubai Creek Harbour master development, the Creek Horizon project will also offer individual townhouse opportunities.

Emaar Properties’ Creek Horizon residential project at Dubai Creek Harbour, has now reached ground level.

The project, following the theme of ‘living on an island’, offers a bold ‘destination living experience’ and comprises two towers, rising from a landscaped podium structure. Located at the Dubai Creek Harbour master development, the Creek Horizon project will also offer individual townhouse opportunities and shared leisure amenities, such as a swimming pool, gym and recreation areas, which will help to define a vibrant atmosphere in the residential community.

Emaar appointed leading architecture and engineering consultancy SSH to carry out the design and construction supervision for the Creek Horizon project.


The project’s design encourages an integrated lifestyle development that promises island-style living in Dubai. The scheme is integrated into the district master plan using landscape and place-making to position the development as one of the most desirable in the area.

With construction now at podium level, progress on the residential scheme will accelerate. Once complete, the towers will top out at ground + three-level podium + 39 storeys and ground + three-level podium + 36 stories. The towers’ orientation has been designed to maximise on the available views of the waterfront, harbour and central park within the district while also offering long-distance vista opportunities, including the city skyline and Burj Khalifa views.

Creek Horizon will form part of Dubai Creek Harbour, a new master plan development from Emaar Properties in joint venture with Dubai Holding that is focused on building urban island residences onto the contours of the creek. The architectural forms create a destination within the new district and responds to the views of the Dubai skyline, waterfront, central park and creek beyond.
