Dubai to build largest marina in region

February 2017

Dubai plans to build a new waterfront destination spread over 20 million sq ft that will boast the largest marina in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.

Called Dubai Harbour, the project is located on King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street, between Jumeirah Beach Residence and Palm Jumeirah. It will be developed by Dubai’s leading holding company Meraas, reported Wam.

The destination will include a 1,400-berth marina as well as a cruise ship port and terminal, a shopping mall covering 3.5 million sq ft, an events arena, luxurious residential buildings, hotels, offices, retail stores, public services, restaurants and cafes and an iconic 135-m high tower featuring a luxury hotel and observation deck, called ‘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 project will be completed in four years once ground has been broken.
