Access to Dubai Harbour will be from King Salman Street, or via a new bridge from Sheikh Zayed Road. Walkers will be able to get there across a pedestrian bridge from Palm Jumeirah’s west crescent.
There will also be public transport links from the monorail system at Palm Jumeirah and a proposed new metro stop at Bluewaters Island.
The scheme is being developed by Meraas and includes a marina with 1,100 berths for yachts, a cruise port with two terminals, apartment buildings, and a signature hotel to be known as Dubai Lighthouse.
The existing Skydive Dubai, Dubai International Marine Club and Logo Island will be incorporated into the new development together with new entertainment and retail spaces, a yacht club, an 875,000 sq ft shopping mall, hotels and residences.
The marina will be the largest in the Middle East, capable of handling 1,400 vessels including larger yachts of up to 85 metres in length.
The 150,000 sq ft cruise liner terminals will be capable of handling 6,000 passengers.
No longer shown on the masterplan, the 135-metre Dubai Lighthouse was to have housed a luxury hotel and an observation deck offering 360 degree views of Palm Jumeirah and Bluewaters with the Ain Dubai Ferris Wheel.
Emaar Properties will build a new hotel to be operated by its Address Hotels + Resorts and a series of high-rise residential apartments on a waterfront site overlooking the Arabian Gulf.
