A look at the original masterplan published by the developer at the time of the launch of Dubai Harbour.

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.

Design Stage

Images depicting the initial concept designs for Dubai Harbour.

Projects often go through a number of design revisions as they progress and developers may or may not honour their original plans when it comes to architectural designs, amenities and landscaping. The images below are provided as a means to compare the original plans with the realised development.

Construction History

Developer Meraas Holding will be responsible for the 20 million sq ft project which will be developed in several phases over a period of four years.

In July 2019 construction group ASGC was appointed to build the two main cruise terminal buildings on a 1km quay, as well as service buildings and a central unit building, with all associated fit-out works, external works, and all fixtures, fittings and equipment.
