Jewel Of The Creek Overview

Jewel of the Creek is a major development under construction in Deira on the banks of the Creek adjacent to the Dubai Creek Golf Club and near Dubai International Airport.

It is expected to eventually include 17 high-rise blocks around a marina, including apartment blocks, serviced apartment buildings, hotel towers, a convention centre, a marina, shops and restaurants.

Jewel of the Creek is being developed by Dubai International Real Estate and designed by Kling Consult in a joint venture with another German architect, Kieferle & Partner.

The 124,000square metre site lies between Al Maktoum Bridge and the Floating Bridge where oil rigs were once made.

The scheme involves the construction of seventeen buildings including eight apartment buildings, four serviced apartment buildings and several hotels.

There will also be several hundred water chalets, an event centre, 20 restaurants, a shopping mall, 6,000 car parking spaces, and common facilities such as a sports club and a 70-berth marina.

The main entrance to the development will be a via a nine-metre wide tunnel. Up to 6,000 car parks will also feature in the development.

The hotels include a Five-Star and a Four-Star hotel, a Five-Star twin tower Arabian style hotel and a no-frills ‘plug-and-play’ hotel.

The flagship 460-room Roda hotel is scheduled to open in August 2017 as part of Phase 1 together with the four longer stay serviced apartment buildings with a total of 480 suites.

The Three-Star plug-and-play hotel is aimed at guests in their twenties and early-thirties and will feature concepts such as self-service, self-check-in, vending machines, and additional amenities which require the deployment of fewer staff. The 400-key hotel also will also have a pool and a gym, but the concept is to attract young, tech-friendly visitors.

The event centre, dubbed the ‘Dubai Dome’, has been conceived as a multi-purpose facility that can seat up to 3,000 people.

To create a ‘water body’ inside the development water from the Creek was brought inside the project, making Phase 1 into an island. The water has been enclosed as a salted, filtered swimming pool. At 400 metres wide and four metres deep it will be the largest swimming pool in the Middle East

On the Creek side the ‘water body’ will include a 60-berth marina.

Construction Updates

The five towers in Phase 1 were topped out in February 2016. These include the Roda hotel and four towers of serviced apartments, all due to be delivered in August 2017.

Work is already in progress on Phase 2 which includes a 389-room non-alcoholic hotel, a 445-room four-star fashion hotel, the 405-room three-star ‘plug-and-play’ hotel and the Dubai Dome.

This phase will be completed in August 2018 and the final phase, which will include the waterfront chalets, should be complete in the second-half of 2019.

Road Access

In August 2016 it was announced that the Jewel of the Creek project is to include the construction of a pedestrian bridge on Baniyas Road and the intersection between Jebel Ali Lehbab and Qudra streets, as well as a flyover bridge for bicycles.

Jewel Of The Creek History

The project was launched in 2006 by developer Dubai International Real Estate (Dire) who awarded the Habtoor Leighton Group (HLG) a Dh480m contract to build a huge wall to keep the water out and four levels of basements under the creek-side site

Progress stalled during the financial crisis and did not begin to accelerate until 2012.

In May 2014 HLG won the Dh1.45bn main building contract for the project, and in March 2015 Drake & Scull and Habtoor Leighton were jointly awarded a Dh395 million contract to provide mechanical, electrical and plumbing works for the development which is one of Dubai’s largest construction projects.

The total cost of the projects is about Dh8 billion, financed through local banks, and the development is slated for delivery in two phases, in 2017 and 2019.
