Giant man-made trees, real flamingos on your doorstep, and The Tower to rule them all… welcome to Dubai Creek Harbour.
Get the popcorn ready… property giant Emaar has just released a new video of its Dubai Creek Harbour development, and it’s a soft-focused, lens flare-soaked delight.
The aspirational two-minute clip, titled “The Future of Living”, offers a glimpse into what the Dhs3.65 billion suburb will look like. And we like what we see.
We’ve examined this video with the critical eye of a billionaire real estate mogul and identified the neighbourhood’s top five features.
1. More nature than you can shake a selfie stick at
Situated on the banks of the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary, you will count flamingos among your neighbours. You will be surrounded by greenery, with plenty of opportunities to stop and smell the Japanese cherry blossoms.
2. And plenty of man-made marvels, too
What Mother Nature can’t provide, man certainly can. Dubai Creek Harbour seems to have taken a leaf or two out of Singapore’s garden, with what appears to be a grove of giant man-made trees.
3. Not to mention watery wonders
Remember, Emaar are the masters behind the world’s largest choreographed fountain system, so their water show game is strong. The latest footage reveals Dubai Creek Harbour could be home to another H20 triumph.
4. Really comfortable digs
Beautiful homes for beautiful people. We’ve clocked the Burj views, the infinity pool, and the transparent elevators… but we haven’t quite managed to figure out the circular object in this frame (is it a seat for a cat? Or a hanging barbecue?). No doubt, it’s fancy.
5. The world’s *new* tallest building
At 928 metres high, The Tower will form the eye-watering centrepiece of Dubai Creek Harbour – and will knock the Burj Khalifa off its lofty perch to become the tallest building in the world, as this shot not-so-subtly hints.
