Dubai Harbor

Other than being home to the largest building in the world and being a construction playground for all architectural enthusiasts, the Dubai government has announced their plans on creating their newest mega project, Dubai Harbour, which will be developed by Meeras - Dubai's leading holding company.

This magnificent tourism project is going to be spread across 1.8 million squared kilometers and is supposed to hold 1400 berths for yachts, will have a port for cruise ships and a terminal that will be able to accommodate 6000 passengers at a given time according to the ruler of the Emirates, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

The berth marina will increase Dubaiís yacht handling capacity by almost 50 percent from the current 3000 berths in the largest Emirate. It will also increase the holding power to handle larger yachts that are up to 85 meters in length.

The design layout and master-plan of the Harbour fuses DIMC (Dubai International Marine Club), Skydive Dubai, and Logo Island into a single surrounding. The project is set to be developed in different phases and is planned to be completed in a few years, four to be exact, from the moment ground gets broken.

Dubai Harbour is going to be the largest in the Middle East and North America (MENA) region and will contain luxurious residential buildings, offices, stores, public service facilities, restaurants, coffee shops, as well as an events arena. Also, it will be centered by the Dubai Lighthouse.

Dubai Lighthouse will be 135 meters high and will include a hotel and an observation post that will offer a full 360 degree view of the city. It's set to have a solid and smooth facade that can be used as a big screen for various high-resolution projection and light shows.

The ruler of Dubai said that he's confident that the Harbour will create a positive impact on the MENA region's tourism sector and that it has a high potential to accelerate the further expansion of the UAE's tourism industry which is rapidly growing. He also commented on the inspiring Gulf's long time maritime tradition, which has been directly linked to the region's growth and evolution of trade and commerce.

He mentioned as well that the project opens up new horizons for development and that Dubai has has high urges for the tourism sector, which as everyone knows, is one of the main sources of the UAE's income.

The Harbour will be accessible by all forms - land, sea and air. It will be also connected to Sheikh Zayed Road, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street, Palm Jumeirah and Bluewaters Island through its modern infrastructure.

Other than being yet another in a chain of amazing tourism-attracting projects that the UAE has been offering in the past 30 years, the Harbour will offer a large number of employment opportunities and will be a magnet for foreign and domestic investments.
