A large-scale mixed-use development Dubai Hills is currently being jointly developed by Emaar Properties and Meraas Holding. It is located adjacent to Al Barsha South and is less than 15 minutes’ drive from Business Bay as well as Dubai Marina.

Dubai Hills is a family-friendly community with numerous amenities catering to its residents, including green spaces, walkways, playgrounds, and several schools located in proximity. Even though its only part completed the community has also been named as one of the best locations in Dubai for renting and buying luxury properties, according to various Dubai Rental Reports.
The development’s popularity among investors has made it an attractive option for families and couples looking for proximity to the city and amenities within the neighbourhood. There are villas that are available to buy or rent within Dubai Hills in various configurations ranging from 3 to 7 bedrooms, offering a wide range of options to choose from.
For those looking for ultimate luxury, the exclusive Dubai Hills Grove and Dubai Hills Views offer a limited number of ultra-luxurious shell and core villas.

With a family-friendly environment and numerous amenities available, it’s no surprise that it is well on its way to becoming one of the most popular communities in Dubai.
Dubai Creek Harbour
Touted as the new centre of Dubai, Dubai Creek Harbour is a large-scale project being developed by two of Dubai’s biggest developers, Emaar Properties and Dubai Holding. This ambitious venture aims to transform the historic creek area of Dubai into a contemporary and vibrant district, boasting world-class amenities, luxurious residential towers, and some of the most high-end hotels found anywhere in the world.
At the centre of this grand project is the Dubai Creek Tower, which is set to become the tallest structure in the world once completed. This awe-inspiring tower was designed by the illustrious Spanish architect, Santiago Calatrava, and is expected to reach a height of over 1,300 meters. It promises to offer stunning panoramic views of Dubai Creek harbor, as well as Downtown Dubai to the west and the Dubai sand dunes to the east. To take full advantage of these views, an observation deck and several food and beverage outlets will be available.
Spanning over six square kilometres, once completed Dubai Creek Harbor will include more than 30,000 residences, primarily consisting of high-end apartments and a limited number of townhouses. In addition, a wide range of amenities and facilities are planned, such as a yacht club, a marina, a retail and dining district, and numerous parks and open spaces. One of the highlights of the development is the Dubai Creek Marina, which can accommodate up to 81 yachts and boats of varying sizes.
In terms of residential real estate Dubai Creek Harbour offers an array of residential options, with most of this form of development focused on the island district and Creek Beach sub-community. These premium areas are synonymous with exceptional amenities and services, including private pools, gyms, and spas, as well as access to some of the finest restaurants and entertainment venues in the city.
Along with luxury properties and record-breaking towers, Dubai Creek Harbour is set to become a cultural hub, with several museums and art galleries planned for the area. The Dubai Creek Museum will exhibit the city’s history and heritage, along with its connection to the creek. Similarly, the Dubai Creek Art District will display works by both local and international artists and bring a sense of culture to the city.
It’s hard to deny this communities position in one of Dubai’s biggest but also most exciting new communities. It’s without a doubt an impressive project that aims to redefine Dubai’s skyline and creek waterfront. With its ambitious vision, innovative design, and world-class amenities, it’s poised to become a much sought-after destination for residents to live and tourists to want to visit.
