Emaar will hand over the first homes of Dubai Creek Residences in Q1 2019, with the project currently 90% complete. 

The project is located in Creek Island Dubai, which forms part of mega-project Dubai Creek Harbour. Emaar Properties, in a joint venture with Dubai Holding, is developing Dubai Creek Harbour.

According to a statement, more than 4,000 residents will move into Dubai Creek Residences upon its completion. 

The six-tower residential development will comprise 872 houses, and be the first residential destination in Creek Island Dubai.

Work on all supporting infrastructure is progressing “as per schedule” with easy access from the Ras Al Khor thoroughfare already in place, the developer added.
