The Best Buildings in Dubai Creek Harbour for Buying & Renting

10th July 2024buying

When people ask us to recommend a community to move to in Dubai, we always say, “Tell us about your needs, expectations, and lifestyle.” What’s good depends on who’s looking, so the best areas to live in for singles may differ from the best neighborhoods for families.

That said, Dubai Creek Harbour is almost always one of our top recommendations. This master-planned waterfront community is shaping up to be one of the best communities to live in Dubai, so consider checking out Dubai Creek Harbour’s completed buildings and apartments under construction if you are looking for a place to rent or buy in Dubai.


Why Dubai Creek Harbour

Like Dubai Marina, Palm Jumeirah, and Jumeirah Beach Residence (JBR) Dubai Creek Harbour is also a waterfront community built on the banks of Dubai Creek. It is special because it satisfies the same needs and provides the same benefits as the other sought-after waterfront neighborhoods with one significant highlight: Property for sale in Dubai Creek Harbour can give you excellent value for money.

For instance, the money you’ll pay to purchase a two-bedroom apartment in Dubai Marina may be enough to afford you one of the three-bedroom apartments for sale in Dubai Creek Harbour.

You know what the best part is? It’s a stone’s throw away from the Ras Al Khor Wildlife, so you can connect with nature readily and conveniently. The community is also highly accessible through Dubai Creek and the interchange at Ras Al Khor Road and integrated with public transportation – i.e., the Dubai Metro (four stations), taxis, water taxis, and a bus network.

Of course, determining the best buildings to buy an apartment in Dubai Creek Harbour is no easy task, especially since the community spans over 64 million square feet and 55 building developments. Therefore, we list below a few of the best buildings in Dubai Creek Harbour for sale and rent. Check them out. One of them may become your new home in Dubai.


Dubai Creek Harbour: Completed Buildings

There are 22 completed developments in Dubai Creek Harbour. They’re suitable if you need a place to move into or rent out immediately. The following are three of the Dubai Creek Harbour completed buildings we recommend: 


Surf at Creek Beach

Surf at Creek Beach (Surf 1 and Surf 2) is a mid-rise development with seven and nine floors, respectively. It offers a mix of one- to three-bedroom apartments ranging from 689 to 1,345 sq ft.

Surf has a waterfront plaza with a community fountain surrounded by walkways and farmer markets. It’s mere steps from Creek Beach and all it offers, such as beachside recreational activities, restaurants, other entertainment venues, and the Vida Creek Beach Hotel. Creek Marina is five minutes away by foot. If you don’t wish to venture out of the complex, you can get your steps in at Surf’s promenades and green spaces, burn calories at the gym, and enjoy the sun and water at the pool.

Surf at Creek Beach and all the other properties in the Creek Beach residential district – e.g., Breeze, Summer, Vida Residences – are some of the best buildings in Dubai Creek Harbour for rent. Buy a unit and rent it out if you want a good investment.


Harbour Gate

Harbour Gate is a multi-building complex on Creek Island and one of the newest buildings in Dubai Creek Harbour. Its two 35-story, stepped towers (Harbour Gate Tower 1 and Harbour Gate Tower 2) frame the community like a gate. Set off the Dubai Creek Harbour Park and surrounded by mini-parks, Harbour Gate provides its residents with lush green views from their windows and wide open spaces for relaxation and recreation.

Stepping out of the apartment building will take you to a circular boulevard that connects Harbour Gate to the rest of Dubai Creek Harbour. Creek Marina is a few minutes away by foot, and the efficient road network and public transportation system give residents easy access to Downtown Dubai and the rest of the city.

Apartments in Harbour Gate range from one to three bedrooms. Amenities include a swimming pool, gym, a children’s play area, and shops and restaurants nearby.


Creek Gate

Creek Gate is a two-building complex on Creek Island. Dubai Creek Gate Tower 1 has 30 floors, while Dubai Creek Gate Tower 2 has 36. This development has its own gym and pool and is home to premium one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments.

Views of the Burj Khalifa, the under-development Dubai Creek Tower, the Dubai Creek Park, and the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary make Creek Gate special. Creek Marina is a short stroll away, and like all other residential towers on Creek Island, it’s highly accessible and integrated with the rest of Dubai through private and public transportation.


Dubai Creek Harbour: Buildings Under Construction

Residential towers under construction are some of the best buildings in Dubai Creek Harbour for investment. Off-plan properties in Dubai, in particular, offer wealth-building opportunities through capital appreciation.

You may also buy now to get a better deal on a luxury apartment or to acquire property you can eventually turn into a rental. You can expect a robust demand for apartments for rent in Dubai Creek Harbour in the future.

Below are three Dubai Creek Harbour buildings under construction you may want to consider for investment or turn into your future home.


Creek Waters

Creek Waters 1 and Creek Waters 2 are upmarket, high-rise residential towers that will deliver one- to four-bedroom apartment units, three-bedroom townhouses, and five-bedroom duplex penthouses.

Creek Waters will have swimming pools, waterside facilities and activities, restaurants, social meeting areas, and sports and health facilities. With its upscale amenities and views of Dubai Creek and the Dubai skyline, it’s expected to become one of the most desirable addresses on Dubai Creek Harbour’s Creek Island. 

Creek Waters is slated for completion by October 2026.


Lotus at Creek Beach

If you want an apartment on Creek Beach, consider Lotus at Creek Beach. This development is a collection of four mid-rise buildings with one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments. Apartment units will vary in size from 666 to 2,252 sq ft

This property will make an excellent home for your family. It’s close to the 700-meter white sand beach, infinity pool, and beachside activities. The complex has family-friendly amenities, including a community pool, a gym, barbecue facilities, a multipurpose room, a town center, and an outdoor play area.

Once completed, you can expect Lotus at Creek Beach to become one of the best buildings to rent an apartment in Dubai Creek Harbour. Lotus, thus, offers excellent investment prospects.

Lotus at Creek Beach is expected to be completed by September 2025.


Orchid Creek Beach

If you’re searching for a luxury apartment you can buy at great value, purchase off-plan from Orchid Creek Beach. Orchid, a two-building residential complex, is set along the Creek Promenade, which means it will be in the heart of the shopping and dining district.

Choose from one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments with cuts ranging from 666 to 2,012 sq ft. Every unit will be luxuriously finished and have a balcony to appreciate the (under-construction) mega skyscraper, Creek Tower.

It is estimated that Orchid Creek Beach will be completed by September 2025.
