The Maritime City in Dubai, known popularly as the Dubai Maritime City is a manmade peninsula being built by reclaiming the land surface between Port Rashid and Dubai Drydocks. This peninsula will serve various purposes and is mainly aimed at catering to the maritime community of the country. Though the proposed complex was expected to be completed by 2014, financial crises in the region have delayed its construction. As such, the region is still an up-and-coming area, providing numerous real estate opportunities for purchasers, as well as real estate agents in the region.
Located at a strategic location, the Dubai Maritime City will be a multi-use complex divided into five major sections or zones. These zones include:
- Harbor Offices
- Industrial Precinct
- Dubai Maritime City Campus
- Marina District and Harbor Residences
- The Maritime Center
Each of these zones would serve a specific purpose. For example, the Harbor Offices zone will integrate office spaces for numerous businesses in the region. This zone will overlook the harbour and also provide easy connectivity to the rest of Dubai.
Further, the Industrial Precinct is where all the maritime-related work will be conducted. This region will have services and facilities for ship and yacht repair, docking, maintenance, etc. There would also be workshops and manufacturing units in this region for the same purpose.
Similarly, the Dubai Maritime City Campus is envisioned to be created for a specific purpose. This area would cater to over 1300 students and would support curriculums including maritime engineering, naval science, and so on. In addition to containing a campus where students can gain knowledge, this zone would also contain other buildings like a mosque, a library, a convention centre, a business hotel, and much more.
The Marina District and Harbor Residences would provide a range of services, facilities, and amenities. In addition to residential spaces, the area would also contain restaurants, shopping centres, and entertainment options including activity centres, movie theatres, and much more.
The Maritime Center will be at the heart of the region. This region would contain a plethora of facilities, including multiple towers serving as business hotels and office centres. The idea of this region is to serve as a hub for business, both domestic and international, including international maritime business.
What makes Dubai Maritime City (DMC) even more attractive is its accessibility. The region is strategically located and is within close proximity to the Dubai International Airport, the main highway, also known as the Sheikh Zayed Road, the Jumeirah Beach, Bur Dubai, and provides easy access to the rest of Dubai.
The region is envisioned to be developed in 3 phases, and roughly 40% of the first phase of construction has been completed, which makes it a great time to invest in it. Realtors and potential property purchasers would find abundant profitable opportunities in this region to explore. This up-and-coming region is expected to quickly become the highlight of Dubai’s residential landscape, with residents, workers, businessmen, students, and expats swarming the area for all its offerings.View Properties in Maritime City
