Comprising 8 plots (Plots 1 – 2 and Plots 5 – 10), this development is set in an exciting location, blending culture and heritage of the existing souqs with new opportunities presented by the waterfront.

Deira Waterfront Development is flanked by the existing wharfage overlooking the Palm Deira on the north-west and Bur Dubai and Port Rashid to the south west. On the South, Deira Waterfront is adjacent to the existing Gold Souq. This mixed-use program within a centralized location combines residential, retail, offices, vertical storage, hotel/ serviced apartments and green parks – perfect in encouraging a new community for work and relaxation.

This exciting development has become a significant extension to the existing old souq areas, expanding the economic vibrancy seamlessly towards the waterfront. This extension incorporates the existing, breathing new life and creating economic longevity in the form of impactful retail environments to enrich both visitor experience and entrepreneurs’ business returns.

In creating a lively community, the Deira Waterfront Development boasts a combination of round-the-clock activities from retail to residential, small offices and F&B. These focal points for the community will have strong identities, well-connected with open spaces and interwoven with greenery.

Well-connected by existing roads as well as the future transportation hub at Plot 4, Deira Waterfront Development provides a pedestrian-friendly environment, bordered by shady courtyard streets and plazas. Mindful of the importance of preserving heritage and tradition, this development will architecturally reflect Deira’s rich culture and identity while seamlessly blending in modern lines and contemporary style in a ‘modern heritage’ approach. A perfect blend of old-world charm and contemporary luxury.
