MARINA PLANNING & DESIGN Left & below: CGI views of Dubai Harbour, a dramatic four-marina lifestyle hub located between Jumeirah Beach Residences and Palm Jumeirah. Creating a new leisure hub on the Dubai waterfront Dubai Harbour, which comprises a 1,068 berth complex split over four separate marinas, a cruise ship terminal, residential towers and unique entertainment venues, is all set to become a key maritime leisure hub and a significant feature of the Dubai waterfront. The project is in build, with a view to completion in time for Dubai’s Expo 2020. Camper & Nicholsons Marinas (C&N) has been involved in the Dubai Harbour project since early 2018, creating and designing the marinas that are key to the development. Located at Mina Seyahi between Jumeirah Beach Residences and Palm Jumeirah, Dubai Harbour covers an area in excess of 459 acres (185ha) and is accessible by land, sea and air. It is being developed by a Meraas and Dubai Holding partnership. A joint venture was established in mid- November last year with D-Marin for marina operations (see World News). C&N has been closely involved in designing all four marinas – Harbour Marina (detailed design contract awarded in May 2018 and delivered in August 2018 – 566 berths); Bay Marina (detailed design package delivered in November 2018 – 192 berths including over 50 berths up to 160m/525ft); Palm View Marina (37 berths) and Cruise Marina (273 berths) where detailed design work continues. The company also embarked on concept work for Meraas back in 2016 for the 192-berth superyacht marina at Port de la Mer - an adjacent upmarket residential neighbourhood - and completed market evaluation, concept designs, costings and a business plan for the project. For C&N, the Dubai Harbour project was not only a highly comprehensive design and planning challenge and its first big venture in the Middle East region but a contract that needed to live up to ambitious expectations. “Dubai Harbour will be an iconic and innovative waterfront development, successfully creating a worldclass maritime facility with the best superyacht marina and cruise terminal in the region that attracts visitors from all over the world,” Luc Khaldoun, senior director of marina projects for Meeras says, adding “combined with an exhilarating and unique entertainment offer, Dubai Harbour will be the new home of experiences, active marine tourism and living in Dubai.” Dan Hughes, chief operating officer at C&N, says the team looked first and foremost at creating “an animated landscape”. This mantra remained strong as progress was made on a comprehensive market assessment and international market positioning strategy, culminating in a concept www.marinaworld.com - January/February 2019 29
