To welcome President Xi Jinping to the United Arab Emirates, Emaar Properties will develop the retail district of Dubai Creek Harbour into the Middle East’s largest Chinatown.

Located only 10 minutes from Dubai International Airport, the 3,750-rai mega-project will encompass vibrant lifestyle elements alongside Dubai Creek to offer views of the city’s dramatic skyline, waterfront and Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary.

“The visit of President Xi is historic and will strengthen UAE-China relations,” said Emaar Properties chairman Mohamed Alabbar.

“The development of the new Chinese retail and lifestyle district at Dubai Creek Harbour and Emaar’s expansion into China, in property and hospitality highlight our commitment to the country.”

Emaar will open offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, all cities served by direct daily flights to Dubai on Emirates Airline. The three offices will promote tourism, education, trading and investment between the UAE and China.

Emaar will expand its luxury hotel and serviced-residences brand, Address Hotels + Resorts, to China. Discussions are ongoing to develop and operate Address-branded hotels in key cities, given the familiarity that the brand enjoys among Chinese tourists.

China is the fourth-largest visitor source for Dubai, with Emaar’s hotels among those most-preferred by Chinese visitors.
