Welcome to Maritime City Dubai


The way to the sea - Arabian Gulf

When completed, Dubai Maritime City will be a vibrant mixed use development for the maritime industry, comprising industrial, commercial, residential and leisure facilities housed on a man-made peninsula between Port Rashid and Dubai Dry Docks. As a peninsula development, Dubai Maritime City harnesses the benefits of open sea access for the industrial community, yet creates a mesmerizing living and working environment with breathtaking sea views in a vibrant commercial hub. By offering world-class infrastructure, services and regulations, Dubai Maritime City will create a unique specialized environment that promotes the networking and integration of leading maritime companies in one destination.

Built on 2.27 million square meters of reclaimed land from the Arabian Gulf, Maritime City, Dubai is the world’s first purpose-built maritime center focusing on everything that has to do with all maritime activities and education. This is an enormous project, located near Port Rashid on mainland Dubai.

The sprawling man-made peninsula boasts a new 2,100 m long breakwater and a quay wall that measures 2,980 m. Comprising residential, commercial properties and warehouses, it provides investors free zone amenities. The city, unlike other seaports and developments in the region, offers considerable advantages including a pro-business environment. It is a "one of its kind" establishment, placing warehouses next to maritime Academies, residential condominiums, adjacent offices for domestic and international maritime firms. Dubai Maritime City is to become a maritime hub, integrating diverse sectors of the maritime industry.
