The Dubai Maritime City will be facing the huge Port Rashid, the former biggest industrial port of Dubai, and is expected to take over most parts of the water-transportation and many more water related activities.
The Dubai Maritime City is a huge complex as we could get used to huge things in Dubai. The complex is set up right by the sea, facing the huge Port Rashid, one of the largest ports in the Middle East that deals with cruise ships and yachts exclusively with its cargo part totally moved to Jebel Ali Port. This was a strategically good decision, as both the Jebel Ali Free Zone supports the Dubai business with its best amenities, together with the Dubai Silicon Oasis, but these complexes due to their nature are not located in the downtown area. The Dubai Maritime City is supposed to be the centre of maritime life.
Dubai Maritime City will consist of the following zones: Maritime Centre, the Industrial Precinct, The Academic Quarter, the Marina District, the Harbour Residence, and the Harbour Offices. Now let us say a few words about each segment in order to get to know more about the whole operation of the Dubai Maritime City.

This will be one of the hugest seaside industrial parts of the whole City. It will contain 42 dry berths, specifically for reparation and manufacturing process. It will host a hundred of warehouses.
Academic Quarter is the centre of the Dubai Maritime City and hosts several academic institutions with targeted academic studying centres inside, offering classes of naval engineering, naval science and other studies.
