Dubai Marina is a district in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Dubai Marina is an artificial canal city, built along a 3km stretch of Persian Gulf shoreline. When the entire development is complete, it will accommodate more than 120,000 people in residential towers and villas. It is located on Interchange 5 between Jebel Ali Port and the area which hosts Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City, and the American University in Dubai. The first phase of this project has been completed.
In order to create the man-made marina, the developers brought the waters of the Persian Gulf into the site of Dubai marina, creating a new waterfront. There is a large central waterway, excavated from the desert and running the length of the 3km site. More than 12% of the total land area on the site has been given over to this central public space. Although much of this area is occupied by the marina water surface, it also includes almost 8 km of landscaped public walkways.
The tallest block is located on the western side of Dubai Marina, the block is also known as the tallest block of super tall skyscrapers in the world because it contains some of the world’s tallest residential towers, including Princess Tower, which is the tallest residential buildings in the world completed in 2012. The high rise buildings, are mainly clustered into a block, with the majority of the skyscrapers ranges between 250 metres to 300 metres, which includes Infinity Tower, Ocean Heights, Marina Pinnacle, Sulafa Tower, Al Seef Tower, Le Rêve, Marina Crown and few are taller than 350 metres and 400 metres, which includes Elite Residence, 23 Marina, Princess Tower, Dream Dubai Marina, Marina 106, Damac Heights, The Marina Torch, and a super tall Pentominium, which rises to 516 metres, if completed it will become world’s tallest residential building surpassing Princess Tower.
