Construction is still continuing at the Dubai Marina in the heart of what has become known as new Dubai. "Twenty-three projects are under construction and 11 projects have topped out. Around four to five projects are nearing the handover stages," according to an investor following the progress.
The development is located on Interchange 5 between Jebel Ali Port and the area which hosts Dubai Internet City and Dubai Media City. The project is developed by Emaar Properties while HOK Canada did the master planning.
The first phase of Dubai Marina covers 25 acres, which includes six freehold waterfront apartment towers (Dubai Marina Towers). Phase II of Dubai Marina will consist of 200 high-rise buildings including skyscrapers such as the Pentominium and Ocean Heights. All pictures are courtesy Imre Solt.
