Footnotes
The development of Dubai Marina is currently in progess.

Dubai Marina (Arabic: مرسى دبي‎, also called Dubai Marina Arabic: دبي مرينا‎) is a district in the heart of what has become known as "new Dubai" in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Dubai Marina is a canal city, carved along a two mile (3 km) stretch of Persian Gulf shoreline. When the entire development is complete, it will accommodate more than 120,000 people in residential towers and villas.[2] It is located at 25°4′52.86″N 55°8′38.67″E / 25.08135°N 55.144075°E / 25.08135; 55.144075 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. Dubai Marina was inspired by and designed to model the highly successful Concord Pacific Place development along False Creek in Vancouver, BC, Canada.[3]

Development

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. Another key factor in the design of Dubai Marina is a large central waterway, excavated from the desert and running the length of the 3 km site.[2] More than 12% of the total land area on the site has been given over to this central public space.[2] Although much of this area is occupied by the marina water surface, it also includes almost 8 km of landscaped public walkways.[2]

The marina is entirely man-made and has been developed by the real estate development firm Emaar Properties of the United Arab Emirates and designed by HOK Canada.[2] Upon completion, it is claimed to be the world's largest man-made marina. The current largest man-made marina in the world is Marina del Rey in California, USA. Unlike other parts of Dubai, there is a publicly accessible foreshoreway around the marina and some sections of public oceanway along the beach with views to Palm Jumeriah.

Phase I

The first phase of Dubai Marina covers 25 acres (100,000 m2), which includes six freehold apartment buildings (Dubai Marina Towers). The phase I of Dubai Marina cost more than AED 1.2 Billion.[2] Three of the towers are named after precious stones, Al Mass, Fairooz, and Murjan, and the other three are named after Arabic scents, Mesk, Anbar, and Al Yass.

Phase II

The Phase II of Dubai Marina will consist of high rise buildings, which are mainly clustered into a block, known as "Tallest Block in the world" with the majority of the skyscrapers ranges between 250 metres (820 ft) to 300 metres (984 ft), which includes Infinity Tower, Ocean Heights, Marina Pinnacle, Sulafa Tower and few are taller than 350 metres (1,148 ft) meters and 400 metres (1,312 ft), which includes Elite Residence, 23 Marina, Princess Tower, Marina 101, Marina 106, Damac Heights, and a supertall Pentominium, which rises to 516 metres (1,693 ft) meters.

Transportation

Dubai Marina has been connected through the Dubai Metro's red line to the other places of Dubai. Al Sufouh Tramway being constructed along Dubai Marina will serve the residences of Dubai Marina upon its completion in 2011.[4] The Al Sufouh Tram System will service between 180,000 and 220,000 commuters living in or near the Al Sufouh area of Dubai. The route runs between Mall of the Emirates and Dubai Marina.[4]
