The first buildings in Dubai Marina

Multiplex constructed the extensive Dubai Marina project – a premium quality waterfront development consisting of six residential towers ranging in height from 19 to 40 storeys, housing 1,029 apartments with a combined floor area of approximately 260,000m2.

The original jewels of the marina, three of the towers, are traditionally named after precious stones: Al Mass (31 floors); Fairooz (23 floors); and Murjan (40 floors). The remaining three are named after Arabic scents: Mesk (40 floors); Anbar (19 floors); and Al Yass (27 floors).

Enveloping the towers is a two-storey podium with 64 luxury villas and facilities, including a three-storey fitness centre, a day care centre, children’s external playgrounds, seven swimming pools, 40 retail restaurants, a mosque and extensive landscaping.

The structural frame is concrete and reinforcement steel and the two tallest towers were ‘crowned’ with a 1,100 tonne epoxy-coated structural steel petal.

As the first phase, and first completed buildings in Dubai Marina, this cluster of six has come to symbolise the Dubai Marina precinct.
