About Marina Gate, Dubai
Dubai Marina is a buzzing tourist destination and a vibrant community with many unrivalled residential properties. Located at the gateway of the world’s largest man-made marina, the aptly named Marina Gate is one of the most prominent real estate projects in Dubai. The complex of Marina Gate features two residential towers and one hotel/serviced apartment tower. The developer behind this project is Select Group, one of the leading real estate development and investment companies in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Launched in 2014, these towers have been divided into three phases.
The first phase involved the construction of the 677 ft. tower Marina Gate 1, which was completed in 2018. The second phase of construction began in 2016 and it involved building the 846 ft. tall Marina Gate 2, which is still under construction. The final of the trio, the 736 ft. Jumeirah Living Marina Gate is in its developmental phase and will be completed by 2020. This upcoming building will be managed by Jumeirah Group International – an international luxury hotel chain - while being under the ownership of Select Group.
With modern interiors to match, the construction involves international-standard architecture that is defined by cutting-edge glass, steel and concrete forms. The architect behind Marina Gate’s iconic design is Aedas. The buildings’ curtain walls/claddings have been provided by Cladtech International LLC (CTI), a renowned façade consultant.
The tri-tower flagship residential project of Marina Gate features an impressive choice of rental and freehold properties such as studios, 1 to 5-bedroom flats, serviced apartments, penthouses and villas. The three towers are connected to each other by walkways through a terraced and an eight-level podium. The mezzanine and ground floors will feature a retail mall with around 50 outlets, a supermarket, salons, a gym and sports facilities.
The podium will also house over 1,400 villas and other tree-lined recreational areas. It faces Arabian Gulf from one side and is bordered by the picturesque marina on the other. Marina Gate is also close to the bridge that connects the mainland with the island development. It can also access one of the recently launched tram stations.
