Perspectives of the area

Needing no introduction, Dubai is the cosmopolitan dream of the affluent. The city demonstrates an annual influx of more than 200,000 expats, and this number is bound to grow in the foreseeable future. Today, we will take a look at one of Dubai’s most prominent and prosperous districts, Dubai Marina, located on the waterfront of the world’s second-largest man-made marina.

Established in 2003, Dubai Marina is still in the stage of active development. When this stage is completed, the district will be able to house 120,000 people. Presently, however, its population does not exceed 90,000 — this means that there is still plenty of free space in case you want to join the community.

We have put together this list to introduce you to the best developments in the district and help choose the perfect option that would suit all your needs. There are projects that were completed a decade ago, and ultramodern towers that are yet to be built. Whatever the age, though, one thing unites them all, and that is impeccable comfort of the highest grade.

Our Selection of 
the Best Residencies


The first one on our list is the One JBR residential tower designed by Edge and developed by Dubai Properties Group. The project was launched in 2015 and completed in 2020.  The building is located in Jumeirah Beach Residence, a distinguished and vibrant waterfront community bustling with life. The surrounding complex comprises 40 towers overlooking the Persian Gulf.

One JBR is a high-rise residential building of 46 floors featuring apartments with 2–4 bedrooms, plus penthouses with five bedrooms. Residents who choose to acquire penthouses also gain access to private elevators. All units boast panoramic windows and vast balconies with fantastic views of the sea and Dubai, while the ceilings in the living rooms are 10 feet tall.

The floor area of the apartments starts from 1,600 sq ft, while the largest options exceed 3,200 sq ft. The penthouses are double the size of the largest apartments, measuring 6,700 sq ft.

The tower’s ground floor features a parking area. Each apartment comes with two parking spaces.

The building has an adjacent private beach, thus becoming the only one in the neighborhood with direct access to the seafront. In addition to this, residents can enjoy an on-site gym, a spa, various cafés and restaurants, a barbecue area, and a children’s club.

One JBR’s closest neighbors are the Ritz Carlton and Le Royal Meridien hotels. Dubai Marina, the Walk, and the Beach are all within walking distance from the tower — only 5 min on foot. Other attractions situated in the vicinity of the building include Dubai Marina Mall, Calisthenics Park, Roxy Cinemas, and The XL Dubai Club.

The development has its very own roundabout with access to Sheikh Zayed Road.

Price range: AED 5,500,000 – AED 33,710,000

Cavalli Tower

A 70-story tower designed by LACASA Architects & Engineering Consultants and being currently developed by DAMAC Properties. It was masterminded by Shaun Killa, the architect who conceived the Museum of the Future. Construction works began in May 2022 and are due to be finished by the end of 2025.

DAMAC offers future residents 485 front-facing apartments with 1–5 bedrooms. Each unit will feature magnificent views of Palm Jumeirah, Ain Dubai, the novel Emaar Beachfront and, of course, the Gulf.

The tower bears its name for a good reason. The interior design will be done by Roberto Cavalli, an Italian fashion designer who owns an eponymous haute couture brand. He is a renowned master of tasteful sophistication and exquisite textures, so the residents are sure to revel in the splendor of the décor.
About the tower

According to the plan, the first four levels will be taken up by the lobby. Apartments situated on levels 4–37 will fall into the Luxury category, while levels 38–47 will be reserved for the Upper Luxury-class housing. Above that, there will be spacious penthouses also known as Flying Villas. The building will also boast enhanced privacy; each floor will house only five units. The floor area of the apartments will range from 900 sq ft to 15,500 sq ft.

At the bottom of the tower, there will be a private artificial beach peppered with restaurants, cafés, shops, supermarkets, and entertainment facilities, all being available exclusively to the residents of the building and its neighbors. Yet another fantastic feature — a communal chillout zone with an infinity pool, garden, and live cooking stations at level 58, almost at the top of the tower. Other amenities include terraces, elite diners, and barbecue zones.

The developers also promise a touch of environmental responsibility — all apartments will be equipped with a hydroponic wall to facilitate in-room gardening.

Palm Jumeirah, Skydive Dubai, Emirates Golf Club, Dubai Media City, and two parks are located nearby. The building is 30 minutes away from DXB and 20 minutes away from DWC.

Price range: AED 1,689,000 – AED 69,800,000

Liv Marina

A 45-story residential tower designed by Norr Group Consultants International and developed by LIV. Its construction was launched in June 2021. At the moment of writing, the groundwork stage is 100% complete.

The existing 3D renders of the building promise sleek futuristic design cutting right through Dubai’s skyline with a giant LIV logo encrusted at the very top.

LIV offers studios, apartments with 1–3 bedrooms, and penthouses. The proposed floor area ranges from 500 sq ft to 6,700 sq ft. Each unit will provide its residents with panoramic windows and premium European kitchens.

What makes this development stand out is LIV’s focus on physical and mental well-being: the complex will feature indoor and outdoor yoga studios, a fitness center, a library, and convenient workspaces. Besides, there will be a so-called Residents’ Lounge with a Kitchen Area on a large open island and various entertainment facilities such as a gaming room and a barbecue area, all surrounded by lush gardens.

Like One JBR, the tower is five minutes away from the Walk, the Beach, the Emirates, and Montgomerie Golf Clubs. Its closest neighbors are a wide selection of five-star hotels — for instance, Grosvenor House and Le Royal Meridien. The building is also conveniently located near parks, jogging and cycling tracks.

LIV Marina is 22 minutes away from both DWC and DXB.

Price range: AED 2,600,000 – AED 25,000,000

Marina Gate

A trio of residential and mixed-use towers designed by the Aedas architectural bureau and developed by Select Group. The project was launched in 2014, with Marina I being completed in 2018, Marina II in 2019, and Jumeirah Living Marina Gate in 2020.

The buildings range from 43 to 56 floors in height and contain varying numbers of residencies. Marina I houses 415 units, Marina II — 535 units, Jumeirah Living Marina Gate — 508 units, so a total of 1458 residencies are available. It is worth bearing in mind that the third tower is also a hotel, so some of the apartments are branded and thus not for sale. The offers cover the whole list: there are studios, apartments with 1–5 bedrooms, duplex penthouses, and even villas. The floor area ranges from 540 sq ft to 11,800 sq ft. All three towers are accentuated with contemporary futuristic design and décor.

The buildings are connected by a seven-floor podium that houses waterfront villas and over 50 shops. Walkways for retail outlets and recreation permeate the whole complex, while every tower has its own gym with cutting-edge equipment and a vast temperature-controlled infinity pool. The third tower, Jumeirah Living Marina Gate, also features a tranquil residents’ lounge.

The Marina Gate residents are provided with an exclusive parking area. With Dubai Marina Walk on the doorstep, the complex offers a wide array of public transportation options.

Price range: AED 1,200,000 – AED 45,000,000

Marina Towers

Also known as Emaar 6, this residential complex of 6 buildings was designed by HOC Canada and developed by Emaar Properties. The construction began in 2001 and was completed in 2003, making it one of the older developments on the list.

The 40-story Murjan, 30-story Al Mass, and 23-story Fairooz take their names after precious stones, while the 40-story Mesk, 27-story Al Yass, and 19-story Anbar are named after Arabic fragrances.

The towers are found at the north end of Dubai Marina, virtually facing Sheikh Zayed Road. A 5-minute car drive will take residents to Dubai Harbor, Emirates Hills 2, Dubai Marina Mall, and Skydive Dubai.
