Dubai Marina

Standard

Dubai Marina is an artificial canal city, carved along a two mile (3 km) stretch of Arabian Gulf shoreline. In order to create the man-made marina, the developers brought the waters of the Arabian 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. More than 12% of the total land area on the site has been given over to this central public space. Although most of this area is occupied by the marina water surface, it also includes almost 8 km of landscaped public walkways.
