Dubai Properties breaks ground on Marasi Business Bay marina

Dubai Properties has begun work on the new Marasi Business Bay marina with the installation of pontoons.

Launched by Dubai Holding and Dubai Properties Group in May 2016, the AED 1bn mixed-use Marasi Business Bay located in Dubai Water Canal features water homes and floating restaurants.

The project hosts the Park, the Pier and the Marina that will eventually comprise 800 berths in total. Set for completion in Q3 2017, the first phase of the marina will feature 157 berths varying in size from eight metres to 35 metres.

Speaking at the ground breaking ceremony, Abdulla Lahej, Group CEO of Dubai Properties, said: “The new marina at Marasi Business Bay will leverage latest advances in construction and engineering for its on-schedule completion, offering the city a new active urban lifestyle dimension and waterfront destination.”

Marasi Business Bay marina will be constructed using state-of-the-art Seaflex technology, making it one of the few marinas in the country to employ the innovative environmentally friendly mooring solution.

Seaflex provides secure moorings even under the worst weather conditions. The stable and secure self-regulating system elongates and retracts in a smooth, even movement according to the water levels.
