If you have heard of some of the modern attractions of Dubai, and their main location, the Jumeirah Beach, then you might have also heard the mentioning of this brand-new huge living-area called the Dubai Marina, it is one of the latest huge investments, which has been still under construction, but many of its parts are already operational.
Dubai Marina for the first sight gives us the impression as if we are on another planet. It has currently the highest skyscraper jungle in the whole world! With its skyscrapers reaching 400 metres, it makes an unbelievable spot out of Dubai Marina.
Marines have been harbours long time ago. They used to store and operate small ships from there, creating an all-beautiful sight. Later on, many of them had been bought by a yacht club, in order to store yachts and other smaller ships there, also enabling the whole space getting bigger, first with one house, then with more and more facilities for the members.
Dubai Marina is one of the biggest projects of Dubai. All its original designs have been visualised by a famous Canadian company called Concorde Pacific Place. It included a huge living-area by the sea, with the highest skyscrapers, with several artificial lagoons and gardens situated in-between them. Most of this vision has been already put into reality, and can be visited, with the Dubai metro running along the Jumeirah Beach and Sheikh Zayed Road. However, soon Dubai Marina will also have its own metro, exclusively for the residents of the Dubai Marina.
The constructions of Dubai Marina have started from 2003, and continuously going on ever since. The first phase of the construction included the total transformation of that specific area of the Jumeirah Beach. They also took and filled up a large area from where it has been the sea before, and is making huge waterways to there, where desert had been before. Overall, huge efforts have been made in order to create the Jungle-Lagoon dream according to the plans.
Among the skyscrapers, the most famous ones will even have their own names, such as the Pinnacle or Infinity Tower, Ocean Heights and Sulafa Towers. Some of these are still under construction. The largest of all skyscrapers, not only in Dubai Marina, but also as planned in the whole world will be the one called Pentominium. Seeing its virtual outlook and size, it will be really one fantastic building! As designed, it will reach the unbelievable height of 516 meters! Its other unique feature will be, that it will not only be the highest skyscraper in the world, but also the highest living-area as well, because the whole area of the tower plans to be residential.
