Designed in 2015, The Residences at Marina Gate project is a prestigious residential development that comprises three high-rise towers, two residential and one hotel serviced apartments managed by Jumeirah Group International, all offering stunning views of the Marina and the Arabian Gulf.
It is located at the world’s largest artificial marina – Dubai Marina, which is a vibrant tourist hub and a dynamic neighbourhood with many unique residential towers. The Marina is a bustling waterfront community with a mix of residential, commercial, and entertainment options.
Facing the Arabian Gulf and the Marina, The Residences at Marina Gate enjoys one of the best views within Dubai Marina. The project offers a variety of living options to its residents, including studios, 1-5 bedroom apartments, serviced apartments, penthouses and over 30 villas. The three towers range from 52 to 64 storeys that stand above a cluster of an 8-level podium with retail at lower levels.
The inspiration for the design comes from the sleek and modern aesthetic of Dubai, as well as the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape. The architects aimed to create a sense of openness and connection with the environment, while also ensuring a high level of privacy and exclusivity for the residents.
The silhouette blends in with the urban context, while the materials and lighting create a warm and inviting atmosphere that complements the surrounding landscape. The complex was designed to meet international standards, using advanced glass, steel, and concrete forms, to give a modern and sophisticated look that reflects the beauty of Dubai while incorporating the natural environment. Villas are stacked in a staggered manner to reinforce its linkage with the main tower, formulating one composition. While the height of the podium was utilised to achieve the required parking count.
The 3 towers are connected through passages within an 8-level terraced podium. This podium was designed to serve as a convenient walkway while incorporating commercial elements for residents. With 50 retail outlets, a supermarket, salons, a gym, and sports facilities, the podium promotes healthy living and creates social spaces. Its design optimises waterfront usage by placing retail and villa units at an ideal angle, maximising views and accessibility.
The Residences at Marina Gate, designed in 2015, is a prestigious residential development in Dubai Marina. With three high-rise towers offering stunning views, the project seamlessly blends sleek design with the natural landscape. The interconnected terraced podium enhances convenience and waterfront usage. Each tower boasts luxurious amenities, making it a symbol of luxury living in the vibrant Marina community.
