About the Development:

Marking the northern entrance to the towering Dubai Marina community, The Residences at Marina Gate is a triumvirate of residential towers at the original gateway to Dubai Marina. This flagship development will offer stunning, uninterrupted waterfront vistas and invigorate the architectural landscape by creating a spectacular addition to the Dubai Marina skyline.

Every apartment in The Residences at Marina Gate is designed to maximize indoor space with high ceilings and right angles, perfectly balancing the striking, modern vertical lines with inspired interior decoration.

Ground-level retail has been designed to create a lively, active connection with the rest of the community without compromising the privacy and seclusion of the residents. Building access, whether by car, taxi or on foot has been planned to create a seamless yet controlled progression. Iconic podium levels will house a retail colonnade, villas and sports clubs coupled with tree-lined communal spaces and infinity pools that complete the contemporary façade.
