I like it !
Seem every intergrated rather than the radon mixture of towers that are going up there instead !

I prefer it to the current Marina as it crossed SZR and has a very Miami feel about it. At the moment the Marina district and the Islands are segregated and almost complete opposites, no link between the two except the share a common freeway

yep that was one thing i liked and the mixed park lands and bases !
What is there is many quality towers but I feel as though each will be a island to it self with no connction to any one around it naking the area not a true city

Thats Interesting. I STILL thought the waterway was going to go under szr

I think they can simply do that by linking the Marina with Jumairah Lakes and even it will look more nice than the diagram :horse:

Still every then each building will be island with no commom link you all know how strongly i feel about this by now cause I premott it all the time
THis could of been like JBR while huge complex with similar towers it has some eles ( not built yet and it could prove me wrong ) being linked makes the space around used much more common podiums are a great idea and comined with roof top park land on the poduim could control traffic better, Make best use of the out doors and make a real park community despite the tall towers.
I dont know maybe am a dreamer
Still Marina is not done yet and it may work it better than I expect

although you'd get more towers with the new marina, this one is more organized and i think is more appealing overall.

What would have been really cool was if all the waterways of Emirates Living, Jumeirah Islands and Dubai Marina were all inter-connected :cheers1:

I always thought that the ultimate goal was to eventually have water flow from Dubai Marina up to the Creek (silly me). The reason I thought so is that all the developments such as BD, DIFC, JLT, DM etc are going to be built around huge artificial lakes.

I remember sometime back one of my friends was saying that there is a study to extend Dubai Creek utpo Dubai Marina and all the way long towers will be allowed to be built on the sides. :horse:

Feels good not to be the only idiot (j/k). Shaheen, how does your friend know this? Does he work in the Municipality or knows an official there or what?

well i don't think this is possible!!! if there would be an extension the creek has to run through projects that have already been finished down there. i can't imagine!!!

Although i like the current marina, i think this one would have looked much better
July 1st, 2005, 10:32 PM
Diggin up old threads are we;)
But yeah, It looks way more organised that way but we still have no idea what the marina as it is now will look like.

Wow! We get a reply almost after a year! Those were the "Trances" days :(

looks good as well, but the current marina is great imo.
a connection to the other side of SZR would be great though.
July 2nd, 2005, 01:34 AM
Yup would be fantastic if they joined the waters of both Marina and Jumeirah Lakes across SZR.
July 2nd, 2005, 02:30 AM
Not bad, i like it more than the actual one.
July 2nd, 2005, 12:59 PM
not more imo. but good as well.
if they connect JLT and marina there would be more water circulation maybe.
but i doubt this could happen

^ I think it can happen, but wont be the smartest of choices
I remeber reading abt it a year or so back, the municipality have considered it

Another dubai marina design
Dubai Marina Project
The Dubai Marina Ex is a waterfront lifestyle center, envisioned to be the hub of retail and entertainment for the Dubai Marina development, nearby beach hotels, the Dubai Internet/ Media City and the Emirates Hills Community. The Dubai Marina Ex draws a concept vision from the inspiring arrival of migratory birds gradually settling in Dubai. This brings color to the overall plan through exciting components and waterfront destinations such as the “Swan's Crest”, Flamingo Steps, Swan Landing, Seven “floating” restaurants, the “Swan's pond”, and retail wings named after various sea birds in Dubai. Along with a compelling architectural design, the project introduces a unique merchandising concept zoning each retail wing into lifestyle destinations (market, high fashion, active sports, etc.). More than a shopping destination, the Dubai Marina Ex is a LIFESTYLE EXPERIENCE.
Location: Dubai, UAE
Project Type: Mixed-Use Development
Hotel, Residential, Recreational
Services: Design Competition
