No, it will not be changed. The plot's name it's not 23Marina, but has the number 23 on it.

No, but the contractor is over stretched and there's a shortage of laborers in Dubai at the moment due to the booming construction industry in India and a massive fall in value of the local Dirham (pegged to USD), compared to the Indian Rupee.
