How many people will be living in the Marina cluster at one time? 100,000? 150?
Does anyone know?

There are 763 apartments in the Princess tower and you can multiply that by roughly 4 since most families and people also have maids. so that is up to 3000 people just in that tower.

and its seven towers 300m pluss in the tall block wich each probably has about 500 apartment each, making out for 14000 people all in all and then we haven't even started yet on all of the smaller towers. Between 130m and 250m so about a hundred thousand sounds right. there dont seem to be any official numbers easily accessible. and some other sources do state around hundred thousand.

Only the penthouses have maids rooms. I would say the occupancy of those high rise apartments is typically 2 people on average. Families tend to choose to live in villa developments. Some units will be holiday homes and not used all year round, and a few other vacant between tenants moving in and out.

So all in all 1,500 residents maximum at any one time in Princess.

My guess for the marina is 70% working couples and bachelors, 10% tourists, 10% rich retirees, 8% children, 2% maids. Villa developments would be totally different.

Hey PrincessTower guy, I have a question.
Are you in your apartment near the top of the princess tower now? Because if the tower is topped out, isn't it still U/C on the inside and outside until it's finished? Or do I have it all wrong?

Snagging is in the 60s already.

Facade cleaning is going on right this minute on the sea side, which means completion is soon.
