I think, no. Downtown is really far from Marina. It will take at least 20-30 years to build skyscrapers from Marina to Downtown. And I think, it won't be profitable at all.

Who knows, maybe in 2100?

Imagine how would Dubai look like if that came true.

This districts seems to be actually built up for a density at least around 30k to 50k per km^2. I wonder how many people really populate this kind of quarters in Dubai.
