Who wouldn’t fancy waking up to the stunning view of the sparkling water of the Arabian Sea? If you’re also one of those who want to enjoy breathtaking sea views right from your home, then there can’t be a better choice than living in a waterfront property. Waterfront developments have slowly become the preferred choice within the emirate of Dubai because of the stunning views and idyllic lifestyle they offer.
Initially, the coastline of Dubai was just 70 km long, but over time and through proper planning, now it is more than 300 km long. This has produced a great opportunity for the development of waterfront properties. Moreover, due to the growing popularity of these properties, almost all renowned developers are launching them. With that being said, let’s take a look at some of the most prestigious and sought-after waterfront developments in Dubai:
Blue waters, Jumeirah Beach Residences
This development is a project of Meera’s and located just off the coast in Jumeirah Beach Residences. It’s not only a popular residential community but is also a bustling tourist spot. Bluewater JBR is home to the world’s largest Ferris wheel, Ain Dubai, and has a plethora of other distinctive features.
This development is known for the lavish lifestyle it offers to its residents. There are four swimming pools, a play area, two gyms, basketball courts, private gardens and a separate pool for kids. The development altogether has 10 apartment buildings that nestle super luxurious apartments laced with top-notch amenities. Other than that, there are 17 townhouses and 200+ retail and dining outlets.
The residential towers in Blue waters JBR are mid-rise and contain 1,2-,3 and 4-bedroom glass-fronted apartments that provide stunning views of the coast to their residents.
The Palace Residences is a 5-star waterfront residence located in the upscale area of Dubai Creek Harbor. It is famous for perfectly encapsulating Dubai’s lavish lifestyle in a crafted hotel with 587 apartments featuring 1-to-4-bedroom options.
These residences are the residential apartments that are present right next to the renowned Palace Hotel. These residences are the epitome of luxury popular for the plethora of amenities they are going to offer. All the units of this project are already sold off, but the handover will begin during Q1 of 2024.
Marasi, Business Bay
A mixed-use development in the Business Bay area, the Marasi will be the first-ever yachting location in the region. It is going to have almost 200 waterside residential units and eateries. The development is located right next to the Dubai Water Canal.
The residential units in Marasi are masterfully planned and have an eloquent design. They come with private balcony pools and offer the residents unobstructed water views. They also have boat access, which is another factor that makes this development extra special. The project also has a 12-km long promenade.
There are three major parts of this development; The Yacht Club, The Park and The Marina. The Yacht Club, a prominent part of this development, will include 5 marinas and will have 1250 berths. They are going to be lined with beautiful palm trees that will be adding an element of freshness and serenity to the development. Apart from the residential units, restaurants and berths, the development will have over 100 onshore boutiques along with plenty of entertainment and leisure facilities.
Similarly, the Park will have 16 parks covering an area of nearly 60,000 sq. m. Other than having well-maintained green spaces, there are going to be play areas, an amphitheater, an outdoor cinema and water features.
Experts believe that this development will bring significant changes to the Business Bay area and contribute to its popularity and value once it completes.
Another prestigious upcoming waterfront development worth mentioning here is Stella Maris Dubai. It is near completion as the superstructure of this development is fully complete. The expected handover date for Stella Maris is Q2 2022.
This upcoming 52-storey development is present in the sumptuous area of Dubai Marina. As per its design, it is going to feature different types of residential properties, which includes apartments, villas and penthouses available in various layouts and configurations. However, an extravagant lifestyle isn’t what makes Stella Maris extra special; it’s the fact that it will be the last waterfront development in Dubai Marina.
Besides the exclusiveness and strategic location, this tower also hosts plenty of facilities that residents can handily enjoy. Another feather in its cap will be the convenience of approachability; all the major landmarks of Dubai are just a stone’s throw away from here.
