UAE’s first-ever water homes mark scenic inaugural cruise along the Dubai Water Canal
Dubai Properties, a leading Dubai-based real estate master developer celebrated the spectacular voyage of the UAE’s first-ever water home as it made its way along the city’s newest attraction – the Dubai Water Canal – to berth at Marasi Business Bay on Monday, 4 September.
Over the coming days, the city will see more homes float into Marasi as Dubai Properties marks the next milestone achievement in transforming the bustling commercial hub of Business Bay into a truly urban lifestyle destination – a spectacle that is undoubtedly Dubai’s most exceptional ‘home delivery’ to date.
Marasi Business Bay, once complete, will not only feature state-of-the-art water homes that come with pools and surrounded by floating restaurants. It will also see the Park, the Pier and the Marina that will eventually comprise 800 berths, stretch along the Dubai Water Canal, making it the region’s first purpose-built yachting hub at the heart of the city.
Revealed by Dubai Properties Group, a member of Dubai Holding, at Cityscape Global 2016, the AED1 billion mixed-use development is well on track to becoming the city’s most sought-after waterfront destination, elevating the larger Business Bay district that was ranked amongst the fifth must-see neighbourhoods in the world by Lonely Planet last month.
The water homes are a considerable turnkey project for Dubai Properties as the developer introduces a real estate innovation that combines centuries of ship building heritage with cutting-edge design that will forever transform waterfront living in the emirate.
