5 Things to Expect from Marasi Business Bay in The Dubai Canal

One of the projects to look forward with the opening of the Dubai Canal is Marasi Business Bay, a 12-km promenade to be filled with floating restaurants, shops, cafes, and other entertainment options. This will be a 50% waterside walkway longer than the Dubai Marina’s 8-km stretch.

“Marasi Business Bay” is a project by Dubai Holding (under Dubai Properties Group) and will be Dubai’s new landmark that would showcase residential and business on the water. Total cost of this project exceeds a 1 Billion AED.

Marasi Business Bay to Arise in Dubai Canal

The Marasi Business Bay is divided into three major areas – The Park, The Pier and The Yacht Club, solely designed for leisure and entertainment experience. Here are the major highlights of the bay.


1. Five palm tree-lined marinas
Introducing 1,250 berths on an extra-ordinary waterfront lined with five-palm trees. Imagine a busy business district without cars or tall buildings but with the touch of nature – trees, fresh air and the open water canal.

2. Water homes and Business hubs
200 luxurious residential units on the water with boat access plus a bonus of the unparalleled direct canal views. No need to go to Venice to experience this kind of living proposition. Reserving 250,000 square meters of open space for local and international businesses. This can cater as much as 100 shops and outlets in a 16,000 square meter. Let’s not forget the 60,000 square meter PARK.

3. Low-rise vs sky scraper Dubai
Known for sky-scraping affinity, this time, Dubai will show us low rise and sprawling establishments. Don’t worry, they have enough space for all of these facilities.

4. Aquatic lifestyle
If you’re looking down at the city from the sky, the mouth of the Dubai Creek in Deira is being connected by the two sea entrances of the east part of the city to the Jumeirah Sea. This gives easier access in terms transportation between those landmarks. This might call for sea transportation for consideration.

5. The Yacht Club City
Marasi Business Bay’s Yacht Club will astonish us with luxurious and sensational living, dining, shopping experience and any other ways of entertaining through these luxury homes, floating restaurants and cafés, shopping boutiques and a lot more entertainment facilities.
