Marasy, Arabic for Harbour, is a luxurious waterfront residential
apartment development in the Al Bateen harbour in Abu Dhabi.
Marasy sets the standard for luxurious urban waterfront living with a string of low rise buildings adorning the western part of the island’s coastline. The residential project delivers the best of contemporary design in elegantly glazed buildings. An exciting waterfront opens to distant vistas on the Arabian channel, the Emirates Palace, Coconut Island, the city skyline in addition to more intimate views of the site’s own marinas and alcoves.
As one of the city’s most sought after residential neighborhoods in
the capital city, Al Bateen is celebrated as one of the city’s main
fishing harbours which still enjoys a strong maritime identity. Al Bateen’s maritime traditions continue to thrive in the protected
waterfront landscape located on the Bateen channel, between the Abu Dhabi mainland and Coconut Island.
The Marasy development will transform the area into a stylish and energetic urban waterfront district with a bustling social landscape of promenades, cafes and marinas for residents’ yachts and boats; a large swimming pool will round off the list of amenities reserved to the residents.
The complex will be surrounded by a beautiful garden decorated with waterfront art, sculptures and fountains. The area offers public spaces for outdoor relaxation and social activities, and will include a central plaza as “town center” supported by stores and cafes located around the development.
