Published August 14th, 2007 - 09:13 GMT

Dubai Festival City launches Marsa Plaza, an exclusive residential tower within Dubai’s latest waterfront lifestyle destination.  Marsa Plaza is already a landmark on Dubai’s urban skyline and its prime downtown waterfront setting offers an ideal home to executives and professionals looking for one of the most prestigious addresses in town.


Marsa Plaza comes on line to meet the growing demand for quality, well positioned resort-styled accommodation for busy people. Richard Polkinghorne, General Manager - Development at Al-Futtaim Group Real Estate said: “We have seen an increase in market demand for superior rental properties, offering luxurious accommodation for executives working in key business districts across Dubai such as the Festival Tower, one of the commercial towers in Dubai Festival City”.


In keeping with the demand mentioned by Polkinghorne for quality, serviced living accommodation, Marsa Plaza offers exclusive one-to-four bedroom apartments, duplexes, triplexes and penthouses with panoramic ‘through views’ overlooking the Creek and downtown Dubai. The tower comprises 510 residences that include 212 fully serviced, extended stay apartments managed by InterContinental Hotels and Resorts Group. An integrated premium set of luxurious amenities will be available to residents including valet parking, maid service, door to door laundry service, airport transfers, 24 hour concierge, room service and secure basement parking.


Every luxury apartment will feature Broad Band Internet connection, access to 1,000 television channels, an unlimited number of telephone lines upon request, free wireless internet in all public areas and access to a fully equipped business centre. 


Marsa Plaza also houses a health club with a 25 metre lane lap pool and a recreational pool. Other on-site facilities include bank outlets, beauty and grooming salons, florists, pharmacies and perfumeries, convenience and grocery stores, all day cafés and bistros with delivery services, a digital printing centre, laundry and dry-cleaning services.


As many more companies seek to set up in Dubai, Marsa Plaza becomes an attractive landmark address - a tranquil waterside retreat yet positioned close to Dubai’s burgeoning down-town business district. “Marsa Plaza is the ideal residential address for frequently travelling corporate personnel,” added Polkinghorne. “It’s situated only 2kms away from Dubai International Airport and it is easily accessible to the rest of Dubai via several key roads including the 13-lane Business Bay Crossing and Garhoud Bridge”.


Dubai Festival city recently introduced a new concept of a retail resort at Festival waterfront centre that brings together a magnificent retail offering unsurpassed selections of restaurants, cafés, a rich entertainment experience, a 12 screen cinema complex, a 100 berth Marina and world renowned hotels all within an architectural masterpiece.


The retail resort promises to be one of Dubai’s most exciting retail, dining and leisure attractions.  Two distinct shopping districts - Festival Waterfront Centre and Festival Power Centre offer an unrivaled selection of international and local retail brands through 550 shops including 25 anchor stores. An eclectic mix of 90 restaurants and cafés, including the largest al fresco gourmet dining in Dubai, provide residents and visitors with an unparalleled experience. 


The shopping centre is connected via the Marina Promenade to three international hotels, an Event Centre and the luxury Mediterranean-styled Festival Marina which will dramatically transform the retail and tourism landscape of Dubai. The Four Seasons Golf Club and two international schools complement the executive and family lifestyles in Dubai Festival City.


Dubai Festival City will ultimately cater to more than 150,000 people living, working and enjoying its vibrant environment. Once the entire development is complete it will be home to more than 70,000 residents occupying 21,000 homes.
