Dubai Marina is a district in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Dubai Marina is an artificial canal city, carved along a two mile (3 km) stretch of Persian Gulf shoreline. When the entire development is complete, it will accommodate more than 120,000 people in residential towers and villas. The first phase of this project has been completed. Dubai Marina was inspired by and designed to model the highly successful Concord Pacific Place development along False Creek in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The Dubai Marina area is also one of the few places in Dubai where people from Western Europe form a majority.
