‘Floating’ villas on way for Marasi

September 2017

Admares, a pioneer of innovative floating construction, said it has completed work on nine luxury ‘floating’ bungalows at its plant in Rauma, Finland, and has started shipping them to the UAE where they will be set up at the Marasi Business Bay development project in Dubai.

Located on the Dubai Water Canal, Marasi Business Bay is poised to become a major future landmark in Dubai.

The development’s main architectural feature will be the homes on water designed and manufactured by Admares. Work on these floating buildings began in October last year, with all of the manufacturing and outfitting being completed in Finland, before transportation by sea to Dubai in the third quarter of 2017, said a company spokesman.

Admares’ scope of work includes development of 10 water homes, two restaurants and an exclusive yacht club, all of which are state-of-the-art floating buildings, he stated.

These unique architectural structures have been designed, managed and manufactured in Finland, ensuring impeccable quality that can be achieved in a purpose-built production facility, he added.

According to him, the production of Phase One of the Marasi Business Bay development is in full swing  in Finland.

The Marasi Business Bay area will include the longest waterfront promenade in the emirates and the UAE’s first-ever homes on water with pedestrian and boat access.
