Stella Maris Tower is a new 53 storey residential tower under construction in Dubai Marina.
The project is being developed by Abu Dhabi-based Bloom Properties.
The building will consist of 279 residential units made up of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments in addition to 4 bedroom duplexes and penthouses. There will be also be townhouses at the podium level.
The townhouses and penthouses will have their own terraces and pools and the penthouses will feature private cinemas.
The building will offer a concierge service, club house, children's room, a spa, gym, pools, lounge area, games room and a multi-purpose hall.
The facade is intended to be lit to depict a 'breaking wave' effect.
The views offered should be particularly good given that the building is surrounded by predominantly low-rise buildings in addition to being in close proximity to the upcoming Bluewaters Island and Dubai Eye wheel development.
The Dubai Marina masterplan had originally designated this plot as a 30 floor building so careful planning was needed to accommodate a structure of nearly double the height.
Construction has started and the foundation works are being undertaken by NSCC International. The project is expected to take 30 months.
