  • Ocean Heights is a supertall residential skyscraper in Dubai Marina developed by DAMAC and designed by Andrew Bromberg of Aedas.

  • The tower stands 310m (1,017ft) tall and has 83 floors and contains more than 519 apartments.

  • When ground works and piling began on site Ocean Heights was to have been a 50-storey building . But when the developer saw taller buildings receiving planning permission in the Marina they began to think taller. DAMAC gave the architect two weeks to produce a 72-floor, 60,000-sq m tower design. Then they said they wanted an 82-floor building rising to 310 metres high, and wanted its design completed in a week because they had already sold apartments off plan.

  • The architect says, “We had to stick with the original sketch design because that is what the developers were selling from and the same foundations because they has started digging. The only thing which could change was the building's height with all the implications of massively increased loadings and extensions to lifts and stairs and services. Fortunately that all turned out to be possible. And we got to understand that everything in Dubai is pre-sold.

  • “The building's apartment layouts are designed to a system of standard four-metre wide modules. Their sides stack up all the way down the building with only the front part of the module changing to produce the exterior twist. This simplified the structural system and reduced the amount of construction materials.

  • “The tower’s front elevation that faces the ocean is clad in glass … [which] comes as insulated panels with a low E-coating that provides shading from the sun. Both insulation and coating reduce the need for mechanical cooling and allow natural daylighting.

  • “The building's twist starts at base on three of the four sides. The fourth side remains constantly orthogonal all the way up. By the fiftieth floor the building has over-topped its neighbours and the effect of the twist is to reduce the size of the elevation facing south-west thus reducing solar gain. Equally importantly, on level 50 and above it brings apartments, which at lower levels faced uninteresting views, round to view the ocean.”

  • The building was topped out on 22 December 2009, and completed for handover at the end of 2010.

Ocean Heights, luxurious but not comfortable anymore
Swimming pool, building location
Building management
The fire alarm jumps in the building daily, morning or late night all days of the week. Guards are not controlling the parking strict enough, so tenants can find unknown cars on their parking and it will remain there for a long time, all guards can do is put a more… note on the glass and offer you to call police yourself if the car remains there for more than a day. Re-painting parking driveway and conducting repair works with elevators regardless of peak hours or comfort of tenants. The building is no longer pet-friendly, pet owners sign-up undertaking letters with the building and forced to use only 1 elevator in this skyscraper ( imagine expectation time). These are all recent events. A year or so ago I wouldn't even think of moving, but now thinking to switch.Show less

Love it
Pool
Lack of parking
I currently live in a 2 bedroom flat above the 40th floor. The value for money is pretty good here in comparison to other buildings in the Marina. The pool and gym are great and the apartments are spacious. Security and maintenance are also great.

Ocean Heights review
View location
Noise level
The tower and location is generally great. The biggest issues are with the high noise level. In the media city facing apartments, even in the upper floors you can hear the concerts very loud. In later time they start going till 2 am even during weekdays. Also the neighbors love more… to party and make a lot of noise. Second issue is that there is no guest parking and even the 2 bedrooms only have one parking bay.Show less

Luxury but prices are too high
Location and View
I can smell what my neighbors are cooking
The building is among the best I have ever lived at in Dubai. But I am paying a lot to have a full sea view for a one bedroom. Security is very high at the building, very helpful for residents, you really feel safe. I keep my doors unlocked often.

Very secure building, security everywhere
Management here is very strict, and forget about guests because they have no where to park and will always get fined

Loving life in Ocean Heights
Location and Finish of building
Traffic and pederstrian walkways
We absolutely love our building, we looked at so many in the Marina but nothing compared to the finishing of the building and apartments to Ocean Heights. It's a beautiful building, great swimming pool and gym and it's conveniently located across the road from the beach, 5 minutes from the more… Marina walk. The only negative is the amount of traffic around the Marina and the fact that there's no where to walk or cross, it is very difficult to go out for walks without the risk of being run over. It will be better soon as the tram constructions finish hopefully. Show less

Swimming pool and Gym
Neighbours
The building is very big and amazing: good quality and maintenance, very big swimming pool where your children can play and enjoy. It is near the Marina walk. The main problem we had was the noise level (construction of other buildings and new tram).

Ocean Heights 3 bedrooms
View and balcony
Size of the bathrooms
Our appartment is quite large, although the bathrooms are really small. The finishing is reasonable, but could be better. The best thing of our apartment is the huge balcony with sea view. Pool and gym are very good. Definitely a good place to live!
