With its characteristic peaceful ambience, wide lanes draped with trees on both sides and the presence of parks and a beach, there is nothing more a resident could ask for in Al Bateen in Abu Dhabi.

The neighborhood, dotted with massive villas in their walled splendor, has seen quite a series of transformations lately—all geared towards providing residents with a better quality of life. There’s Al Bateen Park, a residential project exclusively for UAE nationals. And then there’s Al Marasy.

The latter is a waterfront residential development that is a complete departure from what is commonplace in the area. Instead of villas, Al Marasy offers a wide selection of apartments in low-rise buildings cladded in glass and steel. It is like Abu Dhabi’s answer to Dubai Marina, although on a much smaller scale. The modern structures, built near the Al Bateen harbor, carry strong sustainable features such as glazed façades aimed at cutting down energy consumption.

The spacious units in Al Marasy have equally massive balconies, affording residents spectacular views of the water, the Abu Dhabi skyline at night, and the Emirates Palace and its surroundings. Taking advantage of its proximity to the water, the project integrated into its plan a marina where residents can dock their yachts.

Al Marasy is envisioned to become a self-sustained residential destination where every modern convenience is within easy reach while providing occupants a sense of community. It is equipped with a pool, a gym and a parking space that can accommodate hundreds of cars. Also included in its layout are dining venues, retail shops and grocery stores. Once all the elements have been put in place, Al Marasy will be surrounded with gardens, promenades, water features, lots of outdoor space and a central plaza.

Enjoying a close location to the Corniche, Al Marasy allows residents to walk or cycle their way to the capital’s popular weekend hangout, or to the several parks that line the whole stretch.

All in all, Al Marasy is an ideal address for families and individuals in search of a trendy lifestyle in a not-so-crowded locale.
