Cirrus announces launch of Aquarius Gate

Aquarius Gate
Cirrus has announced plans to launch Aquarius Gate, a Dh.3billion mixed-use project at Nakheel's Waterfront Development.

The development will be the first one at the waterfront to house commercial and residential units, apart from also being the first to have an approval for operational trust account from Nakheel, and also the first to gain approval to sell properties from the Dubai Land Department.

Aquarius Gate is a mixed-use development comprising residential and commercial units at Madinat Al Arab, in the heart of Dubai. The beachfront community in the Waterfront will be adjacent to the beaches, a Metro-station, restaurants, shops, parks and other amenities. One side of the development will feature an art wall, which depicts the various Islamic cultures from around the world.

The commercial tower of the development offers panoramic views of the Arabian Gulf and the Palm Jebel Ali from its 29 storeys. The residential tower, on the other hand, offers views across the Marina, the Canal and the Palm Jebel Ali. The residential tower will include single, double and triple bedroom units, apart from townhouses.

Aquarius Gate is the second major development by Cirrus in Dubai. The Celestial Heights in Downtown Jebel Ali was the first. The Waterfront, located along the western shores of Dubai, will transform the 1.4bn square feet of empty desert and sea, into an international community. It will serve an estimated 1.5mn population and will be twice the size of Hong Kong.
