Dubai Marina and Infinity Tower - Christmas weekend

View from 24 floors up, of the Dubai Marina ...

Wikipedia ... Dubai Marina (Arabic: مرسى دبي‎, also called Dubai Marina Arabic: دبي مرينا‎) is a district in the heart of what has become known as 'new Dubai', in Dubai.
Dubai Marina is a canal city, carved along a 3 kmstretch of Persian Gulf shoreline. When the entire development is complete it will accommodate more than 120,000 people in residential towers and villas
It is located at 25°4′52.86″N 55°8′38.67″E / 25.08135°N 55.144075°E / 25.08135; 55.144075 on Interchange 5 between Jebel Ali Port and the area which hosts Dubai Internet City, Dubai Media City and the American University in Dubai.
The first phase of this project has been completed. Dubai Marina was inspired by and designed to model the highly successful Concord Pacific Place development along False Creek in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

This is Infinity Tower, a 700 million AED (About 580 million ringgit) 3-year build project by Arabtec. Its described as a 80-storey high residential tower with a dynamic, twisting shape and waterfront views. It is the first structure of its kind and will be the dominant feature on Dubai Marina’s landscape. It will also be the world’s tallest tower to feature a 90-degree twist, with its helix shape revealing a structure that helps shield its interior from the desert sun.

And by night ...
