Polypipe’s turnkey unlocks the gate to super-high-rise success
Polypipe’s above ground drainage solution plays a key role in the exciting new flagship development, Marina Gate.
Dubai Marina is soon to be home to the new flagship residential development, Marina Gate. Standing tall at the original gateway to Dubai Marina, this impressive project – which will house 1,200 luxury residential units – will be a stunning addition to the Marina’s already towering skyline.
