The Marina Sky Towers was a residential complex under construction in the Dubai Marina area, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The complex would have consisted of two skyscrapers that would have been named Marina Sky Tower 1 and Marina Sky Tower 2.[3] Both buildings would have stood 200 m (660 ft) and would have contained 60 floors for residential use. They would have been joined together by a nine-story podium.[1] Construction began in 2009, but was cancelled.[1]

The project was scaled down from the original proposal, which called for three super-tall skyscrapers with more than 100 floors of residences. Two buildings, Marina Sky Tower 1 and 3, would have stood at 450 m (1,476 ft) with 114 floors.[2][4] Marina Sky Tower 2 would have stood 400 m (1,312 ft) with 104 floors.[5]
