Do not live here
This is one of the worst buildings I have ever lived in. Very poor and old. Constant issues with the AC and water heater due to the age and not enough maintenance done on the building. My apartment had a huge crack down the wall and a hole under the window where the estate company had taped it to hide the problem.

The building is maintained very well. One of the many advantages of this building is the free chiller, which saved a lot on the power bill. The building location is very convenient without the need to go into the Marina traffic madness, yet it is a walking distance to the Marina beautiful places and restaurants.
Very Poor Maintained Building
The owners do not wish to help and are very rigid. Not worth a buidling to stay in or pay the price. The lifts stop working and Leakage is a lot. No security in house in case of Fire. Parking is dark and Messy
Great if your flat is on the marina side
Well-maintained building, communal areas cleaned regularly. Chiller included in the rent which is good. Security a little over-zealous (need to get a permit if moving in furniture etc). All standard Dubai amenities included (pool with sunbeds, small but normally empty gym, allocated parking). Beach only ten minutes walk away. Overall, would recommend the apartments with a marina view from a highish floor (not so nice on SZR side).
If you don't mind dirt.
I lived there for a year, in that time, the pool cooler broke down, the lifts broke down, the windows let in kilograms of dust and noise... but not much light because they weren't cleaned once. Not once. In a whole year. My parking space was consistently occupied as security were incapable of keeping track of who was coming or going, and at the end of it all, the agency I used disappeared off the face of the earth along with my agent - who has since surfaced and is operating on his site, beware - and my deposit. If you're considering staying there, ask a lot of questions and make sure you get answers.
Living in Machester Tower
The building is clean. Everyday life issues. Reasonably clean. Security guards are a rather supportive in its true sense. Pool is cool but small with life guard. Card access to amenities. Go up b4 11am to find a spot for you tan. Apartments size is average and for a 3 bedroom you would pay 125-135 facing Sh. Zaayed road with side view of Marina from balcony. Lived here for 3 years and no regrets even with kids cause beach is 10 minutes
