Meydan Sobha FZ LLC has announced that District One, Dubai’s marquee development located in Mohammed Bin Rashid City, is making rapid progress with the construction of its Show Village. The Village will act as a unique showcase of the prestigious Meydan Sobha development. Already around 80 percent complete, when finished it will comprise nine show villas, a demonstration of the world-leading Crystal Lagoon feature, extensive landscaping and a bespoke sales center.

“Mohammed Bin Rashid City-District One is poised to become a monumental destination in Dubai, offering a residential development in the heart of the city that is currently unique to anything else in the region. The development also includes various attraction points ranging from parks, man-made beaches and the largest Crystal lagoon in the world to sports fields with cycling tracks, an equestrian club and shopping & dinning promenade with an array of restaurants. With master planning, aesthetic design and build of the highest quality, the show villas’ completion provides customers with the ability to physically experience their future lifestyle in a true and meaningful manner,” said Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, Chairman and CEO of Meydan Group.

District One is an exclusive residential destination situated in a prime location in the heart of Dubai, around 2.9 kilometers from the Burj Khalifa. While the expansive development is just five minutes from the entertainment and financial centers of the city, it will be one of the lowest density residential developments in any international city, with over 65 percent of its 1,100 acres dedicated to open and green space.

Launched by Meydan Sobha, an equally owned joint venture between Meydan Group LLC and Sobha Developers Ltd, the project, which will be delivered in four phases, will be completed in approximately seven years. One of the unique selling propositions of District One will be the world’s biggest manmade lagoon, which is being constructed by globally renowned Crystal Lagoons. The Show Village will also include a portion of the actual lagoon built using the same technology.

District One will also deliver a phenomenal range of features and activities including parks, man made beaches, canals, water sports and also an equestrian club with riding trails. The development will likewise feature a promenade with a wide selection of stores, restaurants, cafes, lively bistros and entertainment options.
