Work on the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One project remains on target, with Phase One villas scheduled for a mid-2016 handover, says its developer Meydan Sobha. About 90 per cent of the villa foundations in the first phase have been completed.

Work on the vertical structures as well as infrastructure, including an 8.8-km bicycle and jogging track, is progressing rapidly. Currently, there are more than 4,000 workers on site, with the numbers expected to reach more than 7,000 workers in a few months.

All villas in Phase One have been sold out as are most in Phase Two, says the company, which is now focused on the delivery of homes.

With Phase One villas set to be finished next year, Meydan Sobha says it is committed to delivering a beautifully landscaped and well-appointed community to residents of Phase One.

Commenting on the development’s progress, Mohammed Ahmed bin Abdulaziz Al Shehhi, board member of Meydan Sobha, says: “We are incredibly proud of the progress made so far and the feedback from our customers has been fantastic. With construction hitting targets for both Phase One and Phase Two, we are looking forward to another successful year ahead as we gear up for delivery of the first phase starting in mid-2016.”

The developer has differentiated its new community through a masterplan of more than 60 per cent open and green space among its homes and amenities. Covering 1,100 acres, the spectacular project includes the development of a 7-km stretch of Crystal Lagoons to give residents a beachside lifestyle. The careful planning of District One makes it one of the lowest density residential developments in the world and a truly unique proposition on the Dubai property market.

With three distinct villa styles – Modern Arabic, Mediterranean and Contemporary – ranging from four to eight bedrooms, the development raises the bar for luxurious living and is set to redefine suburban community living in the heart of Dubai, located close to Burj Khalifa and Dubai Mall.

PNC Menon, founder and chairman, Sobha Group, says: “Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One located in the heart of Dubai is the perfect residential getaway, with its range of facilities and community atmosphere. Our main focus, beyond timely delivery, is to employ best-of-breed construction methods and controls to handover the best quality villas in the market.”

A state-of-the-art 31,000-sq-ft sales centre and model homes offers customers a glimpse into their future life surrounded by nature in the heart of Dubai. Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One, the first to be announced within this city, will deliver an impressive range of features and activities including parks, man-made lagoons as well as beaches, water sports and a bicycle trail along with jogging tracks. The development will also feature a promenade with a wide selection of stores, restaurants, cafes, lively bistros and entertainment options.

Meydan Sobha is a joint venture, responsible for developing more than 47 million sq ft of prime freehold land in the heart of Dubai.
