Dubai-UAE, 02 October 2013: Meydan Sobha FZ LLC, today 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 Show Village, which will act as a unique showcase of the prestigious Meydan Sobha development, is already approximately 80 per cent complete and when finished will comprise nine show villas, a demonstration of the world-leading Crystal Lagoon feature, extensive landscaping and a bespoke sales centre.
District One is an exclusive residential destination situated in a prime location in the heart of Dubai, a mere 2.9 kilometres from the Burj Khalifa. The expansive development is just five minutes from the entertainment and financial centres of the city, but it will be one of the lowest density residential developments in any international city, with over 65 per cent 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.
The nine actual villas in the Show Village will offer buyers a preview of what their future life of luxury will look like as they will be identical in every respect to the homes that residents will be able to buy. 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, and the Show Village will also include a portion of the actual lagoon built using the same technology.
Commenting on the development, Mr. Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, Chairman and CEO of Meydan Group said: “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.” Prospective buyers in District One will have the option of distinct villa styles and a vast array of floor plans, ranging from four to eight bedrooms. The project embodies a lifestyle that blends luxury with natural beauty and nouvelle residential. “With a three-decade-long pedigree of developing and constructing lifestyle destinations, District One will be the jewel in Sobha’s crown,” said Mr. PNC Menon, Founder and Chairman of Sobha Group.
“We expect to complete the nine villas by November. Our partnership with Meydan will enable us to deliver expertise, choice and quality to an entirely new community in the heart of Dubai.” In addition to the stunning villas themselves and the vast lagoon, District One will also deliver a phenomenal range of features and activities including parks, manmade beaches, canals, water sports, and even an equestrian club with riding trails. The development will also feature a promenade with a wide selection of stores, restaurants, cafes, lively bistros and entertainment options.
