Work starts on iconic Dh30 billion MBR City Issac John / 29 January 2014 Shaikh Mohammed inaugurates facilities at District One of the futuristic MBR City; 65% of land area to be made up of parks and waterways. Mohammed Bin Rashid (MBR) City, Dubai’s Dh30 billion iconic destination community project, marked the initial phase of its development on Tuesday with the formal opening of a Sales Studio and Model Villas. Shaikh Mohammed and senior officials at the launch of District One of the futuristic MBR City on Tuesday. — Wam His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, inaugurated the facilities at District One of the futuristic MBR City. Shaikh Mohammed unveiled commemorative plaque of the breathtaking urban, mixed-use, leisure and sports development which spans more than 54 million square feet of freehold land adjacent to Meydan City and four kilometres away from Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest structure. District One alone stretches across four million square feet of prime land. The lifestyle destination, comprising 1,500 luxury villas, leisure and retail attraction points, is jointly developed by Meydan Group and renowned India-based developer Sobha Group. Shaikh Mohammed viewed the mega model of the development at the Sales Studio where he was briefed by Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, Meydan Group Chairman and CEO about the mega project set for completion by 2018-2019. Al Tayer said the integrated cityscape of upscale residential communities would feature open and green space of city parkland, waterways, woodlands, water park, the largest crystal lagoon body of water in the world with 7km of stunning lagoons and 14km man-made beaches, alongside retail zones, leisure and sports attractions. Al Tayer said this unique green heart for Dubai would be surrounded by 1,500 premium luxury villas — to be delivered in four phases before Dubai Expo 2020 — “creating without question one of the lowest-density residential environments in any major international city”. Sobha Group’s Chairman PNC Menon said each of the four phases would deliver 375 villas. The first phase will feature a water lagoon and park beside the show village featuring model villas that will serve as a prototype for the residential area. About 65 per cent of the project’s land area will be made up of parks and waterways to give the project a spectacular appeal. Sobha Group, which has been developing and constructing lifestyle destinations, together with Meydan, aims to develop MBR City — District One, into one of the world’s prime residential locations. The project promises to deliver a new, vibrant ‘green’ heart for Dubai, said Menon. After the inauguration of the sales centre, Shaikh Mohammed toured the development and viewed designs of modern Arabic, Mediterranean, contemporary types of four to eight bedroom villas. Shaikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairman of Dubai Civil Aviation Authority and Chairman of Emirates airline and Group, and a number of senior officials, heads of Dubai government departments and members of Sobha team headed by Menon.
