Officials from the Dubai Land Department have taken a private VIP tour of the new Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One community.

Sultan Butti bin Mejren, Director General of the Dubai Land Department, and H.E. Engineer Marwan bin Ghalita, CEO of RERA were hosted by Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, Chairman of the Meydan Group, and joined by senior representatives from both government authorities and management of District One, the first residential district in Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City, which has come to life in Dubai.

The delegation toured the 45 million square foot development which comprises villas, mansions and the newly announced District One Residences, a collection of apartments in mid to low rise buildings, all with access to beachfront living due to a unique manmade body of water which flows throughout the community.

Enclosed by glorious green natural surroundings, the community presents one of the lowest density villa and apartment developments in the heart of any international city, and with the first residents moving in earlier this year, it is becoming one of the most sought after residential areas in Dubai.

Sultan Butti bin Mejren, General Manager at Dubai Land Department stated that the new residential district in Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City reflects the sustainable real estate prosperity that is currently taking place in the Emirate. He said: “Whether it’s for living, working or investing, the presence of such projects underlines the sustainable year on year growth of the real estate sector and offers more options for global investors.”

“District One was designed in keeping with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President, Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and is like nowhere else in the world,” said Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, Chairman and CEO, Meydan.  “It has been an honour to show senior representatives from the DLD and RERA the community which has been built here and this is a personal thank you to them from everyone at District One for their help and support in its creation.”

“We are proud to be adding to Dubai’s status as one of the most desirable cities in the world in which to live. We have created a beautiful, luxurious community offering the most central freehold villa and apartment properties in the heart of the city’s centre, overlooking what will become the world’s largest manmade water body.  I’m very proud to have been able to show the unique features of our community first hand today.”

District One brings together a 7km water body, sublime beaches, a 14km boardwalk, sweeping parklands and breath-taking architecture.

The Water Body at District One offers residents exclusive access to swimming, paddle boarding, and other non-motorized aquatic leisure activities.  State-of-the-art environmentally friendly technology keeps the waters crystal clear, adding to the appeal of a feature which industry experts say will overtake golf courses to become the amenity of the future for luxury real estate developments.

The 8.4km District One Cycling and Running Track has become one of the most popular attractions in town for the UAE’s growing number of cyclists and runners since its launch in December 2015.

Two new tunnels have also been added to the track to ensure the safety of all those taking advantage of the free facilities, which are equipped with 386 solar light poles for environmentally friendly and energy efficient light at night.

District One is also situated next to the spectacular Meydan One leisure, commercial, and entertainment destination, Meydan One will host the world’s tallest residential tower, the tallest observation deck, the longest indoor ski slope and the largest dancing fountain as well as the upcoming Meydan One Mall.

The prime location provides an aspirational lifestyle.  Owners are close to all the major routes into the city, providing quick access to the Dubai International Financial Centre, Downtown Dubai, Dubai World Trade Center and Dubai International Airport.  And after work, the world’s finest Racecourse and Grandstand, a 9-hole floodlit golf course, a tennis academy and a 5-star luxury hotel, The Meydan Hotel are just minutes away.
