The visionary concept of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai is taking centre stage at the world’s leading annual real estate event in Cannes, France this week.
For the first time, Meydan Group is taking part in MIPIM, which opens today and runs until 16 March at the Palais des Festivals, to underline the range of investment opportunities offered in Dubai, now recognised as the world’s sixth most visited city, according to Euromonitor International’s Top 100 City Destinations, and the best city in the Middle East according to Mercer’s 2017 Quality of Living Survey.
The Group’s upcoming projects include the Meydan One Mall, set to be Dubai’s most innovative retail space, Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One, the premier city-centre lifestyle community of mansions, villas and waterfront apartments set amidst natural surroundings in the 45 million square feet prime freehold development of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum City, and Dubai Water Canal, the ground-breaking development which changed the face and landscape of Dubai.
In one of the most technologically advanced, interactive exhibition stands, spanning 300sqm at the entry to the show, thousands of visitors to Meydan at MIPIM will also learn about the benefits of choosing Dubai for their investment. Touch screens, videos and graphics will tell the story of the development of the emirate into one of the beacons of innovation, creativity and resilience.
Meydan One Mall
The centre point of the much anticipated Meydan One mega development, the Meydan One Mall will be like none before. With more than 600 retail shops, its smart technology and features, including a 100m x 90m retractable skylight, will redefine shopping, leisure and entertainment destinations.
A 400m long Central Canyon will act as just one of the Mall’s main attractions, while the one kilometre indoor ski slope will become the most popular spot for skiing and snowboarding enthusiasts in the region. Visitors to the mall will also be able to walk along a canal and enjoy the crystal lagoon set amidst an idyllic setting with lush, green landscapes surrounding it.
Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One has quickly become one of the most sought after residential areas in Dubai, with mansions, villas and waterfront apartments available for investment. Enclosed by glorious green natural surroundings, the community presents one of the lowest density villa developments in the heart of any international city.
District One brings together a 7km Crystal Lagoon, sublime beaches, a 14km shoreline, sweeping parklands and breath-taking architecture. The Crystal Lagoon 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.
Meydan’s vision began with the completion of the Meydan Racecourse in 2010 and was underlined by the Group’s role in the development of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City, specifically District One, a collection of premium mansions, villas and apartments within the heart of new Dubai. The construction of Meydan One will complete the company’s commitment to helping create the future of Dubai through the development of attractive, family oriented residential and lifestyle projects.
