District One Overview

District One is a residential district in Mohammed Bin Rashid City situated between Meydan One and Al Quoz 2.
The AED35 billion project was launched in January 2014 by developer Meydan Sobha. It covers a vast swathe of land measuring 501 hectares (1,240 acres), over 65 percent of which will be devoted to open green space.
The centrepiece is the Crystal Lagoon, the largest man-made lagoon in the world. A seven kilometre stretch of water created with a patent technology that keeps the water looking crystal blue all year long, the lagoon is fringed by 14 kilometres of man-made beaches and surrounded by parkland, waterways and woodlands.

The housing in phases 1 and 2 comprises mansions, villas and apartments.
There are just 18 mansions, available in Contemporary, Modern Arabic or Mediterranean styles. Each three-storey mansion has seven bedrooms plus bedrooms for several maids and drivers.
The villas, of which there are around 1,500, are also available in three styles and have five bedrooms plus bedrooms for one driver and one maid.
The Blue Views are what the developer calls ‘villansions’; bespoke six-plus-bedroom villas with features such as a leisure basement. The villansions are sold as shell and core units that buyers can either invite the developer to help design the interiors or bring in their own designers.
Phase 3 consists of District One Residences, a gated community of up to 70 apartment buildings. They range in height from five to seventeen stories and contain one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments.
The Seagull Point is a G+14 tower inspired by the seagulls that started coming near the Crystal Lagoon. Its community amenities will include a clubhouse, gym, library, children’s area and coffee shop.
