District

Meydan One Overview

Meydan One is a newly proposed district in Mohammed Bin Rashid City. It will cover an area of five million square metres and is located on Ras Al Khor Road adjacent to Business Bay.

It was first announced in August 2015 after having received approval from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, the ruler of Dubai.

Not one to miss a press opportunity, Meydan announced that the project will contain five world record-breaking developments including the world's largest indoor ski slope, the world's longest dancing fountains, the world's tallest residential building, the world's highest 360-degree observation deck and the world's highest restaurant.

Meydan One is being developed by the Meydan Group, the government owned company responsible for the existing Meydan Racing Stadium and the surrounding residential developments.

The area is being developed in anticipation of Dubai's rapid population growth and once completed hopes to become home to over 75,000 residents.

The centrepiece of Meydan One will be the 711 metre skyscraper 'Dubai One' which, upon completion, will become the world's tallest residential building. It will house 885 apartments as well as a 350-room 5 star hotel and will be home to both the world's highest 360-degree observation deck at 655m and the world's highest restaurant at 675m.

Coming back down to earth, in February 2016 Meydan Sobha, a joint venture project between Meydan Group and Sobha Group, launched a new residential phase of the District One project.

Phase 3 offers a fresh wave of 4 and 5 bedroom freehold villas built on larger plots than Phases 1 and 2. Both are sold out and their handover will be taking place from mid-2016 with completion by 2017. Phase 3 is set to be handed over in 2018.

Meydan One Amenities

Meydan One features a number of significant developments, namely:

World's Largest Indoor Ski Slope

Meydan One has a strong emphasis on sports and second in the highlight competition comes the 1.2km long indoor ski slope, set to be the longest in the world at almost double the length of the current record holder, the Alpin Center in Germany.

Meydan Arena

At the base of the ski slope will be the Meydan Arena, a 25,000 square metre multi-purpose venue capable of hosting concerts, shows and sporting events. It will seat 8,000 people and offer a range of sports from tennis and basketball to mixed martial arts and lacrosse.

The Meydan Arena will be surrounded by football pitches, mountain biking tracks, walking and running trails and a BMX and skateboard park.

Another Mall for Dubai

Meydan One Mall will contain over 600 shops, 100 restaurants and cafés, and a 21-screen cinema with a food court. However, its main feature will be a 150 x 80 metre retractable roof which can be opened in the winter months to create an alfresco shopping and dining experience.

Meydan Canal

A 4km long canal will flow through the area and open up to a 100-berth marina and yacht club. We imagine that it will be connected to the Dubai Creek at Business Bay.

World's Longest Dancing Fountains

Dancing fountains are a proven tourist magnet made famous at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas and brought to Dubai in grand style by Emaar Properties as part of their Downtown Dubai development. Meydan plans to take it to the next level with their 420 metre long fountains and accompanying laser show choreographed with digital screens.

The fountains will be surrounded by a 60,000 capacity civic plaza which can be used for all kinds of gatherings, celebrations, food festivals and fashion shows. It will have a floating stage and a waterfall, presumably not too close to each other.

Another Beach

To top things off, and this should come as no surprise, a 300 metre beach is also planned despite the area being 7km inland. The beach will face the Crystal Lagoons which will accommodate swimmers, kayaks, paddle boats and have direct access to a new water park and a 14km boardwalk.

Construction Updates

There's no date currently set for the completion of the entire development but the first phase is scheduled to be finished by 2020. This sounds extremely ambitious considering construction work is yet to start and the first phase includes the 711 metre tall tower, the mall, the fountains, the plaza and the canal!

In February 2017 Meydan Group signed a strategic deal with Azizi Developments to build 180 residential and retail units as part of Meydan One. Azizi Developments started the site preparation for the $460 million community project in September 2017.

The first phase comprises 18 mid-rise residential buildings containing 2,273 apartments and a retail district. The second phase will add a further 17 buildings of 2,162 apartments. The apartments, ranging from studios to one- and two-bedroom flats will have views of the Dubai Water Canal, Meydan Hotel and Racecourse, Downtown Dubai and Dubai Creek.

The site preparation process includes soil clearing and testing, site plan designs and environment impact studies, fencing and grading.
