The Meydan Group has announced two major new projects yesterday at Cityscape Global: Mohamed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City District Eleven and Meydan Avenue, two mixed-use developments in Dubai.
District Eleven is a suburban mixed-use community development featuring parks, private schools and retail businesses with two prime residential areas. The residential areas cover a total ground floor area of 450,000sqm and 210,000sqm respectively.
One of the unique elements to District Eleven is the launch of Kent College Canterbury – Meydan, a strategic partnership between Meydan Group and one of the most respected educational institutes in the U.K. The school will eventually accommodate up to 2,000 students; sport and recreational facilities will include football and rugby fields, cricket grounds and a running track.
Meydan Avenue, previously known as Diamond Business Park, will offer a blend of residential, commercial, retail and recreational facilities enhanced by the sports and leisure attractions featured at Meydan, as well as a comprehensive range of conference and exhibition services, as well as the new Meydan Arena, positioned close to The Meydan Hotel, with the Dubai skyline serving as a dramatic backdrop to special events and functions.
Completing the range of developments at Meydan Avenue will be the new Meydan Headquarters, a 17,500sqm facility with 11,600sqm available as leasable office space to local and international businesses.
Meydan Chairman, Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, said, "We are building desirable communities in Dubai which will become integral areas for living and working in the years to come. It's an exciting time for us at Meydan as construction is underway on both of these major new projects and will soon be coming to life."
