Meydan Sobha was established as a limited liability company which is a 50% free zone company between Meydan and Sobha for the joint venture. Its responsibilities are to develop parks, waterways, forests and open spaces covering 2.4 million square meters (600 hectares) Mohammed Bin Rashid City (MBR). In March 2013, Meydan Group announced the launch of the District One project with Sobha Group, which will be implemented on an area of 4 million square meters. One of the highlights of District one, which is expected to be a strong attraction of a 350,000 square meter water park and the world’s largest watercourse, is a crystal lake with seven-kilometre scenic lakes, artificial beaches, sports, entertainment and retail centres. Surrounded by the unique “Heart of Dubai Green”, 1,800 luxury villas will be delivered in four stages and will become one of the least densely populated residential areas in any of the world’s cities.
