/24-7PressRelease/ - Burnley, Lancashire, UK, June 22, 2008 - With phase 1 already sold out, Dubai's Meydan City and Racecourse has come out of the starting stalls at blistering pace. The development was launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai in March 2007.
Located only seven kilometres from the Dubai International Airport and a five-minute drive from Sheikh Zayed Road, Burj Dubai and Dubai Festival City, Meydan City is tipped to become one of the best locations to buy property in Dubai.
Consisting of commercial and residential Dubai property and arcades with canal, waterfront and promenade views, Meydan City will support a thriving community. Throughout the streets and parks bicycle lanes will serve as an alternative means of clean and healthy transport, while pedestrian movement will be encouraged with over 7km of promenade walks via climate-controlled arcades. Other features of Meydan City include a first-rate shopping centre and a tranquil central park, filled with greenery, children's play areas and walkways.
Meydan City will sit alongside Meydan Racecourse, which is due to open in time for the 2010 Dubai World Cup meeting and will be the largest and most high-tech racecourse in the world. The new Meydan racecourse will feature a world-class grandstand, state-of-the-art dirt and turf tracks, training gallops, luxury stables, a championship 18-hole golf course, a five-star hotel with approximately 400 rooms and private villas.
Zuber Mohsan, CEO for sandcastles-property.com believes Meydan City and Meydan Racecourse will become one of the most sought after locations for property in Dubai. "The interest levels for Meydan City have been unsurpassed, and connections within the horse racing world have been highly complementary about the plans for the new Meydan Racecourse."
"We've had several clients enquiring about private villas for sale in Meydan Racecourse and we're sure property in Meydan City will continue to attract keen interest from investors."
Located at the heart of the development will be Meydan Marina, offering more than eighty moorings for luxury boats and yachts. A tramline is also planned to be included, which is likely to operate from the Meydan City to Meydan Racecourse, carrying thousands of passengers each day to the races.
"The sport of kings will soon have its very own kingdom unrivalled anywhere in the world", added Mohsan.
