When his Highness, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum had announced in November 2013 that he is planning to build a city inside the city of Dubai, it had naturally become the NEXT BIG THING.
When men of this country can dream and build something magnanimous like the Burj Khalifa on a desert land, one cannot even fathom what stature would their next vision would be. With enthusiasts from all across the Globe, curiosity and excitement for the Mohammed bin Rashid City flew across the Dubai skies and beyond. From tourist attractions to commercial and residential projects, Mohammed bin Rashid City is a dream city. This surreal township was inaugurated in May 2015 by his Highness.
With the MBR City being a living breathing entity, fun and luxury will have a new synonym. The city is already being called the ‘Next Downtown Dubai’, and is all set to take Dubai’s position as a lifestyle destination several skyscrapers higher.

Stillness. Calm. Poised.

The major chunk being developed by District One is one not to be missed. Ranging from apartments to villas to mansions, District One has managed to create a truly unique living environment. This eight million square ft. freehold community of lavish homes boasts of innovative designs, luxurious spaces, stunning, scenic views and the unmatchable experience of living in the heart of one of the most promising and exciting cities in the world!
Four times larger than the world’s largest existing lagoon, the crystal lagoon at MBR city claims to be the world’s largest man made lagoon covering as much as 40 hectares. This area is not only about beautiful homes, but corporate towers, industrial parks, sports areas, public park larger than London’ Hyde Park. This straight out of a movie set location, the MBR City enthralls with water parks and the “Mall of the World” — largest ever mall over the Globe all (under construction).
Phases one and two of the project have already been sold out, and phase three is predicted to sell out soon after completion too. The entire project is scheduled to be completed and handed over starting from the first quarter of 2019 till the last quarter of 2020. Just like Rome wasn’t built in day, over 9000 site-men have been deployed at District One since its announcement to make it an extraordinaire.
The world’s biggest shopping mall, “Mall Of The World”, is another gem within this city. (This is like a sub heading within the blog, so just keep it in bold)
With a theatre district which can very well compete with London’s West End or New York’s Broadway, this mall is not just about shopping or eating!
In terms of shopping, this may just be Dubai’s answer to London’s Oxford Street or Paris’s Champs Elysee.
Whereas, it will also feature the world’s longest indoor ski slope too. A park that is touted to be close to 30% larger than Hyde Park in London is part of the grand plan too. These alone exceed the real estate value and attraction of Europe and America combined!

Also on offer are various other facilities for entrepreneurs, such as the ‘Cultural Crossing’, a project which will link the township to Downtown Dubai and Business Bay. MBR City enjoys a central location! It borders Dubai Design District, Ras Al Khor, Business Bay, Dubai Downtown and other popular areas. The commute from MBR City to the International Airport, Dubai World Trade Centre, DIFC, and Old Town etc. is extremely convenient and accessible, thus giving visitors and tourists even more comfort.
The city will have one of the highest proportions of green and open space that is close to 65% of its total area. It will also have a very low density of residential developments, which would actually add to its commercial hub vibe, and make it even more inviting to tourists!
There are also Golf courses in the vicinity including Emirates Golf Club, Al Badia Golf Club, and Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club among others for those who like their life at a slow, calm pace. The City is an arm’s distance from Zabeel Park, Dubai Miracle Garden and Safa Park.
Talking about the numerous luxury hotspots, Dubai is famous for, MBR City is minutes away from Palazzo Versace, Armani Hotel, Ritz Carlton DIFC, Four Seasons Jumeirah Beach, The Farm Al Barari and various other luxurious establishments. The City is also close to The Kent College Dubai, Academic City, GEMS Modern Academy and Repton Academy. The healthcare facilities within the city also look extremely alluring with health care centers like the Dubai Healthcare City and American Hospital Dubai are also accessible from MBR City.
The City promises to be an experience of a lifetime with its sheer grand scale and magnificent infrastructural projects. As a mixed-use project, MBR City sure is a place to watch out for and look forward to, for potential residents, tourists as well as investors.
