Mohammed Bin Rashid City, abbreviated to MBR City, is the bold new vision of Dubai announced by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The development is to be one of the largest mixed-use communities and is conceptualised as a microcity - a city within a city. The four major components that have inspired the idea of MBR City are retail, arts, family tourism and innovation.
The community offers a wide array of housing complexes including luxurious apartments, villas and mansions adorned with modern design encompassed within 45 million square feet of freehold property. Nestled amid landscaped greenery, a gorgeous man-made lagoon and stunning architecture, Mohammed Bin Rashid City - District One offers its residents a serene and expansive community where they don’t have to worry about crowds or the hustle and bustle of the city. The cost of the entire MBR City development has been estimated to be around AED 30 billion.
MBR City is located in the heart of Dubai. It is bordered by three important arteries of the Dubai road network - Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road (E311), Sheikh Zayed Road (E11) and Al Khail Road (E44). The development is thus well connected and residents will find it effortless to travel throughout the emirates with MBR City as their home base. The Mohammed Bin Rashid City development also offers ease of access to Business Bay, Downtown Dubai, Dubai Design District and Al Quoz making it an excellent location for young professionals and families trying to improve both their career and family-oriented goals.
The Dubai Mall, Mercato Shopping Mall and the Mall of the Emirates are in the vicinity of the development and residents can visit these locations for their retail needs. MBR City is only minutes away from many of Dubai’s world-class attractions and transport links including Dubai World Trade Centre, Dubai International Airport and Dubai International Financial Centre. Exclusive leisure facilities like the Meydan Racecourse and Grandstand are also in the vicinity of the development. MBR City is also an ideal location for those in the community who love animals, as an equestrian and falcon centre is in the vicinity of the microcity. MBR City is a vast development with popular communities like Sobha Hartland, Mag Eye at Meydan, District One Residences and District 11. The expansion offers an exciting community life with a plethora of amenities and expansive green spaces in a modern setting.
The Meydan One Mall in Dubai is the latest innovative destination for shopping and recreation. The project is set to redefine traditional retail experiences due to its retractable skylight. Once retracted, the skylight converts a spacious indoor retail destination into a stunning outdoor leisure park. The Meydan One Mall will feature a 1-kilometre long ski slope and a 400-metre long shopping strip. The complex will showcase over 600 stores and 100 food outlets. The engineering marvel will also highlight the iconic Meydan One Civic Plaza and an indoor aquatic park. The Meydan One Mall expects over 6 million visitors each year who can park in any of the 12,000 parking spaces. A leisure centre, in collaboration with Universal Studios, is in the works that will be connected to the mall.
Often representing Mohammed Bin Rashid City, Crystal Lagoon is the upcoming largest man-made lagoon in the world. The design of the Crystal Lagoon is inspired by the Caribbean and features clear aquamarine waters and palm trees on either side of the lagoon. The lagoon covers an impressive 7 kilometres and will offer a peaceful beachfront in the centre of MBR City. MBR City will offer a retail boardwalk, dotted with luxury shopping outlets and fantastic dining venues. Playgrounds, health centres, medical centres and swimming pools are only some of the amenities offered near MBR City. For fitness fanatics, MBR City offers the District One Cycling and Running Track that is located on Muscat Street. A large central park is in development at MBR City and on completion will become the hub for all social and recreational activities at the development.
