Dubai-based developer Meydan Group announced two projects during the first day of Cityscape. The company behind the world’s largest horse-racing complex launched its Hadaeq Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid project, a new 190,000 sq m housing scheme in Dubai’s Nad Al Sheba.

The group also re-launched its stalled Meydan Tower scheme, a 72-storey tower it originally proposed in 2009.
