Construction on Meydan Sobha's Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City - District One project remains on target, with phase 1 villas scheduled for a mid-2016 handover, the developer hasannounced.
With phase 1 villas being fully sold and phase 2 villas nearly sold out, the company said in a statement that it is focused on delivery of homes and has completed 90 percent of phase 1 villa foundations.
Work on vertical structures as well as infrastructure, including an 8.8km bicycle and jogging track, are progressing rapidly, the developer said.
It added that there are currently more than 4,000 workers on site, with numbers expected to reach more than 7,000 workers in a few months.
Covering 1,100 acres, the project includes the development of a seven-kilometre stretch of Crystal Lagoons to give residents a beachside lifestyle.
The developer said District One is one of the lowest density residential developments.

With construction hitting targets for both Phase I and Phase II we are looking forward to another successful year ahead as we gear up for delivery of Phase I starting in mid-2016."
