Dubai announces plans for new Marsa Meydan lifestyle development

A project to build a new residential and lifestyle development with a climate-controlled marina, four hotels, waterside villas, plus shop and restaurant-lined waterways has been announced by Dubai’s Meydan Group. The Marsa Meydan will be situated off Dubai’s main artery Sheikh Zayed Road and will be modelled on Los Angeles’ Newport Beach in Orange County.

Marsa Meydan will create a new Dubai address, with a Grand Boulevard and a shaded and climate-controlled boardwalk offering year-round outdoor leisure activities. A climate-controlled marina will act as the centre-point of the development, featuring a revolutionary shading device used to cover the marina during the UAE’s intensely hot summer months and making it a suitable al fresco destination throughout the year.

The development will be crisscrossed with a network of canals designed to become a popular spot for tourists and residents alike, while waterfront villas will have private pontoons and boat moorings. There will also be lavish townhouses and a range of seaside apartments offering an array of accommodation for every budget.

A 15-minute drive from Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC), four hotels will feature in Marsa Meydan, a combination of four- and five-star properties, while a host of food and beverage outlets and retail shops will line the canals and boardwalk. A community centre with a cinema is also planned.

The development will also be home to a mosque, schools for children from nursery age and above, as well as a civil defence plot.

Meydan City Corporation’s Chief Executive Officer, Saeed Humaid Al Tayer, explained:

“Marsa Meydan has been created in line with the vision of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the happiest and healthiest city in the world, one iconic landmark at a time. The lifestyle on offer here today with the launch of this new community is unparalleled; it will appeal to a wide spectrum of the UAE population with a conscious price positioning.

“Innovation sits at the core of the project as we embrace new technologies which allow us to enjoy fresh cool air at any time of year, shading the marina and boardwalk, yet still delivering a sustainably responsible environment which prioritises the everyday experiences of our residents and visitors.”
