Apex Real Estate plans project in Meydan district
Chinese developer Apex Real Estate is to launch its first residential project in Dubai’s Mohammed bin Rashid City’s District Eleven area
Chinese developer Apex Real Estate Development is to launch its first residential project in Dubai’s Mohammed bin Rashid City’s District Eleven area.
‘The Royal Gardens’ residential project will have 878 residential townhouses and villas units over six million square feet in the District Eleven master development.
The area is part of an enormous masterplan by Meydan and will be designed with families in mind. The community will have parks, villas and mixed use buildings, as well as a family and community centre, retail shops and a mosque.
Developers say District Eleven will have close ties to several key arterial routes in the city, and will be build close to the Meydan racetrack, Meydan Hotel and newly announced Meydan Avenue.
District 11 was announced at Cityscape Global in September 2014. Located adjacent to the urban corridor of Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Road (E311) and Al Ain Road (E66), the community will include two prime residential areas: 1,500 four-bedroom semi-detached villas for Emirates Airline pilots and an additional 700 four-bedroom units constructed in the Meydan Villas plot. The residential areas cover a total ground floor area of 450,000m2 and 210,000m2 respectively.
One of the unique elements to District Eleven is the launch of Kent College Canterbury – Meydan, a strategic partnership between Meydan Group and one of the most respected educational institutes in the UK.
Built around the British curriculum, classes will be offered from year 1 to 12, with students in year 6 and above offered finishing classes with an emphasis on equestrian training. The school will eventually accommodate up to 2,000 students; sport and recreational facilities will include football and rugby fields, cricket grounds and a running track.
At the time, Meydan Chairman H.E. Saeed Humaid Al Tayer said – “We are building desirable communities in Dubai which will become integral areas for living and working in the years to come. It’s an exciting time for us at Meydan as construction is underway on both of these major new projects and will soon be coming to life.
“District Eleven will become a sought after suburban community in Dubai as we bring in outstanding education facilities, complemented by one of a kind landscaping and green space.
“The residential apartments in Meydan Avenue, meanwhile, will look across the Meydan Grandstand, giving residents access to the recreational facilities such as The Track Golf Course and immediate access to a range of shops and restaurants.”
