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 has announced.

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.

Mohammed Ahmed bin Abdulaziz Al Shehhi, board member of Meydan Sobha, said: "We are incredibly proud of the progress made so far and feedback from our customers has been fantastic. 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."

PNC Menon, founder and chairman, Sobha Group, added: "Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City - District One located in the heart of Dubai is the perfect residential getaway, with its range of facilities and community atmosphere. Our main focus, beyond timely delivery, is to employ best of breed construction methods and controls to handover the best quality villas in the market."

Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City - District One will also feature a promenade with a wide range of stores, restaurants, cafes, bistros and entertainment options.
