Emaar starts construction to expand Dubai's Arabian Ranches
Phase 3 of the masterplanned residential community will feature a park that will span the length of four football fields
Among the major attractions planned for Phase 3 of the project is a 3ha park that will be as large as four football pitches.
The park will feature a central plaza, lawns, adventure zones, a parkour course, a skate park, barbeque areas, a gymnasium, jogging tracks, and a cricket pitch.
Additional amenities at Arabian Ranches' third phase will include a mosque, schools, healthcare facilities, and children's playground areas.
The Mohamed Alabbar-led developer has also planned a direct connection from the community's Phase 3 to the 86km Al Qudra Cycling Track.
Commenting during the project's ground-breaking ceremony, managing director of Emaar Properties, Ahmad Al Matrooshi, said sales for the community would be launched in due course.
Earlier this month, Emaar announced that it had recorded a 53% spike in its Q1 2019 sales, with revenues topping $1.6bn (AED6bn) and its backlog reaching $13.6bn (AED50bn) during the period.
