Meydan launches huge Dubai project with world’s tallest residential tower
03 August, 2015
Developer Meydan has announced the launch of a new scheme known as Meydan One featuring a 711m-high tower, a huge new mall, the world’s largest indoor ski slope, a 25,000 sqm indoor sports facility, the biggest dancing fountains in the world, a beach and a civic plaza capable of hosting up to 60,000 people. It is also to contain a 100-berth marina. The project is to contain a five-star hotel with 350 keys, a conference centre, the world’s highest 360-degree observation deck (at 655m), the world’s highest sky restaurant at 675m, 885 apartments and a marina yacht club. The mall is to have a retractable roof that opens in the cooler winter months. It will be home to around 300 restaurants, cafés and kiosks as well as a range of retail outlets and nightlife venues. The ski slope is to be 1.2km long and at its base will be the Meydan Arena – an 8,000-capacity venue to host sporting events, concerts and shows. A heritage village is also part of the plan. The first phase of the project, located between Meydan and Al Khail Road, is scheduled for completion before 2020.
