But in the meantime, Meydan has become much more than a place for horse racing. It is a terrain in Dubai that is characterized by sustainability and innovation.
The new quarter extends from the desert to the Burj Khalifa, with an area of several million square meters. A four-meter long canal connects the Meydan One area with the Arabian Gulf. This means that the district can be reached by public transport, water taxis, or yacht.
