Mohammed Bin Rashid City (also known as MBR City) is one of the largest cross-functional developments in Dubai, and is also one of the youngest projects in the emirate, as its construction only began in 2012.
The area is named after the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and the current Ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The total area of the district is 108 sq. km, with the total cost of the development exceeding USD 8 billion.
The area is just a 10-minute drive from the city center – Downtown Dubai, and has some pretty incredible surroundings, with a beautiful 7km long artificial crystal lagoon, a 14km long promenade and 8.4km bike and running paths, as well as spacious parks and impressive architecture.
