In pics: Dubai’s Meraas unveils New York-style ‘Central Park’ project

In its first phase, the residential complex will comprise 187 one- to four-bedroom units



Dubai developer Meraas has unveiled a new residential project in its City Walk development surrounding a 40,000 sqm private park, “reminiscent of New York’s famous Central Park.

Spanning a total area of 230,000 sqm, Central Park at City Walk will include 12 terraced mid-rise residential buildings.

In its first phase, the residential complex will comprise 187 one- to four-bedroom units that overlook the park, a statement said.

The complex will feature a lobby with concierge services and two large rooftop terraces on either side.

Amenities include tennis and basketball courts, swimming pools, spas, cafes and a multi-purpose kids play area.

It is also located close to City Walk’s retail complex and the indoor event venue Dubai Arena – which is expected to open this year.

Dubai Arena, first announced in late 2016, features 46 hospitality suites that will have the capacity to host 17,000 people for events including concerts, basketball, boxing, volleyball, ice hockey and gala dinners, exhibitions, conferences and festivals.

When it officially opens the venue will be managed by international operator AEG Ogden, whose portfolio includes The O2 in London, STAPLES Centre in Los Angeles, the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai and Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney.
