World Largest Horse Racing Course

I'm sure everyone of you must always think which project I'm involve with in Dubai, this post will be my first ever post to reveal the project I'm working with.

Introduction:

This project is located in Nad Al Sheba, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The project named as Meydan Race Course and the client is Meydan LLC.

I think you all will not believe how can an Islamic country have such a huge horse racing course, let me tell you all, horse racing is the most prestige sport in UAE, they held the Horse Racing World Cup every year. It's not mean for gambling like horse racing in other countries.

Meydan Race Course

Total Development Area: 76 million square feet
Race Track: Dirt & Turf
Attendance: Approximately 60,000
Grandstand Building Length: 1km
Car Park Wing Span: 1.3km
Car Park Spaces: 10,000 spaces

This race course is a fast track project, we are now working all out to meet the completion target. This race course is targeted to open for the 2010 Dubai World Cup.

The building consists of World Class Hotel, Goldophine Gallery - Horse Museum and Imax Theater, World Class Grandstand and Boathouse. For boathouse it will have a man made canal connect to Dubai Creek to allow boats to enter to the race course.

Here are some pictures I took by using my new toy LUMIX DMC-FZ28...

Currently, this will be the world largest horse racing course. As we know, Dubai buildings always want to be world class such as world tallest, largest, longest, special and so on... Recently they announced going to build the first ever rotating building in the world. All these man made features will be the most challenging tasks in this engineering world.
