UAE developer MAG Property Development has selected US firm Parsons for its mixed-use project in Meydan City in Dubai.

Parsons will be in charge of all the design and construction supervision of the AED4bn ($1.1bn) District 7 project.

The mixed-use development will comprise 35 residential buildings, a clubhouse, as well as retail and office space.

In addition to the concept and detailed design of all of the buildings, Parsons will also complete the master planning, infrastructure, and landscape architecture for the entire site, according to statement from the US firm.

Other projects in the Meydan area include the $435m Meydan One Mall being developed by the project’s master developer Meydan Group.

In March this year, MEED reported that Italy’s Salini Impregilo was appointed as the main contractor for the mall.

Construction is scheduled to begin this year and is planned to be finished within 23 months. The first phase of the mall is expected to open in 2020.

The 3.7 square kilometre Meydan One development that includes the mall was launched in August 2015. The development will be home to more than 78,300 residents and feature the 711m-tall Dubai One tower, the Meydan One Mall, a 1.2-kilometre ski slope, a 25,000-square-metre indoor sports arena, a civic plaza large enough to host 60,000 people, a 4km canal and a 100-berth marina.
