Founder and Chairman Fernando Fischmann, will be showcased at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One residential community, the lagoon has been flooded and is set to form the world’s largest manmade lagoon, covering 40 hectares, almost four-times bigger than the world’s largest existing lagoon.

“The initial stage of the lagoon at the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum City – District One has been completed on schedule and it is no longer a concept, it is now a reality and I’m extremely confident the development will be a major success.
