The F1-X, a Formula One themed leisure family suited destination, is being developed by Union Properties in conjunction with Formula One administration, and is expected to open in 2009 as the first theme park of its kind anywhere in the world.
The development, spread over 254,000 sq m will feature over 20 rides, installations and attractions plus a full schedule of in-park entertainment and demonstrations allowing guests to get behind the scenes 365 days per year.
Another project within the MotorCity development is The Dubai Autodrome which is already operational, and features a 5.39 km FIA certified track with supporting services.
The third project is Business Park MotorCity, offering investment and development opportunities for companies related to the automotive industries. It is divided into three main districts of retail commercial, auto commercial and applied technologies.

The development will be gated and will offer retail opportunities and recreation centres.
