The half-billion-dollar residential complex, to be built by Escape Real Estate in Ajman, an emirate located north of Dubai which is adopting an aggressive policy of investments in construction, will be entirely dedicated to horse-riding. The project will be called Escape in honour of Escape Ibn Navarrone-D, the champion stallion owned by the sheikh of the emirate, and envisages the construction of 500 villas and 15 small luxurious hotels dedicated to the theme of riding. Each of the 150 rooms will be dedicated to a specific horse breed while the villas, inspired by the traditional Arab and Ottoman architecture will have an “open space” without walls or fences. The horses, inspiration of the entire project, will have on their disposal 200 stables and a post-trauma rehabilitation centre. Apart from race tracks, the village, which should be completed by March 2010, will offer spaces for other sports such as volleyball, basketball and squash.
