ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

MASDAR CITY

With the vision of a sustainable city, and a desire to challenge standard master-planning practices in the region, Masdar City will be home to approximately 40,000 residents (with capacity for 50,000 daily commuters).

The city is being developed to include progressive and flexible design solutions, and an inherent resilience, that will allow more sustainable technologies to be incorporated as they develop in the future.

Masdar City will provide a balanced mixture of facilities, with offices, research laboratories, small manufacturing facilities, restaurants, and shops all within close proximity.

RLB provided cost planning, feasibility, and life-cycle costing services for the development of this new city.
