Pedestrian-centered Housing Clusters/ Masdar City Detailed Master Plan: Phase 2
An emerging innovation hub outside of Abu Dhabi, Masdar City realizes a unique vision for a low-carbon, pedestrian-focused community in the midst of an auto-centric society.
Home to the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology, and a number of leading renewable energy groups, shops, restaurants, and residential communities, Masdar City is already redefining city building in the 21st century. The Phase 2 Masterplan focuses on R&D and Housing Clusters, commercial corridors, community centers, mosques, and schools. This diverse mix of landuses will be seamlessly connected by a continuous and a welcoming public realm comprised of walkable streets and a robust public transit network.
