The first review of the revised master plan for the carbon-neutral Masdar City development in Abu Dhabi is nearing completion.

Designed by Foster + Partners, the master plan incorporates emergent technologies that will aid in the implementation of the first phases of the project.

This allowed for exploration into off-site power generation and a transport strategy that links into the wider Abu Dhabi network.

Masdar City has been under development for three years, in preparation for the next phase of construction, which is expected to begin soon.

The review has also helped in influencing the wider city of Abu Dhabi and the Emirate and the development of the local environmental rating system, Estidama.
