Day two of Abu Dhabi's real estate event, and the vision for the Emirate's future is attracting much interest
The exhibition has gathered pace today with specific interest in the showcasing of major master developments in the Emirate. The size and quality of some of the exhibiting stands has attracted a lot of interest, specifically The Urban Planning Council’s visual presentation of Abu Dhabi’s future, and the Department of Municipal Affairs’ cinema screening simulation which takes you on a tour of the Emirate as it develops towards the 2030 plan.
The showcasing of Saadiyat Island, the Louvre, Guggenheim and the Zayed National Museum, which are being developed by TDIC, has further demonstrated Abu Dhabi’s drive towards being the arts and cultural capital of the region.
Sorouh, a major developer in the Emirate has unveiled the details of its 15 year masterplan for Lulu Island, which will house potentially 33,000 residents on completion.
The message of controlled growth is clear from all of the master developers; with the focus on developing business cases focused on out-turn value and sustainable revenue generation.
