MASDAR CITY: ROOTED IN THE LEGACY OF THE UAE

Where heritage and progress meet

Masdar City is located in Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates. Once a remote fishing village, the Abu Dhabi of today is a global destination known for its technological advancements, thriving business ecosystem, and a mix of modern and traditional architecture set against an expansive desert on one side and the Arabian Gulf on the other. 

Masdar City’s vision for cities of the future is rooted in the legacy of the United Arab Emirates’ esteemed leaders, who have always valued sustainability. The late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, known as the founding father of the UAE, played a pivotal role in shaping the country’s destiny—and our vision. 

We’re immensely proud of our Emirati heritage and the role that history is playing in our story.

Future generations will be living in a world that is very different from that to which we are accustomed. It is essential that we prepare ourselves and our children for that new world.
