Masdar City Phase 2 Detailed Master Plan
Masdar City, Abu Dhabi, UAE
995,000 Square Meters
Residential, research & development, retail, restaurants, community facilities, open spaces


Located outside of Abu Dhabi, Masdar City is a low-carbon and pedestrian-focused innovation community designed to encourage creativity and collaboration in the midst of one of the world’s harshest climates. CBT’s award-winning Detailed Master Plan for the city’s second phase of development pushes the limits of city-building and urban design to set a new international precedent for sustainable urban planning and community building.

This 995,000 square meter phase will create a welcoming and walkable community by introducing many of the city’s core elements such as a research and development cluster, shops and restaurants, residential neighborhoods, complete streets, community centers, parks, and plazas. 

Inspired by local culture and the natural environment, one-of-a-kind public spaces will animate, engage and connect the city. From education centers and research fields to multi-use trails and mosques, the DMP celebrates the city’s tremendous social, economic, ecological and cultural synergies. 

Together, these thoughtfully planned spaces and programs will create a lively and legible city experience.
