Spearheaded by the legendary Norman Foster, Masdar City is a ground breaking new development currently under construction in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), With city planning focused on providing all of the modern conveniences, services and benefits of living in one of the great cities of the world, but in a 100% carbon-neutral environment.

While sustaining a population of 47,500, Masdar City will run only on renewable energies sourced from the harsh Arabian climate via the wind and sun. Cars will be replaced with electronic rail and an innovative personal rapid transit system making it pedestrian friendly where upon no resident will be less than 200m from public transport & amenities.

Masdar City is more than a concept – it is happening. Phase One of Masdar City has now begun – The Masdar Institute of Science and Technology is underway and Masdar City will be home to 100 students and faculty by fall 2009 with completed development in the next 8 – 10 years.

Lets hope that one day all cities will be built like this.
