Futuristic Eco-City Masdar Keeps Rising, Right On (a New) Schedule
Despite setbacks, Abu Dhabi's hyperstructure continues climbing above the desert.
PSFK previously reported on Masdar City when construction began in 2008, when the city’s rapid transport system was unveiled, and when, in May of 2011, the development first opened. As 2014 begins drawing to a close, media voices such as The Verge and the UK’s Business Reporter question city planners’ ability to complete the ambitious project; nevertheless, the city’s designers and backers remain firm that Masdar City will unfold — if under slightly different circumstances — according to plan.
