UPC Confirms Activity Line Up for Cityscape Abu Dhabi 2017

  • Latest progress on the colossal Zayed City Master Plan to be revealed through a state of the art holographic tour. 

The Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (UPC) will announce updates on the Emirate’s most ambitious development project during this week’s Cityscape at ADNEC.

The UPC will unveil infrastructure progress on Zayed City Master Plan, located between Abu Dhabi International Airport and Mohammed bin Zayed City, as well as the project’s official brand identity and logo.

Cityscape visitors will get the chance to experience a fully interactive holographic tour, showcasing key features of the vibrant 45km2 district. They can also take a closer look at a development that will eventually house more than 370,000 residents.

The second day of Cityscape will see the UPC sign an agreement with a number of the UAE’s leading property companies, committing them to a wide range of community initiatives for the UAE’s Year of Giving 2017.

Under the agreement, the UPC will work with private sector developers to plan new community amenities such as parks, as well as establish initiatives to support families of the UAE’s Martyrs. The signing ceremony will confirm specific projects that each company will lead under the UPC’s ‘CSR Year of Giving Initiative’.

H.E. Falah Al Ahbabi, Director General of the UPC, said: “Cityscape Abu Dhabi is a crucial event in shaping the urban development of Abu Dhabi and one that has a direct impact on local communities. As such, it is a fitting occasion to reveal significant updates on the Zayed City Master Plan, a project that is one of the largest and most ambitious in the UAE.

“We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to our stand and introducing them to interactive experiences that reveal the huge range of residential, commercial and community developments at Zayed City.

“Cityscape is also the ideal platform to officially launch the UPC’s principal CSR initiative for this year. This is a truly unique initiative which will bring together the public and private sector as they work together in order to achieve the objectives of the 2017 Year of Giving and our leadership goals.”

The UPC has been ever present at Cityscape Abu Dhabi, which this year takes place at ADNEC from April 18-20. The UPC stand will be located in Hall 8, Stand Number 8F20.
