Abu Dhabi Capital District

The United Arab Emirates is a federation of seven states, founded by Sheik Zayed of Abu Dhabi in 1971.  The federation does not currently have a capital city.  

The emirate of Abu Dhabi has agreed to fund the creation of a capital district in the heart of the planned Abu Dhabi metropolitan area.  The 4530 hectare site is planned to accommodate a federal government, the Abu Dhabi government and over 300,000 people.  The estimated construction cost is $40bn.

While director of the Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council, Nathan Alexander took the project from conceptual design options to an approved concept.
