Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council is holding a series of workshops in a bid to shape Hudayriat Island’s master plan, which is due to be submitted this year

Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council (Abu Dhabi UPC) is holding a series of stakeholder workshops in a bid to shape the master plan for Hudayriat Island.

During the second of five workshops, which was held on 16 August, government officials, urban planners, and developers discussed a range of topics, including sustainability, transportation, community facilities, water-based recreational amenities, and housing.

In May 2017, US-based CBT Architects was appointed as the lead designer for the island community.

The master plan is due to be submitted before the end of 2017.

Abdullah Al Sahi, executive difrector of Abu Dhabi UPC’s planning and infrastructure sector, said: “Given the extraordinary site and lifespan of the project, which is expected to be developed over the next two decades, it is important to think beyond business as usual.

“The UPC is encouraging stakeholders to push the boundaries of creative possibilities that go beyond the established norms, while keeping the future generations in mind.”

During the second workshop, stakeholders also discussed proposed key performance indicators (KPIs), setting goals for aspects such as energy reduction, habitat creation, the provision of alternative transport, urban design, and educational and social inclusivity. The KPIs will allow the project team to develop a master plan with measurable targets for success, according to Abu Dhabi UPC.

Located southwest of Abu Dhabi Island, Hudayriat Island boasts 30km of accessible waterfront. The development, which will be conducted over the next 20 years, will involve the creation of Emirati housing, with low-density communities themed around culture, coastline living, pearl diving, and nature.

Abu Dhabi UPC said that Hudayriat Island will become an attraction for local and regional residents, as well as tourists and visitors.
