The city of Abu Dubai keeps expanding and now the urban developers have set their eyes on the last remaining island. The mayor approves and plans are made. Their were already plans for a financial district, which includes bank headquarters, stock brokers and more businesses in these categories. This will be the pinacle of the new project. A new district will be build around it. Just as with the Marina, such a massive project cannot be done in one go. So this project will also follow a phased growth. It will be five phases, starting with the financial district and then gradually build the district around it. Not the entire island will be exploited. The mountaineous part will be preserved as it is one of the last natural environments in the city.
The island will be connected with the main land with a tunnel. A bridge would detoriate the waterfront views, and this is unacceptable. The tunneldigging has started and the foundations of the financial district are being prepared.
