CBD Renovation

-ICE-{man}

After a long time of not playing CitiesXL due to my study and other activities, I started playing again! I continue with this city, as I want to know how it will be when it is fully finished. And I just like this city!

As Abu Dubai gains more and more reputation around the world, rich international businesses want to have their offices in this city. It offers good quality work environments, leisure activities and living space. In order to cope with this new demand, a plan to revise the old Central Business District was created. The old buildings would be demolished or renovated and new buildings will be put in place. The new offices had to be attractive for the multinationals. Thus a skyscraper cluster was proposed. The mayor agreed with this plan, and the construction began without hesitation.
