  1. So whilst nothing much seems to be happening with the construction of the leisure elements of Saadiyat Island for the time being there's lots of new developements going up with housing. Not a huge surprise as it happens a lot but hopefully this interest in the luxury housing market will boost the area and progress the building of the other areas.

    Construction of Zayed National Museum has finally commenced (Q1 2020 satellite pics):







  6. March 2019 update:

    The campaign was revealed on Tuesday by Saif Ghobash, undersecretary at the Department of Culture and Tourism Abu Dhabi.

    Mr Ghobash confirmed that major Saadiyat Island projects including the Zayed National Museum and the Guggenheim were still in progress.

    “All I can say now is that with Louvre Abu Dhabi done and completed a year ago, all the other projects have been put into full gear,” he said.

    Plans for the Zayed National Museum were announced in 2007, with a design inspired by a falcon’s feathers completed by the British architect Norman Foster. But the opening has been pushed back several times.
