    Saadiyat Grove's original deadline was Q4 2023 and they then pushed it to 2025, but Q1 2024 seems easily achievable.
    They need the Grove operational for people to come to the museums.

    Earlier this month, the airport confirmed that over the last three years, no further progress had been made, and the terminal remains in the same state as it did before the pandemic. However, on Friday, Momberger Airport Information reported that the terminal is finally set to open later this year, with the inauguration likely taking place on December 2, 2023, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) 's National Day.

    LOTR as a separate park or integrated with WB?

    There are two more plots left in the Theme Park District. One to the left of WB and one right above SeaWorld.

    If Disney is coming, it could be the one above SeaWorld cause that is a bigger plot

    Saadiyat Grove is back on track as well.

    During 2021, Al Shafar General Contracting (ASGC) was awarded a contract for mixed use development and infrastructure works at Saadiyat Grove and Al Gurm respectively.

    Museum #4 on Saadiyat is a Natural History Museum. It's at the place where the Zaha Hadid Performing Arts Centre was supposed to be. Quite a shame as the Performing Arts Centre looked amazing.

    Latest satellite images show that the place where the TDIC office was, has now been cleared. While it's a little blurry, it's probably where the two additional museums which they confirmed last month will come.

    Funnily enough, while articles seemed to suggest that two completely new museums were to come up, Google Maps now has a listing for 'Performing Arts Centre' at that exact spot. Seems like the old plans are coming to fruition.

    What's up with Saadiyat Grove?

    I've been seeing the updates on the Abrahamic Family House and of the Zayed National Museum. It's nice to see that one of the "wings" of the museum seem to have topped out, but I don't see any updates on Saadiyat Grove.

    Aldar's website says project completion to be in 2023, but Google Maps shows only the basic foundation work done and nothing else. Has there been any work on that end? I truly believe that the Grove will be a wonderful addition to Saadiyat along with the Guggenheim. Thanks to a recent confirmation from TCA we know that the work on the Gugg is back on.

    I'm assuming the other two museums they hinted at in the announcement made are the Tadao Ando designed Maritime Museum and Zaha Hadid's Performing Arts Centre, atleast I hope that they are. There are a few links for the Maritime Museum on a few government pages but no hint about the Performing Arts Centre. Fingers crossed though.

    Updates on Cultural District

    With the latest satellite imagery on Google Maps, you can see that work is well underway on the Zayed National Museum and the foundations have begun on The Grove.
    Plus as of the latest visuals which were updated sometime this week, work has begun on the Guggenheim as well with a site office established over there.

    There was a mention on one of Abu Dhabi's website on Tadao Ando's Maritime Museum (which hasn't been spoken about a lot) too with the website last being updated in July, 2020.

    Guess all projects except Zaha Hadid's Performing Arts Centre are back on track.
