The city is home to the President of the UAE, who is a member of the Al Nahyan family. Abu Dhabi’s rapid development and urbanization, coupled with large oil and gas and production reserves and an extremely high level of revenue, has transformed it into a large, prosperous city. It is the world’s political and industrial center, and a major cultural and commercial center. Abu Dhabi accounts for about two-thirds of the nearly $ 400 million UAE economy in the UAE.
The area around Abu Dhabi is full of archaeological evidence from historical societies, such as Umm an-Nar Culture, dating back to the third millennium BCE. Some sites are located just outside the modern city of Abu Dhabi, including the eastern and western regions of the Emirate.
The city of Abu Dhabi is located in the southeastern part of the Arabian Peninsula, bordering the Persian Gulf. It is located on an island less than 250 meters (820 ft) from the mainland and is joined by the mainland by Maqta and Mussafah Bridges. Third, the Sheikh Zared Bridge, built by Zaha Hadid, opened in late 2010. Abu Dhabi is also connected to Saadiyat Island by a five-lane road bridge. The Al-Mafraq bridge connects the city with Reem Island and was completed in early 2011. This is a multi-lane exchange bridge and has 27 lanes that allow 25,000 vehicles to travel per hour. There are three major bridges in the project, the largest of which have eight lanes, four leaving the city of Abu Dhabi and four entering.
Most of the city of Abu Dhabi is located on the island itself, but it has many rural districts, for example, Khalifa City A, B, and C; Caliph City Al Raha Beach; Al Bahia City A, B, and C; Al Shahama; Al Rahba; Between Two Bridges; Baniyas; Shamkha; AL Wathba and Mussafah accommodation. Abu Dhabi’s Gulf waters hold the world’s largest number of Indo-Pacific dolphins. To the east of the island is Mangrove National Park, located in Al Qurm Corniche. Al-Qurm is Arabic for “Mangrove”.
The city was organized under the direction of Sheikh Zared by Japanese architect Katsuhiko Takahashi in 1967 initially with a population of 40,000. Abu Dhabi’s population varies, with high employment rates in the central region, high downtown downtime and low density in urban areas. In densely populated areas, most of the suffering is found in the middle and upper structures. Abu Dhabi’s major buildings include the Burj Mohammed bin Rashid (World Trade Center in Abu Dhabi), the Etihad Towers, the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority Tower, the headquarters of the National Bank of Abu Dhabi, Baynunah (Hilton Hotel) Tower. and Etisalat headquarters are usually located in the financial districts of Abu Dhabi. Other notable modern architecture includes the Aldar Palace, the first circular building in the middle east of the Emirates Palace with its design inspired by Arab treasures. The development of tall buildings is encouraged in Abu Dhabi Plan 2030, which will lead to the construction of new buildings in the next decade, especially in expanding the Abu Dhabi business district such as the new development on Al Maryah Island and Al Reem Island. Abu Dhabi already has many large buildings under construction throughout the city. Some of the tallest buildings in the sky include 382 m (1,253.28 ft) Central Market Residential Tower, 324 m (1,062.99 ft) Landmark and 74 floors, 310 m (1,017.06 ft) Sky Tower, all completed. Also, some buildings over 150 meters (492.13 ft) (500 ft) have been proposed or approved and could change the look of the city. As of July 2008, there were 62 high-rise buildings of 23 to 150 m (75.46 to 492.13 ft) under construction, permitted for construction, or proposed construction.
Abu Dhabi has a diverse and diverse community. The city’s cultural identity as a small, interracial ethnic group was transformed by the arrival of other races and nations — first by the Iranians in the early 1900’s, and later by various Asian and European races in the 1950s and 60s. Abu Dhabi has been criticized for promoting a sectarian society, where immigrant workers are inferior, and suffer from “normal systemic” harassment. The major holidays in Abu Dhabi include Eid al Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, Eid ul-Adha marking the end of Hajj, and National Day (December 2), marking the formation of the United Arab Emirates. This unique social and economic development in the Persian Gulf has meant that Abu Dhabi is generally more tolerant than its neighbors, including Saudi Arabia. Emiratis are known for their tolerance; Christian churches, Hindu temples, and Sikh gurdwaras (with the first synagogue to be built in 2020) can be found alongside Muslims. The global situation is slowly growing and as a result, there are various Asian and Western schools, cultural centers and themed restaurants.
Abu Dhabi is home to many cultural institutions including the Cultural Foundation and the National Theater. The Cultural Foundation, although closed for rebuilding since the spring of 2011, is home to the UAE Public Library and Cultural Center. Various cultural communities such as the Abu Dhabi Classical Music Society have a strong and visible following in the city. The newly launched Emirates Foundation provides grants to support the arts, as well as to advance science and technology, education, environmental protection, and community development. The International Arabic Fiction Award (IPAF) will be in Abu Dhabi. The city also separates hundreds of conferences and exhibitions each year from its arts venues, including the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC) which is the largest exhibition center in the Persian Gulf and receives about 1.8 million visitors annually.
