Reem Island will be done in 7 phases and fully complete between 2020-2023. It being built between three of Abu Dhabi's largest developers. Many of the buildings are not stupidly size and unrealistic. They will be serving a purpose to expand AD's existing overcrowded and dated CBD. And while Dubai has a massive oversupply of properties, AD has an under supply of about 20,000+ units. With a population growing about 5% a year. This project will happen, I guarantee you that.

Besides Abu Dhabi's pockets are too deep to go bankrupt.

I agree, Abu Dahabi is something like a reasonable Dubai. They build their city as a sculptor would whereas Dubai is just sheer force. Be that as it may, I really enjoy watching both citys develop.

I expected it to be better. But I think once some more towers come up, they will mix with the skyline.
