City Of Arabia Overview

City Of Arabia is a multi-million dollar project that includes skyscrapers, a huge wadi district, a giant mall and a theme park.

The project was heavily affected by the global financial crisis in 2008 and the majority of the development has not been built. As of 2019, IMG Worlds of Adventure, GEMS Heritage School and an ENOC petrol station are the only completed buildings, with the landmark Wadi Tower nearing completion.

A few sub-components of the masterplan were started but have since been put on hold.
