The Abu Dhabi of today is the manifestation of a vision both ambitious and grand. Once a quiet pearling and fishing community in the heart of the Arabian Gulf, Abu Dhabi is well on its way to becoming a magnificent metropolis replete with amenities and endless potentials.
Cradled by the azure waters of the Gulf, Abu Dhabi boasts of expansive stretches of greens, golden patches of desert, an elaborate skyline and a bustling city life. Beyond what meets the eye, this modern day haven offers its residents and nationals comfort, security and job opportunities.
The story of Abu Dhabi’s development is one for the books. The discovery of large reserves of oil in the mid 1970s jumpstarted Abu Dhabi’s economy and put its humble beginnings firmly in the past. With its growth guided by pioneering leaders and following the vision of the late great H.H. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the capital of the United Arab Emirates has secured its position on the world map as an ultimate business, tourism and residential destination.
Abu Dhabi’s point of strength is its divorce from the dependence on oil as a primary source of national income. Other key sectors, namely real estate, industry and agriculture, have been at the heart of the capital’s boom and are simultaneously playing a critical role in strengthening the pillars of the economy. Someday in the distant future, well after oil reserves have run dry, Abu Dhabi will remain what it was always destined to be – a city of great promises.Key Benefits for Operating at ZonesCorp

ICAD I is focused on heavy-to-medium manufacturing, engineering and processing industries, including metal products, construction materials, fiberglass and plastics assembly. ICAD I extends over an area of 14km².ICAD II
ICAD II is focused on light-to-medium manufacturing, engineering and processing industries, including wood processing, engineering, oil and gas, construction materials, and chemicals. The Zone covers 11km² and has been constructed in distinct phases according to a detailed master plan. The final phase will be completed in 2007.
ICAD III is focused on light-to-medium engineering and processing business with an international focus. Wood processing and engineering, chemicals and plastics, construction materials, high-tech industries, food and textiles are the key target sectors for this zone. It extends over an area of 12 km2 and is scheduled for completion in 2008.
Al Ain Industrial City (I & II)
Al Ain is strategically located between Abu Dhabi and Dubai. Al Ain Industrial City is a multi-use development but with a priority focus on SME’s in the light-to-medium manufacturing, engineering and processing industries, including wood, engineering, chemicals and plastics, construction materials, food and textiles. It covers 5km² with a further 5km² planned for phase II which is currently being master planned. Completion of phase I will occur in mid-2008 and this has generated a very high level of pre-commitment from potential investors.Workers’ Residential Cities
The workers’ residential city projects have been conceived to address the large demand for workers’ accommodation in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. The project need arises from its capacity to support the development of a strong non-oil industrial base in Abu Dhabi and in enhancing the image of the emirate, thereby further attracting investments and the requisite workforce for continued development and growth. Through the development of these facilities, ZonesCorp has sought to balance the national objective of generating immediate capacities against its need for creating self sustaining projects, generating moderate returns to ZonesCorp and the project developers.
ICAD IV and V
ICAD IV and V are both extensions of the previous ICAD zones and will be focused on high value-added manufacturing, commercial and service based industries. We are currently undertaking the pre-feasibility and concept master planning activities for these zones which will cover a land area of approximately 36km2
Energy Zone is our latest and most ambitious zone to date. It is designed to complement the oil and gas hubs already located within ICAD. The Energy Zone focuses on the knowledge-based and energy-related service enterprises within the Energy Sector. Phase 1 of the project covers 36 hectares and will offer a highly distinctive physical identity which incorporates approximately 500,000m2 of high quality office accommodation and associated support facilities. The physical infrastructure will be complemented by a fully integrated ubiquitous technology platform that is unprecedented in the GCC. Even though the first phase of the zone is still in the final phase of master planning there has already been a high level of interest from major players in this sector.
