An dieser Stelle sei erwähnt, dass bei der genannten Recherche es sich als schwierig herausgestellt hat, geeignete objektive Berichterstattungen zu erhalten. Während die Beschreibungen von Masdar urban vor allem anhand der unternehmenseigenen Veröffentlichungen stattfinden, da Presseberichte meist nur die Informationen neu aufbereiten, sind die kritischen Darstellungen oft rein hypothetischer Natur. Da sich der bisher Baufortschritt noch in Grenzen hält, ist es derzeit für Experten schwierig die Machbarkeit der Stadt anhand fester Grundlagen zu bewerten.
