Following images taken on May 18, 2005

As you can see, still under construction, still not much visible progress! This reminds me of the Bur Juman tower in Dubai!

I really dont know why you dont like this tower Dennis, in my opinion it's one of the best looking towers under construction in the UAE right now! btw, it's still not completed, we'd be lucky to see it completed before next year. I passed by the construction site and there still seemed a lotta work to be done for the interiors and the entrance area. Also the top is not finished, as seen in the first picture.

I think that the building's design isn't "Abu Dhabi style" though!
The building is new, but it looks like some dusty

This building is amazing! Its a very simple but effective design. I like how it looks so bulky on one side

Thanks for the update. I like the tower, the best in Abu Dhabi in my opinion. Strange that these two KPF designs in the UAE are going so slow.

I know, this one has been under construction for ages now. It's almost complete, just the little bit of top remaining. I would say ADIA should move into this tower by early next year.

Thanks 4 d updates... IMO, Best tower design yet in Abu Dhabi... Facade design is fantastic... I think this tower is one of those they call "GREEN BUILDINGS", besides Bur Juman Tower... KPF designs are really fantastic!!! Sad to say it's ages now and people still cant move in....
