Please mark the location of that building on a google earth screenshot and post that pic here. I will be in mid March in Abu Dhabi. I promise to take u/c pics from that site and post them here.

Are there any people here who live in abu dhabi?

Or is it soooo hard to take a picture of this construction?

Abu Dhabi looks much more established and city-like than Dubai, in my opinion.

If you exclude the 'old' dubai you are right. Abu Dhabi has that grid you can find in other cities. The new dubai is build on cul de sac like roads wich don't give that impression of build up area a city normally does.

Nice tower btw

what's up with abu shagara, the area around the kahlid lake? You don't hear a lot of that, but it's filled with highrises too...Is it a part of Dubai? That part seems much more urban then Dubai itself.

This tower will look pretty cool. Too bad there are so few updates.

I think you are talking about Sharjah ... which in general is taller then Dubai.

No, it's its own emirate.
