Great building design! I like the AD better than the Nanjing one, primarily because of the top.

Oh that is gorgeous!

Cesar really was the man for the job - and what a great design he's created!

So what does it look like at the sides. The front looks... OK but we need to see the sides and back.

OMG that tower is gorgeous - especially from the first render's angle.

While we're discussing taxonomy, I've taken on board the comments above - I'm personally going on a crusade against the French for calling the Straights of Dover La Manche!!! The ignorant fools, don't they what it's supposed to be called!!!!!

This building doesn't look as "Pellish" as his other projects.It would be nice to see other renderings showing the tower from other angles.

nice design, but its size seems very out of place for Abu Dhabi. Personally, I like how Abu Dhabi is primarily mid-high rise - not supertall.

Don't know what you mean by the project being old (has the propsal been around for a few years?), but yeah....the only pics so far besides renders is what Krazy posted of the board on site and the foundation on page 1 of the thread.

Aren't there any keen Abu Dhabians to take construction pics for all of us to enjoy?

Now this project is by "Department of Presidents Affairs, HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan."

Anyone knows if they got a website, please?
