I wonder if any of the supertalls going up in Abu Dhabi has a public observation deck.

This is the second Supertall to T/O in AD.
3 more to go, and the fourth one is yet to start! ( Adnoc head Quarter)

Considering that AD in general is way more obsessed with security issues then Dubai is, I would find that hard to believe to be the case.

"obsessed with security" is truly the accurate word to describe AD construction work!
But the towers will eventually complete

We were not talking about construction speed, we were talking about observation decks on top of these towers.
