ABU DHABI | Etihad Towers (5 towers) | 218m - 305m | 715ft - 1001ft | 56-79 fl | Com

DBI Design has further cemented its status as a leading international practice by winning a world-wide competition

DBI Design has designed a 5-tower project in the Middle East, valued at more than A$860 million (AED$2.5 billion). DBI Design was awarded the lead design consultant contract for architecture, interior design and landscape architecture on the project. The project, Etihad Towers, will be located on a prominent waterfront site close to the central Abu Dhabi business district, at the end of the Abu Dhabi Corniche.

Compromising five iconic towers ranging in height from 55 to 77 storeys, in excess of 300 metres high, with a total built up area of 500,000m², Etihad Towers will feature an array of amenities, including an international five-star hotel, a boutique shopping mall, premium office tower, a hypermarket and quality residential apartments. It is set to be one of the most prestigious projects in Abu Dhabi.

The Etihad Towers development will consist of three residential towers, and one hotel/serviced apartment tower, centred by an office tower incorporating more than 65,000m² of lettable area. Including a retail podium, the group will be united by a basement car park of four levels, with a capacity for more than 3,000 cars.

All hotel rooms, apartments and office floors will have stunning sea views, overlooking the Abu Dhabi coastline. Etihad Towers’ signature building, the five-star hotel, will accommodate 400 rooms and 200 services apartments, to be operated by Jumeirah, operators of the seven-star Buj al Arab in Dubai and many other prestigious hotels around the world. The high-quality residential apartments will total 870, designed in a variety of configurations to suit all buyers.

The Etihad Towers complex will also house Abu Dhabi’s largest state-of-the-art convention centra and ballroom, at over 2,500m². Complementing these will be a retail center incorporating outlets for major international designer and fashion labels; and eight restaurants. Etihad Towers is scheduled to be completed by early 2010.

I promise after I get my driving license. I am practicing and hopefully after one month I'll finish the training and make the test .. After that you'll see some U/C photos of Abu Dhabi, even if I have to knock doors in apartments!

I can tell you to RL these aren't +300m. only .020 shy, haha.

And its definately UC, I have pics from june with big hole in the ground. And we're just about to hand over to local design team - yay.

Frankly they look nothing like Vision.

And those renders are far out of date.

[edit]

The glass feature on the roof has been revised, RL. 305.300

bah.

It's nice but not that special - fins and that have been used to death.

Also, the two towers at the front block water views from the ones at the back.
