1.Rose Ratana hotel
2.Index
3.Burj Dubai
4.Groseover House
5.Almas Tower
6.Emirates Hotel and Tower
etc.
All these Towers are for sure not took as much as Etidad Towers need....take an example 2005-starting of Burj Dubai and 2009 completion.166floors and 818 meter height just in 5 years but Etihad started with the same year but yet to complete.....

Abu Dhabi not ever near to Dubai interms of speed.All about management....

They are getting irritating. Anyway, great buildings!! It is about time Abu Dhabi challenge Dubai for skyscrapers though I hope they would not end up with a lot of debt for the sake of building all this skyscrapers.

Sorry if I have irritated you but I guess I know about Abu Dhabi having very deep pockets thanks to the fact that the club I support is funded by their deep pockets. It's on my signature. I have to say, Abu Dhabi sure did well to invest more prudently as compared to Dubai. They do huge projects that reflects the culture as well whereas Dubai just builds. That is my opinion, btw.
