You can clearly see that the podium isn't completed, and the guy might have just photoshoped the cranes out of the picture ... which IS a real picture (albeit photoshoped a little)

Amazing

Where do these people get all this money! It truly amazing what is happening in Dubai in terms of architecture. It is like the dream city for innovators in the field of architecture and design. I never thought that they had such a great taste in the middle east, now I really want to go to Dubai

That is obviously a render there isn't even and building under construction in that photo beside the Etihad Towers and they don't even look close to real.

This is in Abu Dhabi, i have always thought the architecture was a little more tasteful than Dubai's

Well thee style is very much alike, I didn't know about this Abu Dhabi, AMAZING. These kind of buildings definitely add brand reputation not only to the builders but also to the owners.

I think these towers are just getting handed over... Their location is perfect, on the corniche.. And opposite the emirates palace...

These towers will definitely become a tourist attraction in their own right, the outside is a great view from many angles, including the sea.

The inside is breathtaking, do yourself a favour and do not look at any internal pictures before you go, and then be blown away when you get there!

Although in saying that, I don't think any pictures can convey the sheer scale of this building, especially the Jumeirah grand lobby.
