Nope. I've never even been there. But they are still amazing.

Cladding looks incredible indeed! No tension in the glass at all, so a perfect reflection!

This ensemble has risen enourmously. A bit massive and uniform with all that glass, but I like it.
Etihad Towers remind me more of spireless Federations Towers... with a bit of an also spireless Almas Tower (the shape, not the cladding).

Btw. I get 69 stories above podium levels for Tower 2... so the core could be almost at top floor already, with a height of about 270-280m IMO.
