Wonderful project. In my opinion Abu Dhabi's projects have a much better style than Dubai's.

No, the glass will go higher. From the renders you can see two "fins" at the top. One inner short version, and a taller one. The shorter fin is formed. But the larger one is still to come.

Wow....again the REAL thing looks much better than the renderings. I love the look of these towers. Good job Abu Dhabi.

I didn't see this asked before, what is the palace looking building in front of the picture below? It's gorgeous.

yea, had the most expensive tea and scones there, in my experience at least, ie US$30, but worth it as i skipped dinner there were so many treats.
