Nah, the tower looks alright but the surrounding complex doesn't look very attractive.

Yes, it has a long way to go. But Abu Dhabi has a very good plan for the city's future, much more appealing than Dubai etc imo. I think its thought through and everything has to start somewhere.

Westisbest, if I understand it correctly, the Sky Tower and another tower adjacent to it have the same exact shape (oval footprint). But, the Sky Tower will be taller than that other tower.

See http://sorouh.com/Developments/OurPr...3/Default.aspx for two images which might help.
