Sky and Sun towers


The smaller tower (Sun) has defiantly T/O.
The taller one (Sky) just looks like it needs to complete the top floor. Plus spire?


Also the the smaller 6 towers (The Gate) to the side are also starting to rise.

High Res

i made a search about this beautiful tower and i found some new renders...and as you see there is no spire (more renders here: http://www.sorouh.com/en/section/med...page/1?term=60 )
in addition on this site says that the tower has only 74 floors so it's very near to T/O as says Adam2707
and i heard it only 310 metres tall... i don't know where's the truth...maybe it's only rumor...

This article is dated May 30, but it claims just days away from top out. No mention of a spire.

ABU DHABI // The Sky and Sun towers are days away from reaching their final height on Reem Island, making them the tallest buildings in the capital.

So it would seem. No big loss. I think it looks great as is.

The landmark Sky and Sun Towers, marking the entrance of SHAMS Abu Dhabi, have been 'topped out', meaning that the structures have been completed on both buildings.

Both buildings are now at their full height, with the Sky Tower registering 74 stories and Sun Tower at 65 stories. The buildings are officially the tallest structures in Abu Dhabi today and act as a visual reference point and gateway to SHAMS Abu Dhabi.

Progress on the development continues apace with the majority of the installation work on both the curtain (ie exterior) walls and Sky Pods both completed.

The ground floor slab, Mezzanine level and Level 1 and 2 of the Podium (which will be home to retail, leisure and business facilities) have now been finalised. Levels 3 and 4 are now 90% and 76% complete respectively. Overall construction work on the Podium is now 82% complete and on track to be finished in August.

The internal fit-out of both buildings is also well underway, with meticulous detail being paid to the finishing of the interior partitioning, floor, ceiling and mechanical engineering, meeting the highest standards that Sorouh customers have come to expect.

I will try and grab some photos from Abu Dhabi island, if I head to the mall this week I will grab some shots of these two from distance. They are all alone on Reem, the only other significant high rise work thus far is on Marina Square
