well those areas that you have mentioned will be developed in the near future. Just like Dubai. It's only matter of time and money.

Wow, these looks fantastic. The facade works really well with the shape and the colour scheme makes it look like some sort of oasis rising out the desert - which isn't exactly difficult considering that it is actually in a desert.

Sky and Sun Towers are just a small part, and the first phase of a larger master-plan called Al Reem Island. In just over a decades time Sky tower will be close to the heart of Abu Dhabi's new CBD.

Some info on the master-plan:
"Al Reem Island development is a $30 billion master-planned mixed-use community. The development sits on a natural island just 600 meters of the cost of Abu Dhabi main island. Spread across 6.5 million square meters the island is being built by three developers; Sorouh, Reem Investments, and Tamouh. This 'mega development' is one of the largest under construction in Abu Dhabi and will include a business district, a commercial district and a residential district, transforming the island into a 'city within a city'. Some of the facilities that will be on the island will include; seven schools, shopping malls, art galleries, parks, and four hospitals. The island is expected to have a population of over 200,000 when complete in 2018 (more like 2020 now)."

Here's a render of the Sorouh district. Only about 25% of the master-plan and can be seen at the bottom of the aerial picture above.

Thank you. This is one awesome air shot.
I see they still have a lot of work to do before that city area is done.
