Its magnificient, the best new tower so far this year that i know of (if its indeed built in such a location, on a peninsula/island). Very pleasing and inspiring sight.

I noticed that in a picture from the Abu Dhabi cityscape from Imre this tower is included. Look at the up right corner fo the model, there you can see the tower.
