You can see a buildings core rising near the bottom/middle of the picture. I think that's Tower #3.

I just watched a documentary on Discovery about this complex, and they were pretty full of crap, saying that this will be the tallest residential tower in the world. I guess checking stuff out in a 40km radius was too much for them.

I really doubt that. Judging from the progress it was shot about march-may last year (residential tower was at floor 80 with cladding already done on some floors, the Office tower was almost topped out - with two months more work on the roof and the souk was pretty much complete - four months from being ready I believe). So Princess Tower and 23 Marina were well under construction then - even mentioning those two would suffice. I don't know, maybe the site visit was like "you can come shoot, but you have to say Dubai sucks and is an indebted scrap of desert with all projects stalled".

The following article from July 6th, 2011 on worldpropertychannel.com about Trust Tower sounds more optimistic:

"Abu Dhabi's Trust Tower Starts Office Pre-Leasing Program Ahead of 2012 Completion

Abu Dhabi-based Aldar properties announced this week that Trust Tower, the latest of its commercial office developments, is now available for pre-lease.
The building will be available for tenants to start their fit-out on a phased basis from November 2011 prior to officially opening in mid-2012.

Located in the heart of Abu Dhabi city, Trust Tower provides an ideal location for corporate tenants wishing to benefit from premises that blend commercial
connectivity with the premium housing and a wide range of shops and facilities that will be on offer at Central Market in downtown Abu Dhabi.

The building offers 59-levels, 72,000m2 of flexible office space at the heart of Abu Dhabi.
Its design allows tenants to occupy space at a density of 1:10, up to 40% more efficient than the average density for other grade A offices in Abu Dhabi,
meeting the needs of tenants looking to maximize floor space in the current market.

Designed by leading British architect Lord Norman Foster, the building includes a number of distinctive features that fit the needs of demanding
international corporations. These include an 'intelligent' fašade that controls light levels into the building for cooling purposes; a state-of-the-art
vertical transportation system with three banks of double-deck lifts providing high-speed access for large numbers of occupants to all levels of the building;
and flexibility in the ceiling design that enables tenants to efficiently customize their office space.

As one of the few buildings in Abu Dhabi that is designed to internationally accepted, Grade A standards, which enables incoming tenants to minimize
both expenditure and time during their fit-out, Trust Tower once again demonstrates Aldar's credentials as a developer and commercial landlord of premium quality,
practical office space.

"Trust Tower has been designed with efficiency and flexibility in mind to meet the needs of today's enterprise and demonstrates once again Aldar's track record
of developing the highest quality commercial buildings in Abu Dhabi," said Rami Nasser, Director of Sales and Commercial leasing at Aldar Properties."


And here are two great pics linked from the article above on www.worldpropertychannel.com.
The second one with the view from the Residential Tower down to Trust Tower is breathtaking!

On track for a 2012 completion, the Trust Tower in the Central Market is one of the largest office towers in Abu Dhabi, with a third more space than the landmark Aldar headquarters.
