Am I the only one who thinks this looks disturbingly like the unbuilt 2 WTC in NYC?

its more like the other way around. This tower was designed before 2 WTC.

Foster released the renders for 2wtc back in 2006, so it seems like they may been designed around the same time. I find it odd that he would design two such similar buildings for two different WTC projects.

Oh I hadn't realized this is a Foster design! Keeping up his reputation of a good architect, as always.

It's a fantastic and elegant structure, though the asymmetric footprint is mildly irritating.
Abu Dhabi is has quite a lot of towers with round sides and inclined roofs... and yet another one is to rise.

I agree it's a very cool building. I think the similarities are striking

UK's House of Fraser set to make Middle East debut

Quote:
Aldar Properties has announced that its new World Trade Center Mall (WTC Mall) will open on Wednesday, and will include the Middle East debut of UK retail giant House of Fraser.

Located on the site of the old Central Market, the WTC Mall will house more than 160 shops, over 20 dining outlets and an eight-screen cinema – all contained within the iconic design and architecture of Sir Norman Foster, the developer said in a statement.

One of the Mall’s most significant offerings is the opening of popular British department store, House of Fraser.

Opening for the first time in the Middle East, House of Fraser at the WTC Mall marks the company’s first flagship store outside of the United Kingdom and Ireland’s 60 outlets.
