I think when world financial crisis take effect, only few cities can stand powerful with almost no effect.....Welcome to ABU DHABI !!!!.

Don't like it. It looks cheap. Especially in between the towers.

The interiors look stunning, and the actual towers themselves look quite distinctive (and I like the cladding too)-- but setting them atop those building-block things at street level makes them look like an afterthought-- a cranial implant cheaply grafted onto a body unprepared to host it. I kind of wish the base looked more like the towers above them.

Other than that though, can't see much else wrong with it. A shame these things are on hold though..

Two common things in all Abu Dhabi projects: they are great and they take for ever to be built!!!

Abu dhabi is a very crowded city. Some times it feels like walking in Hong Kong or Tokyo
