Good to see the bridge link going in on Khalifa street. I was told it was stopped due to the poor performance by the Souk contractor Mushriff (spelling?) which in turn held up ACC who are doing the towers and emporium through the middle.

There was an annoucement saying the souk will be open in March, a friend drove past today and said, "if they only meant the ground floor for soft opening not a chance!"

More likely to be its fourth.

Sky tower, eternally complete. 310m.
Eithad Tower 2, almost topped out. 305m.
The Landmark, should be done before this. 324m.

I do agree that it need more attention though, simply because of its fantastic design. A shame we dont get more updates on this one...

I'm not a fan of this design. It looks kind of sci-fi evil empire to me.

Hey Abu Dhabi, call them: "Khalifa Tower 2,3 and 4!" The first in Dubai and the 2nd 3rd and 4th in Abu Dhabi.....

What a wonderful futuristic Tower Trio - need more Popularity.

Need a TV Documentary / Reportage on CNN, N24, Al Jazeera, Arirang Korea TV and others..........

20th January - No more cladding added but the core looks like it has topped out on the commercial building.

These buildings are beginning to look very imposing in the Abu Dhabi skyline. Thank you Adam for the image.
