Absolutely amazing. I always liked this project, but I had no idea it would turn out that stunning with cladding. Together with the equally breathtaking Etihad (sp?) towers Abu Dhabi's skyline is becoming a masterpiece in urban architecture. And there's more to come.

Yep, Abu Dhabi's building's have always been more sleek and tasteful than Dubai's towers.

I don't see why it is necessary to dig out that old chestnut of doing the apples-and-oranges comparison between Abu Dhabi and Dubai whenever someone pays a compliment to one of Abu Dhabi's great projects.

That's totally true.

The passed away Abu Dhabi ruler was very keen on greenery and forestation. Millions of trees have been planted in Abu Dhabi (out of the city), farms were created and his gardens were regular winners on (UK) Queen's gardens competitions.

However Dubai has also allot of greenery for a desert city, much more then you would ever imagine, however most of the construction is happening in new areas and also allot of landscaping has been destroyed during the infrastructure work like the Metro etc, but it will be restored.

This is about as modern as it gets man...fantastic. I like how they built it over the avenue...to give someone directions how to get there - youll drive right into it, you cant miss it

I think so, but that is The Landmark, 1063ft. in the front. Central Market Towers are behind it and the tallest one is to the left, I think. Those in the know correct me if I am wrong.

Build it Bigger ? I also watched it (if it's what your talking about it). I don't know if anyone know's this or not. But there's going to be a swimming pool atop of the tallest tower. The views!
