:applause: BRIDGEWAY AT ZAYED SPORTS CITY:applause:

This urban destination is adjacent to the UAE’s largest sports stadium – host to major international events. Clearly visible from Airport Road and overlooking public gardens, ‘Bridgeway at Zayed Sports City’ includes a five star hotel, serviced & residential apartments and shopping complex.

It is close to Abu Dhabi International Airport, the Abu Dhabi Golf Club, the new Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre and is less than 20 minutes drive from the city’s main business district – enhancing its appeal for business travellers.

Due for completion in 2009, the complex is designed as a peaceful city retreat, and will be distinguished by unique design and architecture, crowned by a fabric tensile roof running throughout the project, with the grounds dotted with landscaped gardens and water features.

A joint venture between TDIC and Abu Dhabi’s Al Farida Group, one of the region’s most expansive and diversified investment conglomerates, the development will be constructed at a cost of AED 500 million (US $136 million).

I think 'almost complete' is taking it a step to far, but I understand what you mean ;)
I have to say it though, I'm not a fan of the cladding, and it looks nothing like the original renders.


Is there still another building to rise in this complex? Some of the renders show 2 buildings..

I like it, and I dont at the same time. It might not date very well, particularly the glazing colour choices.

So many interesting buildings going up in the MIddle east still though.
