WOW! Those buildings are huge!!! And they're still gonna build those residential towers around these two giants?

And the design has grown on me. I'm not a fan but they don't bother me anymore. The color is different from what I thought it was gonna be and I like the small white panels here and there.

^^ That's the plan but who knows now with the financial crisis and all that stuff. Maybe some years later they will build more stuff but I doubt it right now. Abu Dhabi are developing in a much more consistent and steady way so crashes wouldn't be as hard as in Dubai.

I like these white dots! they make good impression of the stars! A thing that would be awsome is that they could glow at night.

omfg! This is such a massive project! I actually like it and I think that I'd like to see it one day. And they're only of the 63rd level! Wtf! Maybe they just looks big because of their shape but no doubt that they're pretty big. They nearly as tall as the ESB.

Updates from the developer
http://www.sorouh.com/microsites/New...un_Towers.html




I think the tallest tower will be something like 310m not 379m.

In fact, this photo is so rediculous and shows in an exaggerating way what they actually do in the emirates. They build these monsters in the middle of nowhere somewhere in the dessert. Anyway, amazing.

Massive. Should fit in better as soon as the surrounding area is developed, but I don't know how fast that would happen in today's economy.

In some of the pictures it looks so strange how they're rising in the middle of a desert.

From the 7th of June. Around 310m for the tower sounds right. Would be good to get some confirmation of this.

Also the the smaller 6 towers to the side are also starting to rise.

Another nice ariel update of the area.
The following pics were taken and posted by Bustet in the UAE section.

The "small" towers are kind weird. I think another design would've been better but they're pretty cool nonetheless. I feel like the facade should've had a smoother look to it, just like the Guangzhou Twin Tower West.

The landmark Sky and Sun Towers, marking the entrance of SHAMS Abu Dhabi, have been 'topped out', meaning that the structures have been completed on both buildings.

Both buildings are now at their full height, with the Sky Tower registering 74 stories and Sun Tower at 65 stories. The buildings are officially the tallest structures in Abu Dhabi today and act as a visual reference point and gateway to SHAMS Abu Dhabi.

Progress on the development continues apace with the majority of the installation work on both the curtain (ie exterior) walls and Sky Pods both completed.

The ground floor slab, Mezzanine level and Level 1 and 2 of the Podium (which will be home to retail, leisure and business facilities) have now been finalised. Levels 3 and 4 are now 90% and 76% complete respectively. Overall construction work on the Podium is now 82% complete and on track to be finished in August.

The internal fit-out of both buildings is also well underway, with meticulous detail being paid to the finishing of the interior partitioning, floor, ceiling and mechanical engineering, meeting the highest standards that Sorouh customers have come to expect.
