Honouring the past, celebrating the future

Great cities need great buildings. Over time, these iconic buildings become visual statements of the era and the place they represent.

Capital Gate, the focal point of Capital Centre, was conceived to provide Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), with a signature tower that signifies the city’s progress and evolution. At the same time, Capital Gate pays tribute to the legacy of His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the late President of the UAE and the Father of the Nation. from the homepage
