I actually like the design a lot. It's simple and classy. Good for Abu Dhabi, but it wouldn't look out of place in Dubai either.

After a closer look, it actually looks a lot like the Index IMO.

Looks like a mix of the Index and Le Grande Arche, but I like it. I also think it fits better in Abu Dhabi then in Dubai...

That's true.

I like it. It's simplistic, which is a nice change from some of the buildings we've seen go up in UAE.

A different, more dignified/restrained supertall building in the Middle East.

This building looks like something straight out of 1970. I love it. It is just missing black glass.....
