The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) recently named the building as a regional winner (Middle East and Africa) in its 2015 Best Tall Buildings Awards. Read the full story.

A public market extends into the base of this 88-story tower, which is located on the site of Abu Dhabi's former Central Market. The building's reflective facade features a wave-like form that is coupled with internal shading to reduce solar-heat gain. The undulating envelope gives way to an array of floor plans that are situated to take advantage of the structure's curved, multi-faceted views.
