Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi, a luxurious five-tower development by Shaikh Suroor Projects Department (SSPD), is on schedule for handover towards the end of the year, its Project Director Sami Abdul Aziz Al Khuwaiter told Gulf News.
However, the exact date of its opening has not been decided yet, he said.
Standing as high as 300 metres on half a million square metres, the reported Dh2.5 billion project will be the city's latest new skyline addition this year.
Until the end of June construction was about 97 per cent complete, Al Khuwaiter told Gulf News.
Constructed by the Arabian Construction Company and designed by Design By Innovation (DBI) Australia, the project which was launched in 2006 is expected to attract "thousands" of visitors once it opens its doors. The project is made up of three residential towers, one office tower and a five-star hotel and furnished apartments, including a boutique retail arcade. The hotel will be operated by Jumeirah under the brand name Jumeirah at Etihad Towers.
The three residential towers, which offer a total of 885 apartments and penthouses ranging from one to five bedrooms, are already available for lease. Jumeirah at Etihad Towers will also have 382 hotel rooms and suites, 199 serviced apartments in addition to several amenities, including a spa.
The commercial tower has over 54 floors with a high-capacity car park, professionally managed reception areas, concierge and security services.
The development will have its own private beach, in addition to four levels of underground car parking that could handle more than 3,000 cars.
