Etihad Towers became an instant landmark in Abu Dhabi and a "benchmark" for U.A.E. mixed-use development when finished in 2012, say the submitters. Design of the five towers, with 54 to 75 stories and as tall as 300 meters, draws on key Middle East symbols: an opening blossom, a billowing sail, sailing vessels, a traditional sword, a falcon's talons and a pearl shell.
