Stellar Tower to dominate skyline in Abu Dhabi as a tribute to Zayed :: Gulf News
The 255-metre Stellar Tower in the centre of the city will house shops, offices, a restaurant and a 300-bed hotel. . . . The building will have a wide base - with conference and leisure facilities surrounding a large octagonal atrium - along with a narrow stem and a wide top. James Thomas, a partner at Make and the building’s lead architect, said Stellar Tower was designed to act as a memorial to Shaikh Zayed. . . . “Stellar Tower will be a green building, with sea-water cooling and with wind turbines at roof level to provide half the building’s power. People are realising that there has got to be a sustainable way to create buildings in the Middle East,” he said.
