The Central Market Project is a complex of three skyscrapers, one of which is a “supertall”, that are under construction in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.[2] Construction of the three towers was scheduled to end in 2010, with a total project completion date of 2014, including the Emporium and The Souk and the four-star Marriott Courtyard Hotel and five-star Marriott Renaissance hotel.

The Domain Tower[edit]

The tallest building, The Domain Tower,[3] is set to become the tallest building in Abu Dhabi and the skyscraper with the most floors in the city upon its completion in 2013/14.[4] The residential building will stand 381 metres (1,250 ft) tall and contain 88 floors.[5] The complex contains a shorter office and hotel building, which also will be among the tallest in the city.

The Trust Tower[edit]

The office tower, called the Trust Tower, is planned to rise 278 m (912 ft) and have 59 floors, with projected completion in Q2 of 2012.[6]

The Hotel Tower[edit]

The shortest building, the Central Market Hotel Tower, will stand around 65 m (213 ft) tall and house 16 floors of hotel space.[7]
