The Central Market Project is a complex of three skyscrapers, one of which is a “supertall”, in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.[2] Construction of the three towers was scheduled to end in 2010, though the financial crisis of 2009 pushed the project completion date in 2014. The complex includes two malls, and two Marriott hotels.

Burj Mohammed bin Rashid[edit]

Burj Mohammed bin Rashid is the tallest building in Abu Dhabi and the skyscraper with the most floors in the city as of its completion in 2014. The residential building stands 381 metres (1,250 ft) tall and contains 92 floors.[3] The tower is adjacent to the shorter Trust Tower offices and hotel building, also among the tallest in the city.

The Trust Tower[edit]

The office tower, called the Trust Tower, rises 278 m (912 ft) and has 60 floors, completed in Q2 of 2012.[4] The tower was publicly opened in 2013,[5] and houses leased properties, and the offices of the World Trade Centers Association. It is connected to a Marriott Renaissance hotel via a large mall and a souk, both operated by the World Trade Center.

The Hotel Tower[edit]

The shortest building in the complex, the Central Market Hotel Tower, stands 65 m (213 ft) tall and houses 16 floors of hotel space under the Courtyard Marriott brand.[6]
