The Landmark is another one of Abu Dhabi’s spectacular buildings standing at 1063 feet with 72 floors. The building was designed by an American based architect company Pelli Clarke. The building is spread across over 150,000 square meters of space and includes up to 35 floors of commercial space. The rest of the building has been assigned for residential apartments which include luxurious living conditions with fitness centers, outdoor pools and a sky garden. The tower is located right in the middle of the Abu Dhabi city and is close to the famous Corniche stretch and the Adia building.
The tower is visible from all sides of the Abu Dhabi skyline and offers a panoramic view of the Arabian Gulf from the very top. The Landmark is a remarkable structure because the architects made sure that the building was environmentally sustainable and suited to the Abu Dhabi environment. The screens on the tower have the design of unfolded petals in a flower and this keeps the building cool during hot and humid weather conditions. There are also garden terraces in the lower levels of the building, which keep the inside of the building naturally cool. The glass panels in the building reflect the sun rays away from the inside so that those inside the building will not feel the heat outside.
