Midfield terminal building will be an architectural landmark


Abu Dhabi: The Abu Dhabi Government has approved the construction of the Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC), part of a $6.8-billion (Dh24.95 billion) expansion plan for the capital's international airport.

Abu Dhabi Airports Company (Adac) announced in a statement yesterday that it has received approval from the Executive Council for the construction of the MTC, which is planned to become the primary gateway for airlines operating to Abu Dhabi and the future home of Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE.

"The Midfield Terminal Building is expected to go live in the first half of 2017," the statement said.

It's already under construction AFAIK.
You can see the new terminal's foundations dug up on google maps: http://maps.google.com/maps?ll=24.45...55&sspn=0.004473,0.013797&t=h&z=15

Certainly looks well advanced if it was only approved yesterday; looks as if the piling was done some time ago
