Wow, I can't believe how much hi-rise construction is going on in that part of the world. Most of the countries are not dealing with a large population. I wonder where all the materials and workers come from? Should be quite an impressive array of buildings in the future. Thanks Larogue, and welcome to the forum.

Even more daring than Dubai. It's hard to rank these things, though Al Hamrah is striking me as the most spectacular building under construction in the world right now.

BTW-Wherever did that Parkhaven come from again??

Im not all too familiar with this region of the world other than it has vast oil wealth. Is that the driving force behind all these projects? What other ecomonic factors would require such a high level of development, especially in such expensive tall towers? I live in Calgary the energy capital of Canada. The high oil prices have created a strong demand for office space, but definetely not on the level seen in the middle east, and I was wondering why that is.

Kuwait Business Town

The vision for this design attempts to create two tower forms which visually interact with each other as they move upward into the sky creating a dynamic Gateway to the development. Each tower begins at the base as a rectangular floor plate from which the main and side façade twist inwards toward the central plaza. The rear and minor side façade remain at a right angle with each other as this is where the core is located. The resulting play of two minor facades remaining at a right angle while the other two major facades twisting inward will create a dynamic ‘dueling’ interplay of two tower forms that will be strong, unique and unmatched in Kuwait.

Owner :Awqaf Foundation
Location : Fahad Al Salem Street,Kuwait City
Floors/Hight : 40F / ??
Construction Start : 2005
Construction End : ??





KEO has designed a 40 storey Commercial Tower in the main commercial area in Kuwait. The site is located in a very prominent commercial area on Fahad Al Salem Street. The Design reflects the ongoing economic and commercial development
of the country. At the same time the design provides successful resolutions of adaptive design strategies related to the environmental, urban, cultural and functional aspects. Ground Floor and Mezzanine provide retail-shopping areas. Office space is provided in upper 34 floors.

The total built up area is around 17,000m2. Parking is provided in the basement. Some of the benefits of the design include floors without the obtrusive pillar engineering design, which allows for duplex office areas.

new open public space, between the new structures and the existing buildings of Kuwait Business City, will be a lively and active focal point for the entire complex and provide a new access way into the existing building. This space is covered with a lightweight fabric roof and forms part of the overall landscaping of the block.
