i dont know if it the same project !!
as a result of a winning entry in an international design competition, NORR has been awarded a landmark office and retail complex in Amman, Jordan.
Over the next 3 years, NORR's scope of work will include architecture, interior design, structural, mechanical, electrical and construction supervision services. This 34-storey twin tower project, located on a steeply sloping site in downtown Amman, is unique in its introduction of landscape and water elements within a shared public atrium.
The project, owned by the Nuqul Group, will be one of the tallest structures in Amman on completion in 2008.

Amman needs such a project to liven up the city more, it's missing a few sparks especially at night.

Abdali to take wraps off Amman redevelopment
by Dylan Bowman on Wednesday, 10 October 2007
Jordan’s Abdali Investment and Development on Tuesday said it will unveil the second phase of its redevelopment of downtown Amman at next week’s Cityscape expo in Dubai.
The Abdali New Downtown real estate project is one the kingdom’s largest mixed-use development projects, spread out over an area of 44.7 hectares.
The $3 billion project will include residential apartments, office space, commercial and retail outlets, as well as entertainment and leisure facilities.
The second phase of development covers an area of 14.7 hectares and will feature mid to high-rise buildings, luxury residences, offices, hotels, commercial entertainment, as well as private parks.
Once complete, the second phase is expected to house around 40,000 residents and accommodate 50,000 visitors a day.
Phase I of the project is scheduled for completion in 2010 and phase II in 2013.
Abdali said the construction progress in phase I, the make up of which is similar to that of phase II, is well underway and that 80% of developers are currently undergoing substructure works and 50% are scheduled to start concrete works by the end of the year.
