from my own experience ..i can say there is a huge demand in kuwait for modern office towers cause the majority of the buildings in kuwait city are very old, some can't handle DSL internet connections, plus there aren't enough spaces to rent. those proposed projects meet only the current demand without the demand that might come from new investors

Designers for this - and the Crystal Tower - are HOK and OBD. Tenders for the latter are expected in the next three months. For the former, contractors are going to have to wait for 6 months.

That's nice but I haven't heard much info about Tanmiya Tower. I've seen the render but I haven't heard anything else and have they designed a new headquarters building for NBK ?
