That would work too. I was just staring at the pictures and I thought this tower would look much better if it had another tower, or more, being built along with it.

Updates

Opening in June 2013, this unique and glorious vertical community will be a mixed-use development Landmark of 62 stories constructed on an exclusive 20,000 sqm plot in Assahafa District along King Fahd Highway in Riyadh, a very prominent and prestigious business area in Riyadh close to King Abdullah Financial Center and set to create a niche of its own world. A unique architecture and beautiful view. The carefully selected components and thoughtful design will make it one of the most desirable addresses in Riyadh. It would be the nearest luxurious mixed-us property to the KKIA and is well connected by roads and also has the advantage of alternate accessibility. The location is a vibrant residential and business hub, where residents and visitors are to enjoy incomparable 365 days of quality lifestyle a year, an ideal balance of tranquility and modern convenience.


The residential smart exclusive one-of-a-kind compound with Manhattan style apartments are dream come true, an exclusive haven with tranquility in spirit and harmony in design with contemporary living in mind and a variety number of bedrooms. 23 floors (the top floors) dedicated to 260 luxury Manhattan Style smart residential apartments, consisting of LUMIERE (1-bed), MERVEILLE (2-bed), and CHATEAU (3-bed) duplex penthouse, with their own separate entrance and drop-off areas. Effective use of available space and generous light from floor-to-ceiling window creates a sense of space and calm. The scale, the materials, the attention to detail: the mind races to comprehend the floor of input from all 5 senses. Pinch yourself if you need to, comprehend where you are, take your time, those Manhattan Walls aren’t going anywhere. This is more than accommodation, this is SUITE LIVING; and once you're inside its cool walls, the affect is even more dazzling - dare we say ‘humbling’. What you considered the lap of luxury suddenly feels like a bony knee in comparison. One thing for certain, this place is more than an exclusive apartments.

The residential compound will be complemented with an exclusive delivery service extended by ‘Burj Rafal Kempinski Hotel’ around the clock, whether for a mouth-watering meal or a catering for your guests in your apartment or in any of the hotel outlets.

Moreover, the community will extend an exclusive Cigar Majlis and the open garden are a true relaxation haven for smokers, serving the world’s finest cigars, exclusive cigarettes, mezze and snacks . Calm sounds of water flowing give a cooling effect on the warm balmy evening, low level lounge seating comforting young and old alike, in small and large groups while socializing and easing up the pressures of “Capital Living”. Peace and tranquility from the Zen garden are cohesively woven with the shear pleasure of the finest Cuban cigars. And complemented with Restaurants and cafes and recreational facilities. A wealth of choice for you is extended to the residents amenities on their doorstep and encompassing fine dining experiences to informal café culture. Culinary delights and the finest beverages will await you, complemented with immaculate service and breathtaking décor.


Indulge in the serenity of 2 Luxury Spa & Wellness Center managed by Resense on level (6). It’s the renaissance of the classical European spa revival. A fusion of modern and traditional design, art, therapies and bathing; a genuine oasis of tranquility, where stress melts away to make room for newfound energy. It’s inspired by the European tradition for natural cures and therapies, Resense shifts the spa experience from pampering to healing. From the sensual pleasure of body treatments to the invigorating caress of water to the nutritional goodness of natural food and drinks, every element is designed to promote wellness.



The apartments lifestyle living:

1-Bed LUMIERE - 64 sqm

1-Bed LUMIERE - 76 or 79 or 95 sqm

2-Bed MERVEILLE - 110 + 119 sqm

2-Bed MERVEILLE - 162 sqm

3-Bed (Duplex) Penthouse CHATEAU - 310sqm


Cheers

I like the buildings. 8/10. I had always thought Riyadh had height restrictions based on the # of floors though
