From the picture showing Al Hamra in the backround, I checked the same view on Google maps, which showed the parking garage completed, and the tower only having completed piling. Perhaps they have done something since, but given the lack of equipment on site, I wouldn't be surprised at all if this was on-hold.

Beautiful tower. Kuwait seems to have mastered the art of building tall futuristic buildings that are both imaginative and classy. Of course, the first thing they did right was hire Norman Foster!

The actual building is finally going up. They're taking their sweet time with the construction. I'll see if I can snap some photos on my way to work tomorrow.

As of Aug 4, 2014

Parking garage long finished. The tower itself has reached ground floor (i.e. basement levels are now complete). So, from the pics, it seems the next construction stage will be the floors above ground level (1st floor, 2nd floor, etc).

Before anyone comments back that there are no workers hence project stalled - do note that the picture was taken at 2:30pm during August - there is an outdoor work ban in effect, in Kuwait, during the summer to protect laborers from the hot (48C/120F) sun. It's a SHE requirement by the Ministry of Labor that all contractors have to abide with.

I like the view of the building from the air - makes it look like a giant butterfly.

After a long time of nothing happening this is actually really fast. I bet a lot of people gave up on checking this thread and think this is still at ground level.
