There's a lot more information on this tower now

The towers are known as Hass Towers

The civil engineering firm hasn't been picked yet but word is that there are 6 Chinese firms tendering for the project.

Understated elegance, sleek and well proportioned structures! Every detail seems well integrated as a whole complex. Vaguely Art Deco-ish....
