Here's a bit of information to clear things up:
- The supertall Gate concept is NOT going through
- The final, approved concept has been designed by Gensler, the same architects behind The Avenues
- The final concept will consist of two towers: one will serve as the Alshaya headquarters and will be up to a maximum of 42 stories while the other will be the Four Seasons Hotel at 20-25 stories
- The towers will be positioned longitudinally along the site, with the headquarters tower next to Burj Jassim and the Four Seasons on the other end of the site
- The towers will be joined by a four-story retail podium with an open plaza at the front
- The design is very clean and simple; both towers will be solid rectangular blocks with a mix of dark and light glass, but will have setbacks and openings at the top of each
- There will be a metal skin on two sides of each building and they will weave through each other in layers to create a unique visual effect

Construction on the complex is due to begin by the end of this year with completion anticipated by early to mid 2015. The parking facility has already been built and should already have power and plumbing supplied to it.

Source: I used to work with Alshaya and have access to two renderings of the final buildings, but I don't think I can't show them until they are formally announced to the public. I'll see what I can do to get them out here before.
