Yes, it's very beautiful. BTW, all these new towers in Kuwait, are they all clustered together or just placed anywhere in the city?

It would be great if someone could post a kuwait boom thread so we can see everything going on there. There's loads of stuff that we've never heard about. Some talls, and great looking too

Al Hamra Tower will be 400M not 360M

Ahmadiah Contracting and Trading Company has started construction work on two skyscrapers – Al Hamra Tower, a 400-m high 70-storey building, which will provide a built-up area of 300,000 sq m and Arraya 2, a 56-floor, 300-m high tower, which is located next to the recently completed Arraya Tower in Sharq.
