I used Google Translate and get the translation of the name of the tower. "الحمراء" is translated as "red". Al Hamra probably means red palace or place. Better ask an Arabic speaker.

The "Red Palace" is the name of a different building in Kuwait; an old palace located outside Kuwait City…

Al-Hamra tower is getting built over the old place of Al-Hamra & Al-Firdos Cinema. Al-Hamra means "the red."
I guess it gets the name from Alhambra palace in Granada, Spain, but I'm not totally sure about the exact meaning of the name.
