Saw this in person recently and it's really starting to dominate the skyline, it's got real presence.

I am really happy to read this thanks alot, and sorry for the bad photos... I took them from the Kuwait Towers' viewing sphere, which its windows need to be changed or cleaned, plus, we had a heavy sand storm when I was there so the visability was bad!

Great pictures Thamerium! Kuwait City has a solid looking downtown business district. Very compact and dense.
