The above picture looks sick and I cant imagine how its going 2 look after the completion.
If you go to the first page you can get an idea by looking at the render. I think it's a great and very original design and it just happens to be at a stage when you're seeing a massive amount of bare concrete which may look a little peculiar but when when the top is completed it's going to look very bold and futuristic.

It's a beauty - i just hope there will be a few more tall buildings to balance the skyline a bit.

So you do not think that 330 meters is very tall? And it is 330 meters of structure, not 250 meters plus a 80 meter decorative antenna like some fake supertalls outhere.

There are only about 10 completed buildings in the world with rooftops of its "mainstructure" over 330 meters.

Stunning view! With the ruling Al Hamra Tower and many more highrises in the making, Kuwait City will have a Tier I skyline soon.

Buildings in Dubai or in Kuwait are surely better than bullshits like your GENEX Tower.

This tower has grown on me quite a bit. I really like the shape now. I hope the glass doesn't look thin and cheap.

Saw this one today in the flesh and it is turning out just epic. The cladding is first rate (mirror finish) and it looks massive already. It ain't no entry level supertall, it's got serious presence (down partly to it's bulk). So when that cladding goes up further it's going to be quite simply stunning.

Great skyline pics and diagram btw, I think few people realise just how spectacular the Kuwait City skyline evolution has been over the last few years, and there are some more stunners in the works, so not done by a long shot yet.
