is this the most luxirous tower in the world? clading it with expensive marble along with carving the windows is one of the most expensive techniques in the world. not to mention that the tower itself costs 950$ miliion which is 300$ million more expensive than burj alarab

I don't think it is the most expensive building ever built,grant it that they are using expensive materials and techniques that are seldom done anywhere else,but there are more buildings out there that had a hefty construction price tag on them that the Al Hamra.Take for example a new stadium built in Arizona(I believe) for a football team that cost well over a billion dollars and that is just a stadium.However,Kuwaitis have to be grateful that such a beautiful and modern edifice is being built in their country.I would kill for my country of origin to be able to built something like the Al Hamra, but it seems unlikely.

He said the most luxurious not expensive, but it's still expensive.
