It is in Downtown Kuwait City - Sharq Area... but specifically Al Hamra is built on what was known as East Maqwa' before the 1950's, which doesn't exist anymore.

East Maqwa' is an area in Sharg, and Sharg is one of the four main areas of Kuwait city. The Al Hamra is specifically there

a spike would spoil the looks of the tower they should actually extend the higher flare wall and gradually narrow it down to a spike
