What a beautiful building. And this building is as tall as the WTC in NYC were. Is 1350+ becoming a normal height for buildings? Even 2000ft buildings are present now in the world. Is there a limit to what height humans can build to? Amazing stuff!

Wow, time goes fast. I drew it for the diagram several years ago and now it is almost completed!

Is there a recent sharp skyline pic available where you can see how it looks on the skyline?

It wouldn't look bad with a spire, but I think it will look perfect without one.

Kuwait City is gaining quite an impressive and distinctive skyline.

Al Hamra is actually taller than that pointy tower, Liberation tower. I hope this pic has what you're looking for
