Towers in Kuwait



I really had no idea of the amount of great towers going up there. Some talls too (ie 300m). Maybe their 1km thing isn't bullshit. Here are some of the towers going up there. I picked the ones with the most impressive renders so there are even more. Some lowrise projects too.

For more on this place go here


And now for the towers


Al Hamra Tower, 70F



Waqf Tower 50F



Capital Complex, 70F



Super Block ???? ?F but tall



Gate of Kuwait, ?F



Bukhamseen Tower, 60F



Watya Complex, 40F



Kuwait Business Centre, 50F



Crystal Tower, around 50-60F



Al Safat Tower, 34F



AGS Towers & Hotels



Aldow Tower, 34F



Kuwait trade centre, 55F



Al-Mulla Commercial Center, 32F



Kuwait Business Town



Central Bank Of Kuwait H.Q, 42F



ADNREC Tower, over 70F



Alraya Office Tower, 56F



Pearl Tower, ?F



alDeira Tower, 30F

Lovely towers. The Capital Complex and Cristal Towers attract my attention and the new Central Bank is a nifty building.

Great towers! my favourites are Super Block and the crystal tower..Al Hamra is a jewel , I don't even mention it..
BTW AL mullah 's shape is very original but the design is not appropriate

Anyway...GO KUWAIT!!!!

Now that Iraq isn't really a threat anymore, they can invest in flashy things back home.

BTW nice towers
