Man this building rocks.

Seems better than Kingdom Tower and Burj Khalifa.

Eric Kuhne is a great architect.

It makes kingdom tower look like a joke. The sheer size of the building is monstrous.

Yeah I unfortunately agree. Every time I see a thread like this bumped, I get my hopes up only to realize that there is no new news.

KUWAIT CITY | Burj Mubarak Al Kabir ( Silk City ) | 1001m | 3,284ft | App

Project is going

Quote:
Originally Posted by remy59660 View Post
Madinat al-Hareer (Arabic: مدينة الحرير‎, meaning "Silk City"), is a proposed 250 km2 (62,000-acre) planned urban area in Subiya, northern Kuwait. Upon construction, it would include the Burj Mubarak al-Kabir, a nature reservation of 2 square kilometres, a duty-free area which will be beside a new airport, in addition to a large business center, conference areas, environmental areas, athletic areas, and areas that concentrate on media, health, education, and industry. The City of Silk will also include numerous tourist attractions, hotels, spas, and public gardens. The city will be built in individual phases with total completion within twenty-five years. The development will cost an estimated 25 billion Kuwaiti Dinars (94 billion USD). In May 2014, the Silk City project was on hold.



In June 2014, the Kuwaiti government approved a decree creating a body in charge of developing Silk City and Boubyan Island.[3] Kuwait also signed a cooperation agreement with China for developing Silk City and its economic belt. [4] On June 3 2014, Silk City's final masterplan was approved, the new Silk City masterplan replaces previous proposals.[5] The Jaber Causeway (bridge that links Kuwait City to Silk City) is currently under construction.

The skyscraper is planned to top out at 1,001 m (3,284 ft), in order to reflect the Arabian folk tale collection One Thousand and One Arabian Nights.

Skyscrapers do not normally exceed 80 floors due to the amount of space that would be taken up by elevators. However, the Mubarak al-Kabir Tower would consist of a far greater number of floors. This would necessitate double or triple-decker elevators.

Another challenge would be posed by the immense height of the building, which makes it vulnerable to high winds. In order to cope with these winds, the tower is designed as three interlocking towers, each twisting 45 degrees to help stabilize it. In addition, vertical ailerons will run the full length of the building on each edge. Adjustments to the positions of these ailerons will redirect the winds in order to minimize structural vibrations.

The building will include seven vertically stacked 30-story 'neighborhoods", including apartments, offices, and hotels. Linking the neighborhoods will be several four-story "town squares

copying pasting Wikipedia! Really!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Madinat_al-Hareer

Anw this VISION is old news ... very old news in fact

EDIT: Wikipedia lists meed.com as one of the references, where it states "Kuwait approves Silk City masterplan, New Silk City masterplan replaces previous proposals". So it seems there is a new masterplan which I guess it might or might not include this tower.
http://www.meed.com/sectors/construc...191937.article

Although I would love to see this rise but most probably will stay a vision

The project is real.

The Madinat Al Hareer ( Silk City ) is an artificial island north of Kuwait City. The Masterplan was approved in 2014 ( including a 1001 meter high skyscraper).

Kuwait wants to close the gap to other gulf cities like Doha,Manama, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Jeddah,Ryadh.
