This would be the first real monster, without a tall spire. The design is amazing and unique, if this tower was to come back would be among the greatest news that can happen this year. But we all have our doubts.

Very true. This design was always my favourite together with nakheel tower. Let's see what will happen this year.

Hi, I am new to the forum and interested in this project. Does anyone know how serious is this whole city? Also, if it is under construction, anyone has any pics of the project?

A can imagine a giant feather hanging on the top...

When a strong wind comes, wouldn't that thing brake?

This is one of the least likely 1000m towers to start. It hasn't had an update for years and seems like it's laid on ice for good.

the project is still valid, but the construction will be finished in 2035. The bridge will link Kuwait City to the island to Bubayan delayed

This thread better be archived. The crude oil price will not allow to build this tower anymore.

Check out google earth! I saw something peculiar when I zoomed in, something like spilled red things all over the site! There is hope that Silk City might as well be real after all.

It doesn't look like 600m because it will be 1001m.

Update from Kuwait: not for a while yet - the whole City of Silk is on indefinite hold, so the bridge as it stands is just a bridge to northern nowhere. It might cut travel time from around 90 minutes around the bay to 17 minutes across the bridge, but it's also a toll bridge so most truck/equipment drivers won't be too inclined to fork money over for access in a country where the concept of tolls doesn't exist.

In any case, I hope that the bridge spurs activity to the north and gets things going sooner than later. We're just over a year away from opening so not much longer to go.
