Whats the name of that spiral tower on the last picture? It looks even better than Turning Torso imo.

Has the alraya tower topped out(without the spire)?

1. the twisting tower is the Kuwait Trade Center ( 45F ).

2. Alraya tower is topped out when you don't count the missing spire

it's a damn sexy slender tower

funny thing , how they fool the people with those almost blank walls...
the concrete clearly shows only 1 window / floor at one side
but after the cladding it looks like there are 5 windows

.

Maybe that side is toilet. 1 window should be enough for a normal toilet.

Wow I see what you say that the one side is a solid concrete wall and only 1 window but the cladding is 'windowey' I am speculating that the solid concrete wall is one ginormous shear wall because the tower is so skinny???
