I agree.....I makes me happy to see when a place is going to be built with something that represents them, that is unique to them.

X-posting updates from the Kuwait sub-forum:

- The final concept will consist of two towers: one will serve as the Alshaya headquarters and will be up to a maximum of 42 stories while the other will be the Four Seasons Hotel at 20-25 stories
- The towers will be positioned longitudinally along the site, with the headquarters tower next to Burj Jassim and the Four Seasons on the other end of the site
- The towers will be joined by a four-story retail podium with an open plaza at the front
- The design is very clean and simple; both towers will be solid rectangular blocks with a mix of dark and light glass, but will have setbacks and openings at the top of each
- There will be a metal skin on two sides of each building and they will weave through each other in layers to create a unique visual effect

Construction on the complex is due to begin by the end of this year with completion anticipated by early to mid 2015. The parking facility has already been built and should already have power and plumbing supplied to it.

Source: I used to work with Alshaya and have access to two renderings of the final buildings, but I don't think I can't show them until they are formally announced to the public. I'll see what I can do to get them out here before.

CT
ChaoticTranquility, please confirm the following-

(1) Does this project (Gate of Kuwait Tower) still contain a super-tall?
(2) Has the construction work started?

It's not a gate anymore...

If that's really a new design, then what a disappointment! It's gone from a building that would have genuinely reflected the Islamic character of the region to one that could be built anywhere in the world.

The development has been given another haircut:

No cladding works have started yet but both towers are now around fifty percent of their final height. If they keep this work up, they may just meet their late 2015 completion target.
