Hi guys -

Here's a great update by an active member of the Kuwait forums; the towers have reached higher heights and there is noted progress on the exterior cladding. Sadly, the cladding looks quite cheap and tacky but hopefully more of it will change that... We shall see.

Also, can we change the name of this thread? The office tower's name is Burj Alshaya and the hotel portion is Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya, so "Burj Alshaya and Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait at Burj Alshaya" would be great. The tower's heights are also 45 stories and 25 stories respectively.

Thank you.

- K

Hello there -

Here are some updated renderings of the final concept that is currently being built. There are some slight variations in the glass, detailing [see the tops of the buildings compared to the older renderings] and in the design of the entrance/pool canopies. It's more refined and should hopefully look good upon completion in early 2016.

Also, can someone PLEASE revise the heights in the title? The tower heights are 46 floors for the office tower and 25 floors for the Four Seasons Hotel.

- K

Quick update from this morning. When I checked yesterday afternoon, the Four Seasons building [the smaller one] had ten floors that were lacking cladding but they were up to nine this morning. Looks like the Hotel might make that late 2016 opening after all, but the office building looks like it needs more time yet.

[Can one of the mods please edit this thread title to reflect the 45 floors in the office tower and 25 for the hotel, please? The office tower will also be 205 meters tall.]
