New $160m Dancing Tower for Kuwait
Feb 2, 2009

new $160 million (AED587 million) real estate project is soon to be launched in Kuwait City by Al-Shahed Real Estate Company.

The venture, called Dancing Tower, will consist of two towers of 63 and 50 storeys, which occupy a space of 5,600m2, and will be home to a five-star hotel as well as a number of offices.

The project was announced by Yousif Al-Majed, Al-Shahed Chairman, at a press conference on Saturday. He said the building is likely to take four years to complete.

Majdi Qambar, Al-Shahed General Manager, said that the firm had chosen Atkins, the UK’s largest engineering firm, to work on the construction of the building.

How can the towers be so cheap? We got several towers on 85 m in Copenhagen which cost a few billions kr ($400m) So unfair!

For some locations. It doesn't work everywhere.

Nice design though. Very organic in some respects.
