well the developer purchased the land plot last year and they demolished all the existing building however since then not a single progress have been noticed over the site nor there was any sort of official public release regarding the project

in the mean time Atkins announced couple of time that they are working on a landmark project in kuwait city

The biggest tower has a huge spire or whatever it is. I guess it's something around ~300m?
