'allo.

just wanted to clear something up for YeMeNi guy: the Islamic elements in this building are very subtle. as you can see, the entire edifice is designed to be very modern and strikingly simple. in the renderings of the building, you'll notice that halfway up the building are several floors of small and interestingly-shapen windows. they represent mashrabiyas, the old carved wooden window covers on old Islamic buildings.

if you look at the Radisson SAS Hotel Jeddah (Saudi Arabia), that hotel has mashrabiya windows on all of the guest room windows. also, Saudi Arabia and Egypt have plenty of old structures that feature these windows.

Khoury's integration of these mashrabiya-esque windows are supposed to remind people of old Islamic architectural elements, while combining them with the bold ideas of the twenty-first century.

hope that helps.

first: how many towers?
second: what are they all doing in one spot?
third: who's the owner? is it a financial complex? cause it gives me the idea that it is, with all the company symbols on top like its a bourse or something?
forth: no word on who's the owner? cause this is a major project, the owner should be braging about it all the time

fifth: the design is a cliche as usual :)

البلدي حول الموضوع، الى اجراء بعض التعديلات على القسائم الناتجة عن القرار وذلك بدمج القسيمتين رقم 1و2 من المخطط المساحي ومساحة كل منهما على التوالي 2000 متر مربع و4000 متر مربع لتكون قسيمة واحدة بمساحة 6000 متر مربع وتعديل حدودها لتفادي المساس بخدمات البنية التحتية الموجودة في موقع المشروع.
وقال انه ستتم اقامة برج تجاري على كامل القسيمة التجارية الناتجة عن عملية الدمج بمساحة 6000 متر مربع وبحسب النسبة المقررة في المنطقة، بحيث يحتوي البرج على فندق لرجال الاعمال بمساحة 10 آلاف متر مربع من المساحة المسموحة بحسب نسبة البناء المقررة للعقار،
amendment of the towers to a single tower
That is my view of the high tower height of this project

Merge coupon 1 and 2 :)
