Commercial Tower at Sharq

Architect Al Jazeera Consultants
Completed 2000


The City Tower is a visual oasis of modern architecture standing proud in the central business district of down-town Kuwait City. Reaching high up into the Kuwait skyline the City Tower is a pinnacle of modern design, with curtain walling and cladding finished in ALUCOBOND® in the colour Dove grey. The tower was designed to be a functional business venue easily identified by the 400 m2 space frame Globe.

The Globe was manufactured and designed by local agents Riham, General Trading & Contracting Company using ALUCOBOND® and was moved as a virtually finished unit into its current location.
The Globe weighs 16,000 kilos and it took eight men two months to install it. The City Tower is now considered a ‘classic’ landmark on the Kuwait skyline; it is unique, eye-catching and instantly recognizable. The City Tower project encompasses everything architects to property developers could wish for. Riham is looking forward to undertaking more individual bespoke structures and creating a modern and interesting vista in Kuwait.
