The Crystal Tower: Kuwait’s new landmark

The Crystal Tower is an office and multi-purpose building that has been built in the commercial quarter of Sharq in Kuwait City. With its elegant and modern design, the high rise building has already become a new landmark of the city.

250 m high tower with 52 floors

The 250 m high building has 52 floors, three of which will accommodate a shopping centre. The skyscraper also includes a seven story parking garage with a total surface of 9,500m ². The DSI licensee Kuwait Prospects Company was awarded the full structural design and execution contract for the car garage, where seven floors were executed using a post-tensioning system. The 18 cm thick flat slabs in the car park are supported by prestressed girders with spans of 25 m. A total of 600 bonded strand tendons with flat anchorages were used for prestressing the girders and slabs.
