KIPCO Tower is located in the financial district of Sharq, neighboring Al-Shaheed Tower and City Tower, and has come to be known as one of the most innovative and industrially distinguished structures in Kuwait. The tower is a mixed-use project comprised of office space, residential apartments and commercial and retail space. This project, a major addition to the skyline of Kuwait, consists of three main elements The first of these is a striking, 60 storey, mixed use office and residential tower, dominating a major intersection in the city. The second element is a five storey podium which houses a shopping mall, plus a two and a half level basement, accommodating both services and car parking. The third element consists of the 7 floor, main car park – two levels of which are below ground.
A central plant for the entire project is provided at basement and podium levels. Provision exists to enable the services for the retail areas to be metered independently from those of the tower, to allow separate operation of the mall should this be required. The work within the site included both hard and soft landscaping of the areas between the podium and the street. KEO provided Design Reviews, Project and Construction Management Services.
