The Al Hamra Tower is a topped out skyscraper in downtown Kuwait City, Kuwait. Designed by architectural firm Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, the tower is the tallest building in Kuwait on completion in 2011 at 412.6 m (1,354 ft). It will also be the tallest sculpted tower in the world.

The tower will include 195,000 m2 (2,100,000 sq ft) of commercial and office space. The building will connect to a five-story retail mall which totals 23,000 m2 (250,000 sq ft) of retail space and will include an integrated theater complex and an 11-story carpark. The tower itself will be built on an 18,000 m2 (190,000 sq ft) construction site.[citation needed]

The Al Hamra Tower will have over 70 floors of office space, a rooftop restaurant and a spa. The shopping center will include a 10-screen cinema complex which will also have IMAX theaters.
