‘High quality’ residential projects at Sawaber location

KUWAIT: Chairman of the structural plan committee at the Municipal Council Ali Al-Moussa said the new plan for Al-Sawaber Complex requires demolition of the old buildings and establishing new high-quality residential projects. He said the area will be opened up with the construction of a new road, and is designed to attract commercial projects in the area and revive it.

During a workshop held by the committee on Sawaber, Moussa said the construction plan of Kuwait City 2030 includes many development projects including Sawaber, which covers an area of over 38 acres in the middle of the city. He said the current residential complex is dilapidated and highly crowded. He said the council recommended a second phase to study the capital and that began in 2010, and the project proposed that the area be reorganized and changed into a commercial one for offices and services with the same construction percentages and heights.
