Fahaheel bags architecture award
Kuwait City, March 31, 2008
Kuwait has bagged the top award for best architecture for its iconic Fahaheel waterfront (Al-Kout) project, developed by Tamdeen Real Estate Company.
The Al-Kout –Fahaheel Waterfront was selected from 13 nominations from nine Arab countries.
The award will be presented by the Award Foundation of the Arab Towns Organisation during an official ceremony that will be held in Qatar in April.
This wide-ranging project based in southern Kuwait’s Ahmadi province, has contributed greatly to the vital development of Fahaheel’s city centre. The project was instrumental in helping the city to become an important economic entity in Kuwait, with a distinct architectural and cultural identity.
“It is a great honour to be the only Kuwaiti company representing Kuwait in this important Arab competition. We believe that our achievement belongs to Kuwait and this recognition indicates the growth and development in the real estate sector in the country,” said CEO of Tamdeen Mohammed Jasim Al Marzouk.
Fahaheel waterfront (Al-Kout) project is a commercial, cultural and entertainment project. It is situated along the 1.6-km traditional Fahaheel fishing harbour combining the natural beauty of the sea with complimentary building architecture design which is a central feature of the community.
The Award Foundation of the Arab Towns Organisation, based in Doha, also presented additional awards for 'The Architectural Heritage Award,' and 'The Architect Award.' – TradeArabia News Service
