high hopes, poor results

al-sawaber housing complex built in 1977 is an important project to take the natives and especially middle-income families back to kuwait’s center.

it was initiated as a political gesture to offer common outdoor areas, large parking spaces and shading solutions for harsh summer sun and sandstorms. 

one of the reasons of its failure is that it’s owned by the government and doesn't have any association owners which ended up as a poor social fabric.

after some tenants started to sub-lease the units, low-income expats started to move in.

the building maintenance is also badly done and has been partially built which means the structure is under the threat of demolition.
