Will Heritage Village ever be Completed?

I'm sure most people have seen the block across from Sharq Mall which is supposed to be the location of Kuwait's "Heritage Village". Until now it hasn't been completed even though they started the project in 2007. Does anyone know what happened to it? I tried to contact the real estate company but all the contact numbers and email aren't working. I was really looking forward to it being built and hope one day it can be completed.


They have pictures of what it's supposed to look like on their website (link). I didn't see any updates past 2010.

  2. The project is on hold because there are currently some issues between the Municipality Council and ministers

    The Heritage Village will include pre-oil buildings (several mosques dating back to 1810-1850, Dickson House, pre-oil Diwaniyas) as well as a replica of a pre-oil era neighborhood in Kuwait.
