Are you puzzled cause my posts includes positive and negative infos about Jeddah at once? Oh yes, unlike you I'm not biased and see things how they are (positive or negative).

Jeddah really have sewerage problem - fact, the guy was right, but it's not related to Kingdom Tower (which you should tell him instead of calling him kid). And nothing contradicts here, even if you don't get it.

The main argument was about jeddah and it is thread about Jeddah's project. You still think you are in Burj Khalifa thread or what? Dubai is offtopic here.

I don't think that's the exact shape of the core simply because it's too soon for bottom slab. But I agree those borders most likely more or less represents the the core. Notice how there seems to be left space for the wings on three sides of that place and the rest is occupied by the equipment. I think those lines may be simply temporary borders for the location when they currently are working on piles.

And I know how to detect an informative post. This isn't one.

Yup! Nice catch! I guess it's obvious, but KT's design not really original, it's just another one "The Shard". Unlike, for example, Emirates Towers complex, which is a true paragon of style!!!
Some of KT's elements are resembling The Citadel:

Kingdom Tower may look like shard but its design is far from it. The shard is close to rectangle in section and has no wings. It is pretty much classic building - just tapering.



And this is Kingdom Tower.




It's more a copy of other three wings structures like Burj Khalifa or... Ryugyong Hotel, but definitely not a Shard

Please, people... This thing is still a wet desert dream - definitely not "U/C" - preparations at best.

Erbse, foundation construction means u/c. There's one mod that could post something like that but I'm really surprised to see it coming from you. I thought you know rules of thread statuses. And the status of this thread should especially be clear after all the discussions we went through. It really seams that some mods don't read threads they moderate.

And the pics posted by Rody. There's absolutely no doubt this tower is U/C.
It's a mega project, but it's happening right now!

Patrykus: I'm not moderating anymore.


In addition, I haven't seen convincing evidence there's actual construction work going on. If have some, please share.

And what do you know about 'convincing evidence there's actual construction work going on'?



.... I mean, if what's posted isn't than you certainly don't know what is.
