"I would've liked it had it been proposed for Dammam!"

On a serious note, this tower looks absolutely stunning - something straight outta some sci-fi movie! I hope it gets built and not at the current exhibition center's site but in the same strip as other skyscrapers.

I know the new exhibition center is currently under-construction in Riyadh, any idea when will it be complete? Because they'll demolish the current one only after the new one is completed.

Sorry guys, it seems another project will be built on the exhibition center lot. This one will be built between Rajhi and Kingdom towers. The exact location is on the old site of Toys R us; just north of Sheraton hotel.

I'm still drooling! Thanks for the latest render.

I don't understand Arabic, so pardon me if I'm saying the obvious but has anyone noticed "Expo & Exhibition Centre" written in the lower-center rendering? Maybe this IS the new Exhibition Centre under construction. Can someone please translate the Arabic text. All I can make out is the figure 128,000 Sq. Meters - which I assume is the area of the site.

Unlike Dubai, the "race" (if you can call that) in Riyadh isn't for the tallest - it's definitely for the sleek-est and coolest!

I'm sure the location is as indicated in the google map above. The arabic text just describes the location, cost and area. One of the renders on the first post is placed on a satellite. You can match some of the land features on google map.

Yes, for a project that would cost $3 billion, it's got to be really high!
