And there is no other building in U/C at all. They will build Jeddah Tower in 2021 and what next? Jeddah City won't be ready in 2020 or 2025, look how long does it take to build all plots around the Burj Khalifa it's not fast job.

All the world will be driving electric vehicles by the time Jeddah City is built out. I hope SA is diversifying now.
