Are some of these buildings already open or do they plan to inaugurate the whole complex at the same time?

I think most of the short towers look terrible. The two supertalls however are stunning in my opinion. Looking forward to seeing them finished.

From this angle the tower looks a little like the Ping An International Finance Center. I love the design.

Towers like these going up without much notice really show that the real skyscraper age is just starting. Soon cities will have os many supertalls that they'll end up looking like this:



Some asian cities already look like this, just with much more color:

Can you access this link? http://www.bncbulletin.com/pgs/prjbu...e474/index.htm

They are reputable industry portal, the data are produced by the source (companies involved) themselves.

This is a pretty big building if CMA will occupy all of it. There are less than 100 CMA regulated/authorised firms in KSA.
