"Kingdom Jewel Tower", eh? For a moment there I thought "Jawhrat Al Mamlakah" was Arabic for "Fortress of Solitude"...

nothing beats out KAFD at the moment in Riyadh
this project was first announced in 2005 or something , I hate to say this but it's probably dead by know, along with a long list of other projects on the same commercial strip ( al-rajhi tower immediately comes to mind ) . I don't know why , but they say it's because of the airbase near by , they're working on it though .
