Once again, there is already a thread on the King Abdullah Financial District in this section : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1232321

The search function is working properly. Everyone should make an effort to use it before posting. There is no excuse that suplicates need to be posted within the WDN section. This is also not the first time you have done this recently, and you have not answered any of my queries in the other threads. I will seriously consider reporting you to the section's mods if you choose not to respond once again.

But if there are dedicated threads in the WDN already for specific, major projects, then this is not the place to put them again. It's duplication. Otherwise, there is no need for individual project threads if everything belongs to a city compilation thread.

But there already is a general King Abdullah Financial District thread in the WDN, which would encompass all the projects in there, including the convention centre. If you have enough content to separate it out into a dedicated thread, you should talk to that thread's creator and frequent users to do it efficiently and effectively in order to reduce duplication and enhance searching by other forumers.

The bottom line is the WDN comprises multiple sections for good reasons and the same project should not be cross-posted into a generic project thread if there already is a dedicated thread.

Exactly. If there is a pre-existing thread in the WDN already for a specific project, all the updates should go in there. Otherwise, why would there be a thread on it in the first place?

That's funny. I see it as the other way around. The timings of my posts are all consistent throughout the night :
Taipei 1730
Macau 2051
- you post
Chengdu 0021
Vancouver 0033
- you post
Mumbai 0110
Hong Kong 0137
- you post
Guangzhou 0153
- you post

None of the information I posted has been duplicated in the other WDN sections, whereas you have duplicated items. I'm more curious what is your rationale for posting, and why you are posting after me instead.

I've got all the facts, and I've provided some of it above, with plenty more available. We can take this offline with the mod team in the WDN section. I can make a very strong case about your post duplication as well since these all tie together.

Henning Larsen designs new towers for Riyadh's financial district

Within a new financial district in Saudi Arabia’s capital city, the Crystal Towers are located in a unique location between the Financial Plaza - the financial centre of the masterplan - and the Wadi - a verdant pedestrian thoroughfare. The orientation of the two 18 and 26-storey Crystal Towers creates a visual and physical link between these elements which feature prime office and retail facilities.

The two towers are connected through a raised podium that allows direct passage between the Financial Plaza and the Wadi, creating a clear and dramatic entrance to the lobbies and providing a shaded outdoor meeting area. As the two towers have separate lift cores, the building is well-suited to accomodate two flagship tenants and a number of additional tenants.

Due to massive solar exposure in the desert climate, recessed, scaled, crystalline apertures are calculated to minimise solar heat gain and associated cooling requirements while optimising views to the surrounding plaza and landscape.

To root the building in the region and contribute to a sustainable approach, a light local stone cladding with a long lifetime and low maintenance costs has been used. The project is designed to achieve LEED Certification upon completion of construction.
