Broad is a troll developer concerning supertalls. They "started" 3, built none.

Except the one they started (J97) had to be cut down from 349m to 204m because of height restrictions from the local airport.I dont doubt they could build a 300 or even 400m building but I remain more sceptical of their ability to build megatalls,as did the chinese government when they decided to reject J220 Sky city. I guess we just have to wait and see.

I don't think there will be any new megatall towers in China for the forseeable future, it's ok thoe because there is already one complete in shanghai and another under construction in wuhan, plus tianjin and shenzhen have one each just under 600m, that's a good record for any country. The skyscraper boom in China has peaked and is on the way down now, as it enters a different economic climate.

Something good is bound to rise in this prime piece of land eventually. Only a matter of time.

That's a good plan. When a 700+m building is on-hold, re-propose it as an 800+m building.
I notice they switched to a 3-wing floor plan like all of the tallest. That is disappointing, I was hoping for a 700+m square floorplate building.

I liked the old plan more to be true. But bevertheless 838m and 220 floors would be pretty cool.

I prefer the first proposal with both "playstation" design. It is more symmetrical.

Great pics! Hopefully we'll hear some good news about this project this year, would be a pity if it would get cancelled and replaced by a smaller tower.

some of the renders remind me of the Faisaliah Tower in Riyadh. never underestimate a project in a country with a strong economy. the useless iconic tower in Dubai will be made the same way the Mile high kingdom tower was brushed away as a dream but today it's construction is in full swing.

Sa does not have a strong economy right now, and their towers a kilometer, not a mile.

earlier during proposal period, it was given the nickname mile tower. they don't need to do much building to fix their economy, they just need to come up with deal with oil producing nations to halt oil production to increase the price again. however they are letting other economies grow and bask with this over supply of oil. economy or not KSA has one of the largest resource (money, oil, gold ect.) reserves, they need something to spend their money on.

Such a deal, with Russian support, just fell through. But go read that in the news section, this isn't the place.
