Some members claim that soil testing has started on the plot ... I will be back to Dubai soon this week will make sure of that and come back to you guys with hard evidence of it.

To early for boards. The design isn't ready and of course there is no contractor chosen yet.

Just a silly conspiracy theory, but how would one secretly, but openly de thrown the Kingdom Tower from tallest building in the world while it's already being constructed.? Well for starters say your building the highest commercial tower in the world, and by the way it's only going to have a flat roof, with no spire, or roof features.

Now do we all remember how high the original spire/crown on the NHT was? It was at least 250-300 meters high.

Now look how much height you can get from just a well thought out crown/spire. You can increase that spire/spike on the top by at least a few hundred meters more. The top feature can even be made out of a lighter material than metal, or aluminum. The crown can be made in secret while the superstructure is in progress, and who better to know how to pull this trick off than to hire the architect who's already working on the Kingdom Tower.

I don't expect a World's Tallest, nor anything close to beating the Burj, but a solid Megatall, maybe even getting close to 700m will make me already really happy

That is what I was thinking lol. We know assuming it is built it will be a tall building, so let just hope it gets started.

What worries me is that a new (financial) global or regional crisis might be in the horizon

Gabriel900, I hope you're right. For my edification, in what ways would you say Dubai is better prepared?

I am starting to get worried about the project. In December they said it was ''a matter of weeks'' until the renders will be released. That was more than 8 months back! And now, they really believe in completing a 600m+ tower
in 4 and a half years? In Dubai the piling already takes very long
