He didn't say it should occupy the whole block, just that it should be in the middle. Right next to the plot they have, middle between the roads, is a hideous lowrise and a small empty plot. You are saying that is so much more valuable than the plot they have now?

what I was trying to say is that the kingdom tower is built on the whole land between the two roads,which is very costly as the land is much larger than this plot.And,I guess, the inner plotes are not big enough to accomodate the tower of this size and height.

This design is far better than anything in KAFD.

This is U/C, it needs to be moved to the right section.

The guy there told me that they just finished cleaning and will start digging again. He said it's going to be under construction soon

The few machinery left are removing the path that leads down. I'm not an expert, but I kept asking myself how would they get out of there when they are done
