How're they going to keep funding these massive projects when their oil supply dries up? They're clearly not turning to tourism...

That big block in the middle is a bit out of place. It blocks the view of those slender towers behind it. Are there plans to demolish it?

According to this picture it will be gone by completion?

And what is worse is that most Arabs don't get that Oil will soon run out, but more likely new technology will make that dinosaur obsolete before it even runs out. The West, and East, will only require 5 to 10 years to switch to the new technology. That means in less than 10 years the Middle East will lose its main source of income and their economies will collapse. Middle Easterners are NOT KNOWN for their versatility, in fact the exact opposite is true. Without oil money Saudi Arabia will disintegrate like Afghanistan, since the culture is still very tribal. Shia and non Sauds are treated like dirt, and will rise up against the ruling Saud elites, and the country will disintegrate.

Yeah, I know I'm off topic and my words mean nothing to people living in a fantasy, but sadly my words will come true over the next 20 to 30 years. I don't wish this upon any nation, and I hope I'm wrong, but I'm too realistic to assume that anything will change and the Middle Easterners will "wise up".
Such a know-it-all. You've been duly reported.

If you think that posting that on a forum for Skyscrapers is going to change somthing, I think you should go see a doctor. If you want to change somthing, go get a christian mob to follow you into Mecca, and protest, I'll support you by watching you guys on TV, if anyone actualy does goes with you. lol. To make it clear, I don't support any one of you, this is a forum for Skyscrapers, not religion.

It wouldn't have mattered to me had his discontent been restricted to religion. He started off stating a very accurate (obvious but accurate) sentence and ended up bashing a nation of a quarter billion as ignorant, nouveau-riche, and universally hated.

Not to mention the very elaborate demonstration of his knowledge of Saudi society. lol

the whole complex is the complex with the highest floor area, higher than any airport or plane manifacturing. The single tallest Tower i am not sure if it has the largest area, but i think the chances are not bad.
