I depends on how fast they want to do it. If they used the top down method for the foundation and had a huge number of workers on site, I think that it could be completed in 6 years like the Burj.

Comon, there is even no infrastructure done yet. It is at least couple of years before they will (eventually) start with this one. If any tower higher than BK will be uc in near future it will certainly be Kingdom Tower.

yeah there is no way the construction is going to start soon, isn't there a ton of work to do on creating the land the tower will be on and if so the closest roads to the tower are almost 4km away

I mean, do you actually think that THIS will be built? Even Dubai looks poor compared to this!

******* SH1T !!! That's insane!!

I won't believe it until I see it getting built. And I repeat, I'd like to see more supertalls around the main tower

I doubt they start building this tower if first they don't build some of the buildings around.

When they started Burj Khalifa, a lot of buildings (and infrastructure) was built.

Dubai 2003.

this is the future Kuwait is aiming at, Kuwait as a country has one city only, its a rich country and its population will grow, this is going to happen, but it will take time, as long as the countries around it (Iran, Iraq) don't harm it (again) ...

when kuwait found the "iranian revolution grad" working as spies in high profile jobs in kuwait + the so called "Kuwati hizbullat" which organized the occupation of the mosque in Makkah 10 years ago.... but this is irrelevant

More chance of this getting built then most projects in Dubai!!!!
Most of the projects will be completed in Dubai that have been started if not all of them. This is a completely different scenario though

Sorry to pull this thread up again (looks like there are no current news?) - But what are you referring to when talking about "Kingdom Tower"? I know there's such a thing in Riyadh, but it's already built and doesn't surpass the highest stuff.
