Ah, thanks. Couldn't remember that the Jeddah tower was also called this name.

note Kingdom Tower will be taller than 1000m, how much is not known yet.

This building however could be raised up to get the title too, but this is only hypothetical, because this building had no new news since fairly a long time. if there is an opponent for the tallest structure its right now only the solar tower if built one day might become tallest structure, but not tallest skyscraper.

Keep in mind this is long term project. They are going to build here quite large city from the scratch. They even have (or have had) to prepare special laws to start even thinking about it. And even though this one is on the last place on the list of the ubertalls likely to be build (after kingdom tower and india tower) I still think it's not dead and and it may be build sometime in the future just probably with different design since current one is rather just an extreme vision not likely to be build (although I would love to see it).

The last information about this project I red here or in the kuwait section was more than half a year back saying that they started works on designing the city which will take one year so the whole 2011. If this is still alive I expect some news on this in 2012.

i guess if we hear from it its because side projects start and stuff. i also think this project was supposed to be build for like 20 years so its in fact a long term thing they tried to plan out. i could imagine if they really build that city infrastructure and stuff that this tower may be redesigned and resized. to say we build a 1001m tower is just promoting this project. also beside jeddah and india tower i think the solar tower may be not too unlikely to be under construction in the next few years.

There is almost nothing certain about this project so it may be a posibility too, but hey after all Kuwait is an arabic country so maybe we will see something tall here. And still I think this tower is more likely to be build than nakheels one.

yeah nakheels one is dead as a doornail, which is kinda said because it was damn massive and awesome, but well.

I updated page 1 of this thread with some rendering. If you know more of high quality, feel free to share (with sources), so I can add them. Thanks.

Hi all.

The other thing that's sad about the Nakheel tower is they had already installed some of the foundation barretts before the axe fell. It was well beyond the design phase.

as much as i would like this building to start (the design is just amazing i mean look at that last render posted and it would be a worthy new tallest) it doesn't seem likely to be starting soon. this project was designed as a long term project and it is still a stale proposal. i don't expect to see any big news on this project for at least another two years. keep in mind that this project comes together with infrastructure that is needed at that location and this tower is the centerpiece of a big concepted citylike project. before that whole thing gets a go there is no chance this tower will rise. Also the funding is unclear, so there is no need to bump this thread unless there are news for it.
