If all these projects that are currently on hold, were built. Jeddah and all of Saudi Arabia would be full of SkyScrapers =D
I hope that happens soon in the future..

appearantly this project is not dead, AL-Sho'ula Co' have submitted their papers again to Jeddah Municipality under the following details:

Project Name: Jeddah Tower & AL-Shoula Hotel


number of floors:
-Tower 1 (residential & office spaces) : 100 floors (452 m/roof, 512m/to spire)
-Tower 2 (World Class 5 stars Hotel) : 30 floors (167 m / total)


Site area: 100,000 m2. (it means that the site is actually between the Hilton "from the south" and Mirage Tower "From the North"!!!)


Total built up area: 496,000 m2.

Project Cost:
-Tower1: USD 2.2 Billion.
-Tower2: USD 2.4 Billion. (including the main landscaping, the Marina)


The project comprises a subway above the sea level to connect the towers with an "extravagant" area on the coastline directly, used as a marina for yachts.

it's crazy how it was on hold for the financial situation and now its back and the first thing they did was increasing the height. also it has an amazing location directly inside the city, just imagine pictures of jeddah's skyline with deep in the background seeing the tallest building of the world

since they have "re-submitted" their papers again under the name (Jeddah Tower & AL-Shoula Hotel) I believe that Sama-Dubai is not involved in the project anymore (the project was on-hold due to the financial difficulties Sama was facing, as AL-Shoula is doing good in the last 3 years and lately won a big chunk of the High speed train project)

the site area is 100,000 so the site alone costs USD ~1 billion ( USD 8000-12000/ m2) which "I believe" justifies the high cost.

The location is on the Cornish Road, directly to the north from Jeddah Hilton, and it's few hundered meters away from other divelopment on the cost line, such as:

- Lamar Towers (301 and 350 m) (U/C)

- AL-Mada Towers (2 X 358 m) (PREP)

- The Headquarter (243 m) (U/C)

- The Diamond Tower ( 432 m) (U/C)

- AL-Jawhara Tower (AKA Damac Tower) ( 211 m) (U/C)

- Mirage Tower (280 m ) (APROVED) <---this one is directly next to this project.

-Jeddah Kimpinski Hotel Tower (260 m) (U/C)

-Jeddah Icon (535 m ) (Proposed)

and some other approved and proposed towers.

I made a thread for it in the Saudi section, still proposed though, but it's good to see that the developers of that plot are aiming for more than half a kilo

For supertalls in Jeddah, there are also the Lamar Towers, the Diamond Tower, and possibly the Nawras Towers.

New Renderings that was recently revealed which means this project was never dead and it's underway to get built soon






















The design for Dubai Towers – Jeddah is an iconic multistorey elegantly proportioned skyscraper, providing over 450,000m2 of gross built-up area consisting of offices, 5 star hotel, serviced apartments, residential apartments, spa, ballroom, marina and a retail podium with three underground parking levels.

The residential tower and office tower are both dynamic and elegant, rising 360 meters and 140 meters respectively.

The 82 storey residential tower lies towards the north side of the site, and will contain the hotel, serviced apartments and residential apartments; the 23 storey office tower, lies towards the south side of the site and will contain the offices.

The two storey podium will contain the retail, ballroom, services and lobbies serving the towers.
Source

Hopefully they will raise the height a bit! but yeah at least it has a beautiful design
