NOT!
I think he was talking about pointless mega projects that are essentially for image and arguably a waste of money. Look at Dubai now. Is it really what it was meant to be?

The building which was designed to be called the Burj Dubai but when all Dubai's main contractors went bankrupt and were bailed out by Abu Dhabi was renamed coincidentally after the Emir of Abu Dhabi.

I bet Dubai is really proud of having his name on their world record. Instead of being a monument to their ambition it's become a monument to their failure.

What are you guys talking about ??

Because of its name change it's a failure or they wish they never built it ?

Oh brother ....

Abu Dhabi may have bailed out Dubai but not the BK.
It just happened to be built during this rocky time - it's not the reason for it .....

No ... I didn't.
I didn't think the comments warranted a hi or a cheers.

Back on topic.
Hoping for some good news soon on this project.

Not yet but even if you don't get everything done it's still better than not trying at all. As someone who has been to Dubai past and present it is undoubtedly a better place now. You know it's easy to dismiss mega projects as just vanity etc, and maybe to an extent they largely are, but they are still at the end of the day beneficial projects for their given cities. Dubai is better off with the Burj Khalifa, and more likely than not the same will hold true here.

SA should just terraform it self into a Rain Forest, or do something similar to Mazdar city instead of building this weird spike onto earth.

so september it is. Let's hope for the best. Also there are rumors in saudi thread it will be taller than 1000m but I'm not sure if any of this may be serious.
