Anyone knows what will be the real name of this tower? "Kingdom Tower" cannot be its real name, just an english translation or interpretation.

My vacation in Jeddah will be booked no later than 2017! Saudi Arabia is a great country and the human family one big team!
Well, comparing a skyscraper to the Apollo mission is a bit too much, but then I agree that there are some big advances lately.

Google Translate says this "برج المملكة" translates to Kingdom Tower.

yes that's right ,you can pronounce the arabic words in english just like this "burj al mamlakah" and the first word "burj or برج" means tower just like burj khalifa "برج خليفة"

Someone needs to talk to whoever is administering the Kingdom Tower Facebook page. They talk as though it's already under construction.

Yea but there's no real need for the buildings, half the buildings in Dubai (for example), if not most are empty, (i dont know about saudi arabia) why build them if no one will live there?

A 1000m tower is cool and all but not really necessary. NYC, Chicago, Shanghai, Hong Kong etc. build skyscrapers based on need, that need being the fact that there are millions of people everywhere.
