Hello,

Fayzoon you're from Saudi Arabia,you should know the man behind this project,Prince Al Walid Bin Talal Bin Abdelaziz Al Saoud is not a small time-All Talk-wannabe-businessman,His Highness has a tremendous Financial Firepower,often nicknamed as the "arabian warrren buffett" although he owns only 16% of the project,if his highness wants this KM high tower to go through,it will,one example is the 300M Tower built In Riyad 12 or 13 years ago I believe

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Waleed_bin_Talal

HH is'nt a "roi du pétrole" he started his company Kingdom holding with US$15000 according to him and He's renown for his investment prowess

Hi all.

11 08 06 (my dates are YY MM DD)
The site is on the right. The actual location of the KT will be off shot to the right but you get the idea of what the site looks like.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

11 10 01



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

These are from my collection. Credit to the photogs because of watermarks, otherwise there would be none - WAY too many pics of all the projects I watch to record the photog for each pic ...

Nezzy and Pat aren't far off the mark, are they ...
These are shots of the actual virgin desert though.
(I shouldn't say virgin, there was some soil testing done in May '10 and what looked like some pile testing in Oct '10 by Soletanche Bachy.


Ray.
