It is January 2012 here too and I hope they will really start work on Kingdom Tower soon.

I think it can be anyday now, although I really hoped the ceremonial opening will be on the 1st of January.

However, as much as I like the Kingdom Tower, I would bet $1 it won't be finished by 2017.

well according to CTBUH it won't be completed until 2018, and considering the delays which can probably be expected I'd say it won't be finished until around 2019-2020. Also, was just wondering whether I'm the only one who actually likes the platform towards the top of the tower?

Btw I think some of this machines may be pilling rigs in which case we could move it to U/C already. But we need more detailed pics to determine if those are really pilling rigs and not for example slurry walls equipment.
