Hi Killer.
Site prep is the first stage of the construction phase from a project management viewpoint.
I also have no problem with the forum divisions though.

Hi Castle.
The site looks good and has a nice layout.
I hope it will become as good as Bikes' site, 'burjdubaiskyscraper.com' in the coming years.
It is added to my faves.

I believe we should wait a little time longer to have more confirmation of what exactly is happening at the site

I believe this is getting built for no propose what's so ever in the middle of a dessert. I think they should wait until there skyline is more balance like Chicago's and New York if they want to build it for looks and height. Dont get me wrong its beautiful but last thing we want is another Burj Khalifa..

Lol I don't mind it getting built either I mean its a gorgeous tower but I think its for looks (which is in my opinion unnecessary) and if thats the case then might as well wait until then downtown area/skyline is more denst..

Hi Chi.

I beg to differ ...

Niether Chicago or NY ever made a planned section of the city in a virtually virgin area. Not to say they had no city planning - they both did, but no area was masterplanned with such scale as Downtown Dubai or Kingdom city.

These plans need a centerpiece to help promote sales in the surrounding projects within the new area. That centerpiece being the next WTS helps in this role.

That being said, I think the BK is a fantastic design and a remarkable engineering achievement that could stand alone and I think it will be profitable at some point.
The KT will surely be, as well.


Ray.
