I'll only change the Status to Prep if someone provides crystal clear evidence there's actually something going on at the site of KT.

Anyway, as long as it's in its preparation phase, this project will remain in the Proposed section.

well according to the article posted by KingdomTower states that work has started so that means its either Prep or U/C so I guess we should change the title to Prep at least.

Also the source is very reliable and creditable. It's a popular news channel just like al jazeera.

That date from the article as explained is of the tv channel opening. Nothing related to the construction.

Hi there. While I couldn't wait for the next news I started to lurking around and here's set of pics and infos I found.

Most importantly I found pics And apparently preparations for the project last longer that we thought, since first pics are two months old allready. The construction/preparations are divided into stages and one of the forumers on aqarcity where I found pics explained it, but unfortunately he did it in Arabic and not everything is so crystal clear as we would want it to be. I really would appreciate if anybody with proper language skill would translate what he said properly. Here's his post from yesterday:

Quote:
بخصوص برج المملكة دخلت بنفسي الى موقع المشروع قبل يومين ووقفت على الاوضاع وقابلت المهندسين ودار بيني وبينهم حديث مطول كان ملخصه الاتي
اولا : البرج قائم باذن الله وتم البدء في عمل الخوازيق الارضية وحفر مجموعة كبيرة من القواعد لصب المادة الكيميائية المعالجة للتربة
ثانيا : تم تفصيل القواعد الحديدية حيث يتكون العمود الواحد من 150 سيخ حديدي سمك 75ملم وفي الوسط اربعة اعمدة فولاذ صلب على طول القاعدة وشاهدت ذلك بنفسي وهي جاهزة للتركيب بعد البدء في اعمال حفر الاساسات
ثالثا : شاهدت حفار يعد الوحيد في العالم صنع خصيصا في ايطاليا لصالح مجموعة بن لادن يقوم بالحفر لأعماق بعيدة طول البيب الواحد 50 متر وهو موجود في الموقع تكلفته حسب افادة المهندس 12 مليون ريال .
رابعاً : تم تحديد مواقع اعمدة الأساسات وعمل شريط دائري احمر في محيط كل قاعدة وهي المواقع التي تمثل اعمدة الاساسات
خامساً : الشركة المنفذة لهذه المرحلة هي شركة هوتا التابعة لصالح بن لادن وستستمر في العمل الى ان تسلم المرحلة بعد شهرين تقريبا
سادساً : بعد تسليم المرحلة لشركة بن لادن الأم ستبدأ الأعمال الفعلية و حفر الاساسات والقواعد وهي مرحلة البداية الفعلية حيث اشار المهندس الى انه خلال فترة بسيطة ستجد قرابة 24000 عامل ومهندس يعملون على مدار الساعة في الموقع .
سابعاً : جميع الصور موثقة لدي في جهاز الايفون ولو يسمح الوقت لدي ساقوم بتنزيل كافة الادلة ومن يشكك في الموضوع بامكانه زيارة الموقع والتأكد من صحة كلامي
Here's google translation:

Quote:
About the Kingdom Tower entered myself into the project site two days ago and I stood on the situation and met with engineers and me and the house, including a lengthy interview was summarized as follows
First: the tower-based, God willing, have been launched in the work of ground piles, digging a large group of rules for pouring the chemical treatment of the soil
Second, the rules are detailed, where iron column consists of 150 single metal skewer thickness 75 mm in the middle four columns along the solid steel base and I saw it myself and they are ready for installation after starting work in digging the foundations
Third: I saw the rig is the world's only specially made ​​in Italy for the Bin Laden Group, the drilling of deep long-length bib per 50 meters is located on the site as a cost benefit Eng 12 million riyals.
Fourth, was the location of poles and piling work of a red circular bar in the vicinity of each rule are sites that represent the columns of the foundations
Fifth, the company implemented for this stage is a company Huta's Saleh Bin Laden, and will continue to work to the stage to hand over after nearly two months
Sixth, after the delivery phase of Bin Laden's mother will begin the actual work and dig the foundations and rules of a start-up phase where the actual engineer pointed out that in a very short time you will find nearly 24,000 workers and engineers working around the clock at the site.
Seventh: I have documented all the images on your iPhone, even if time allows I will have downloaded all the evidence and the questioning on the subject could visit the site and ensure the authenticity of my words
I'm especially courious of that "hemical treatment of the soil" thing...
Anyways from the information we got and pics which clearly shows pilling works I would say this should go straight to the U/C.

Oh, and the pics, enjoy
all images are curtesy of Azam, user of the aqarcity forum. They were taken on various days of november.
