Did anyone here notice why did they start in the 1st day of 2012 ?



Simply, to say to everyone who asks them about getting late in the project : "WE JUST STARTED IN 2012 NOT 2011"

Jeddah is right next to the sea. And 1km above sea level isn't really hard to breath it. On mountains its just colder and a bit windy. Other than that no difference to sea level

Mexico City has a minimum altitude of 2,200 meters (7,217 feet) above sea level. I hope you were trying to be funny because the last time I was there, I didn't see a single oxygen mask. For comparison Jeddas Elevation: 12 m (39 ft)

Unfortunately, I think i massive amount of 3000-4000 footers won't be seen, because the cost to build is tremendous, and there is little need for buildings that tall. Granted, there could be a couple. Maybe even one above a mile, but a proliferation of buildings at that height seems pretty unlikely.

Hi All,

I am friends with an excellent paper modeller, and the other day I asked if he would make the Kingdom Tower. He is a bit of a perfectionist so he said that he would consider it, only if I can come up with sections and floor plans. Are there any detailed architectural plans for this building that have been released yet? If so, can I get a look at them?

Thanks so much in advance

Nic

I wonder how many of the megatalls will actually be built by 2020, some just have to pull a Pentimonium or Burj Al Alam and be cancelled.
