Guys this is old stuff. The article from soletanche is dated 08/05/2010 (they even mention nakheel tower as alive project ) I'm just not sure about these two photos. But I think I've seen them in this thread some time ago. Buyckske Ruben please just new stuff here. And if I am mistaken please tell us where did you get that pictures from, and how old are they?

[QUOTE=Buyckske Ruben;88476606]More pics and other material...

Construction of piles and barrettes for the Kingdom Tower.

We have just won our first contract in Saudi Arabia. It concerns a preliminary trial involving two piles and two barrettes, at depths of 45 and 75 m, for the Kingdom Tower in Jeddah (this tower will be taller than the tallest building in the world: The Burj Khalifa Tower in Dubai).

These piles and barrettes have been fitted with Osterberg cells that are already being used on the test barrettes for the Nakheel Tall Tower (Dubai) and the Gazprom Tower (Saint-Petersburg).

Construction Photos (Oct 10 2010)

But just posting it because some people are begging if the tower is really underway.
I think we will see new updates soon.



World's tallest tower to begin construction in Jan.

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill, the Chicago-based architecture firm behind the Kingdom Tower, has confirmed that construction will start on Jeddah's 1km-high structure in January 2012.

The part about making impact on the skyline wasn't a refference to Jeddah but to the time when people start noticing a tower
