even if you had seen photos, the plot is quite on the northern edge of the city and quite far away from the other skyscraper projects in the center.

If you want to see some photos of jeddah here is huge photo set by polish forumer from his 2010 business trip. Not particularly beautiful or even spectacular city. Always been a bit impressed that such a big project is taking off in such a place...

Maybe if you can just write about what you saw. I guess its better than no updates at all. We need some update in any form because this is the KING of all the skyscrapers!!!

hey everybody!!
I had a talk with the "my source" last night..and we came across the failed soil test and the whole story came out last year..
what actually happened through 2011 was:
-finishing the "EIA" for the project between September 2010 and March 2011.
-The assessment established a baseline of current site conditions; data regarding ambient air/water/soil quality, background noise levels, meteorological phenomena, and terrestrial habitats and their associated fauna and flora were collected.

In addition, finishing the detailed water circulation study and marine survey of the impact that the canal will cause on Obhur Creek.
and according to these studies and survey's the have modified the master plan.
so basically that what they have achieved through 2011..

So what you're saying is that there actually never was such thing as rumored failed soil test, but rather normal procedure, right?
