CTBUH mentions Jeddah Tower in there global news section and links to this article:

http://arabnews.com/saudiarabia/article578390.ece

it is the same as we had a page before, but it's nice to see that ctbuh links to it.

I wonder why they want to build such a nice structure in such a dirty city. The municipality should look at cleaning the city first. Also as KSA is a closed country there will be few people who can go to view it. At least Dubai is free to enter.

I also think Jeddah will develop beautifully. Especially that the Kingdom Tower will be part of a bigger development.

And I wouldn't call the city dirty either. Although, I saw it from pictures only, it seemed charming. Not ultramodern (yet) but cozy and nice.

And I will definitely visit Jeddah once the Kingdom Tower is under development/finished together with Jordan. Yes, I would need a visa to enter, but that's ok.

JEDDAH IS THE GATE WAY TO MAKKAH, MILLIONS LAND HERE. TRY TO REMEMBER THAT SAUDI IS OPEN TO 2 BILLION MUSLIMS AROUND THE WORLD. NOT TO MENTION THE LUCKY NON-MUSLIMS WITH THE VISA TO ENTER.
