And capable too. These folks pretty much built Dubai. And we are not talking just about construction workers but about engineers and architects as well.

Great tower! This one will probably be the largest tower in the world for at least a few decades! Great job!

It's still only in the prep stage, probably a few months before the foundation will be under construction

Hello
Does anyone knows if this model is shown an old version of kingdom tower?
Is so similar to Burj Dubai and like it was designed by Adrian Smith.
Or would be the new design?

OLD or NEW ?

To the twits who think that moderators cannot clearly see what tags they have put in these threads, you will find to your shock that adding racist tags results in infractions.

That is one of the early Burj Dubai designs?? It almost looks like it.
