what I just understood from this article is that "Kingdom holding company says that the works in this project still going ahead" >> but am sure they are still working on the foundation right now !!

It's not just Jeddah, whole Saudi Arabia is like this. Unfortunately, it's not up to us to decide whether you are allowed to kiss on the streets or drink alcohol. So let's not discuss it here but rather admire this epic enterprise and only that

Looks to be about 190 floors give or take, assuming the former helipad is at floor 157.

am sure no company can construct 2 mega projects like Abraj Al-Bait and this one at the same time >> and am sure when Abraj Al-Bait is finished ( in the near future ) this will just be the real start of this one !!

Better looking tower than the burj khalifa in my opinion. The middle east is in such a rush to build tall, they should tone it down a bit.
