Dear Patrykus, sounds really good, maybe someone here who really knows Arabic and English (maybe you Fayzoom?) could check the Arabic text.

For the Tower to be realized the Middle-East needs peace and stability, the situation in Syria is causing a lot of instability, added the looming crisis Iran/Isreal These issues needs to be solved, PEACEFULLY to bring calmness back in this beautiful part of the world. Peace will bring succes to all Arabic nations, and not only spur the start of Jeddah Kingdom Tower, but the Silk Towers in Kuwait, and maybe the Baku Towers. And not to be forgotten the place I have visited: Dubai! As the political situation in the region and the world improves, the economics will follow, and the man-made dreams will be build. Hopefully politicians will finally become wise, to the benefit of us all...

yeah it says that they will begin in the next month which is October ( but it didn't say at the beginning of October ) then the text talks about the expected increases of forecast and it says that the tower builder Binladin Group getting ready to start working at the next month >> Lastly, it says that the lands prices around the project are expected to increase 35% at the beginning and to reach 70% when it's finished

that's all what's important there

and am so happy for hearing this ( but I can't be sure because it's written by someone and might be FAKE !! )

An important step taken into launching Kingdom Tower: its financing is complete. (Ok, not something spectacular, but gives me more confidence towards the tower's future):

i am pretty confident this tower will rise, the only question is when. i am afraid next month will be like january, we wait and wait and nothing happens. if we at least had photos to judge how far preparations are going for this tower.

I tried putting my hands on some photos but to no avail.
But I really think now that next month is indeed next month as financing is secured. But will wait and see.

After 20 months of convincing investors, financing is finally ready for the Kingdom Tower project. Talal Al Maiman, CEO of Kingdom Real Estate Development Co. said in an interview in Shanghai that every detail about financing was discussed with investors and currently the project can move forward as there are no financial obstacles to it.

“We have all the investors, all the finance, all the money we need.” Talal Al Maiman said. This can be only good news for the project.

From other independent sources we confirmed that effective work will begin this year.

i hope all these months preparations were on going and the foundation is already in a good stage so that the tower can begin to grow mid next year, but i am doubtful.

I have a good feeling it will actually start this time. When the money comes in buildings get built.

Yeah but if we were to believe what the Chinese are saying, i.e fast construction of the tower in a couple of months, that tower will stay the tallest until Kingdom Tower tops out. That's 4 years at the least.

But I think its unrealistic to expect them to complete in such ridiculously short period of time.
