I'm just waiting for that cereal spitting meme to come out after that comment. But yeah, i do agree this is mostly for someone's ego rather than an actual functioning building.

As much as we may think that non-profitability is the case, this is still an AS+GG building. I'd imagine that just like the Burj that while it may take a few years, this building will be profitable for the Kingdom / Jeddah eventually. But yes, vanity first, profit second in this case I'd like to believe.

They will, but not immediately. Over the years it will all pay-off, but for now we can just admire this from our computers all around the world and guess the height of it

In the case of this tower and looking at Chinese activities, i don't think this building will ever be the world's tallest. By the time they finish this one most likely China will already have a taller one. Time will tell.

maybe, but it won't be build before Kingdom tower . So Kingdom Tower will hold the title as Worlds Talles Building...the only question is how long it will hold the title .

How it can be on hold if it still haven't started yet Naif awesome job. What we see on the pictures looks like remains of test barrettes they probably did like a half a year ago. According to the foundation company they will start on december so everything is right. I only expected some ground works for the canals as they supposed to start before the tower but apparently they still haven't started this job.

Btw Naif I'm really curious how you managed get to the center of the site? You were always saying it's fenced and with tight security everywhere.

If they haven't started yet they don't need to keep an eye on this huge site 24/7 now do they? I will be worried if the site will look like that in January 2013.
