Not really But I own a land very close to the project (less than 200 meters) and i am waiting for this project to kicks in for quite sometime now so i can sell it.

I am trying to be honest.

But I will do the best I can to keep u posted with pictures.

Even if the tower needs 6 years to be built they would have to start now with the infrastructure for such a huge project. Just look at Burj Dubai and the Downtown Burj Dubai development. Both started simultaneously...

They said more things are coming on Saturday. So I guess now they are preparing the stage.

Not yet they won't. Prep may have started here, but Nakeel Tower started piling and building a foundation ring, and that's dead now. I won't believe this is going to built until it is above ground.
None the less, I think this has more promise than any other 1000+m tower out there.

This tower could of died a quiet death along, long time ago. It has powerful backers behind it and the fact that machinery is on site proves that this is going ahead.

Yeah, it does.

But the design is too good to be canceled. It just has to be built. Build the damn thing already. Can't wait. I remember those times I've been following Burj Khalifa's construction for more than 4 years. Can't wait for BK2 = Kingdom Tower. Will keep me more busy for the next few years.

Sorry Guys

Sorry Guys I do not want to upset any body especially those who still have some doubts about the project.
But I can tell you this that I am from Jeddah, Saudi Arabia and the Project will see the light by the will of God. The Money for the whole project has been already SECURED. In addition, it has been backed up by prince alwaleed and three other business mans.

Prince alwaleed owns his own A 380 airbus , Question : Dose he needs that?

The Project is already on.

Sorry but your doubts , It does not work with Saudi Arabia.

From the moment the construction started chances of this project failing are the same now as they will be when this tower is already halfway up. And yes, construction starts in few weeks as soon as bauer installs all it's equipment because unlike with burj khalifa there won't any huge hole here, they will start drilling foundation piles right aways from the "street" level. And since as we all know money have been secured for the project the only thing that can stop it now is something as dramatic as another world economic crisis (which stopped the nakheel tower). But since we are in the middle of one it can only get better for this project

So yeah, naysayers can stay negative if they feel need to, but that doesn't change the fact that this thing is getting build as we speak, as predicted
