Please do not Quote me on this

Please do not Quote me on this.

Since you Guys eager for news I got this news from somebody that has talked to a Jordanian engineer responsible for making sure that all the equipment is ready on site. This engineer said that " All the equipment including the heavy one should completely on site by mid of January 2013 and work will start by the beginning of February 2013 "

Please do not Quote me on this and I am not sure about its credibility but there is one thing that I am sure of that Finally the Site is rock 'n' roll.

No more Doubts Please.

Well it looks like a rather peaceful neighbourhood
I don't want to be overly pessimistic, but it doesn't seem that in the next 10 years it will be a place worth moving to (the KT building, not the Jeddah overall).

well a whole district is planned with this project called Kingdom City, but i think the whole development will take extremely long, however i am sure eventually more development outside kingdom city will move there because of all the new homes and work places that will come with Kingdom City. and once the main infrastructure is settled it will be easier for new things to move to this part of the city, although it is quite outside of Jeddah

Well guys ......... looks like the so much awaited moment finally came ...... World of Architecture states as official that piling works is set to start this month (the article is from Dec. 18th), it will take 10 months and the project is fully financed and won't suffer 'on hold' pauses due to lack of funds. Also, they've begun to leak first 3D structural models, plans and pile blueprints.
Have a look here and to the related articles:
http://www.worldofarchi.com/2012/07/...rints-and.html

Guess now the topic can be finally moved?

HUH??? Call me a skeptic but where did they get the money required to built this tower?

Well in any case, if it does get built, hopefully it won't have a fire that will make it crash like the Thompson Tower in the Thunderbirds episode "City of Fire" ;o

Piling work is announced to start this month by Bauer, but according to some insights from the site, they will keep delivering machinery and start in January. That's the latest info. Also, it won't take 10 months to fully finance the tower, tower is financed already, it will take 10 months to build foundations.

You should re-read that post. You just repeated everything he said

Oh boy. I was reading fast, and thought he said financing will be done in 10 months. My bad. Sorry.

Yep, when speaking about financing, I was meaning the entire project and not the piling works only. My English phrasing is sometimes faulty, sorry

I'm not 100% sure on this since I'm fairly new to this site, but I'm assuming this thread will get moved into the U/C section once this project is actually, you know... UNDER CONSTRUCTION. If there was a Set to start this month forum, I'm sure the mods would happily move it there post-haste, but it probably would have been placed there about two years ago when construction was originally "just about to start." Apparently the mods need more than pics of a couple trucks and storage containers in a vague desert-like area to verify that construction of a kilometer-high tower is under way at a specific location in Jeddah. Crazy, I know.
