** update**

-Bauer has almost finished all site preparations, and they are waiting for another 8 machines to arrive to the site, the machines list is:
1- 3 X Bauer BG40 Piling machines (with the power of 40nm of torque)
2- 2 X Bauer BG28 Piling machines (with the power of 28nm of torque)
3- 2 X Pumpers
4- 1X crane
PS: in addition to the machines that already on site>

Those machines are going to arrive to the Jeddah sea port on the 2nd of FEB and it's planned to start working on the site before the 9th of FEB 2013..
What we thought was rumors seems to be real schedule then (we heard construction will follow in the middle of Feb).

And of course big thanks for the update. As we don't get these too often for this project I think it's worth to be reposted on this page too.

on the other hand, Bauer has finished their camp on the site.
<<Bauer has around 85 workers and Engineers on the site at the moment>>

havn't seen the video before. looks a bit like ambitious Dubai plans, and i am quite sceptical. but "two iconic towers up to 120 stories high" (minute ~5:40) sounds quite promising

it wasn't rumors at all..on the other hand, may I know from where did you hear about that?


any ways, some surface works are under way at the moment, the deep Piling will start by the 9th of FEB, and the foundation works will finish during the last week of 2013. After that, the site will be handed to SBG "Saudi Bin Laden Group" at no more after the second week of January 2014.

Cue the individuals who will either say...

1. These are old pictures and show nothing new, or
2. This does not mean the building will actually get built, or
3. This does not mean the building will get out of the ground, or
4. It's all for prestige and does not need to get built so will not get built, or
5. It's ugly and shouldn't get built so will not get built, or
6. It's not an appropriate location and shouldn't get built so will not get built, or
7. It looks lame and shouldn't get built so will not get built, or
8. It's a pipe dream and shouldn't get built so will not get built, or
9. It's a waste of money and shouldn't get built so will not get built, or
10. It's getting boring and shouldn't get built so will not get built, or
11. Obvious construction dangers so it shouldn't get built so will not get built, or
12. Blah, blah, blah...

Anyone want to add more...

Personally, I love it and will be checking this forum excitedly every day to catch each and every inch of progress the wonderful photographers like Naif Saudi, Marioma and Rody69 can bring us. Thanks guys.
