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.

you are welcome guys

I'll try to arrange a regular visit with them, although I'm getting really busy these days as I just started my own company in addition to the job I have at the moment

any way, your sweet words give the motivation to do more..
Best regards

Certainly is an impressive project, beautifull, it challenges our hability to build massive things, but, at the other hand, I can't avoid thinking in all that money involved in a proyect that, lets face it, it is not necesary. Besides the tourism that it could generate by itself, a multi 200-meters proyect could easily work as well. So then we know that the only reason that can get this proyect to the reality, is to satisfy the need to be at the top, to satisfy the human ego. And that is an unconfortable fact that implies all this proyect.

We can say that the arrival of manhood to the moon was made by the same purposes, but to reach the sky and understand the universe looks to me much more significant than "building a tall building" despite the fact that it will be a massive task, and it will break many records.

I like Kingdom Tower and am looking forward to its construction but I do hope they make more buildings that don't rely on the spire for height... Not saying that Kingdom Tower is 'relying' on it.

How much height will be between its highest level and spire anyway?

Other than this, I can't wait to see it get built, Melbourne needs some taller buildings!

Its the case for any supertall that is built these days.....no big surprise there. But i am here for one reason and that is to follow the worlds tallest and most beautiful buildings and to see architecture advances in ways that once were thought impossible. Really, who cares about the politics of why a tower is built. If that is the case then i'm sure there are many political websites out there to voice ones opinion of why a tower should be 1000m or 300m. The name of this site is skyscrapercity.com last time i checked.

How would we able to know that the rigs has started the drilling. It is also possible that they have already started with some drillings.

Nope Rody told us the works are scheduled to start 9th of FEB 2013. Everything before is preparation by the ssc standards. So it's very close, just not yet.
