You're right. I actually want to go back reading, but I'm too lazy to do it now. I just wait others to post updated pics. Lol

April 1st?

i hope it's just a small information and not a delay...though it would be just a small one.
We saw pics with Bauer Drilling Machines on site last month, with the information that foundation work will start early February...which is over already.

On Thursday, February 21st, the Jeddah Economic Company (JEC) announced that the joint venture between EC Harris and Mace won the project management contract for the Kingdom Tower.

CEO of JEC, Waleed Abduljaleel Batterjee said that the reason Mace was hired is to use the same team that worked for The Shard in London. On the other hand, EC Harris has a long list of projects in the region including the Grand Millenium Al-Wahda Hotel, Abu Dhabi’s largest hotel complex.

In the coming weeks the Jeddah Economic Company will also appoint a quantity surveyor for the project.

Work by the two firms is expected to start in the middle of the year. Currently, German firm Bauer is executing foundation work on the construction site.

So construction apparently started, it's just that JEC (Jeddah Economic Company) doesn't call it this way. It's a bit strange though because I'm not sure what work shall start in the middle of the year. There is no way they can be done with the foundation till then. Maybe middle of the year is the time when foundation piles will be ready and works on foundation concrete slab will begin (which is probably also included in bauer contract) but I suspect it will be too soon for that too.

So when will this building start to rise?

I don't think we will see it start rising for another year at least. Am I wrong?

It's certain it won't rise this year. But it almost certainly will in the next.

Maybe, the start of the foundation work is not even reached. I think all what they're doing right now is preparation !! . The start of the foundation work is on april 1st I guess. if they are doing the the foundation work why don't they announce it ?

This will be amazing, welcome to the world of Blade Runner...

Keep in mind that this will be more than 1007m, it could easily be 1200 or so. Impressive either way.
