Great artical, but the price of concrete is actually not low, but on the high side.

Great to read that it is now under construction.

And very interesting interview with Prince Al-Waleed. He put much own money in this project and want to make sure that the Kingdom Tower will be rise up from the ground. It sounds like the construction of the Kingdom Tower is a matter close to his heart.

I am glad to hear about the claim it is under construction. However, I would be very much interested in detailed information regarding what supposedly to be under construction, despite somebody visit to the site.

Can somebody point me to the Jeddah Kingdom Tower official website,please?

That sounds like a rhetorical question. What is being constructed are foundation piles for the tower, what you can clearly see on the pictures posted by Rody.

Jeddah will be an economical business hub of Saudi Arabia on Red Sea.

North of Jeddah also a new city is built

King Abdullah Economic City ( KAEC )

I wonder how much of a "height fraud" this tower will be. Not fraud as in lying, more as in.. hmm .. Take Khalifa for example. The upper 250 meters is basically nothing, and the tallest occupied floor is below 600m. This tower looks even more top narrow than Khalifa, so im expecting a lot of specs with this building to be somewhat underwhelming in comparison to the total height. So that observatory platform is at below 700m . Im guessing a couple of floors above it and then 200-300 meters of nothing... but hey it will still be the tallest!
