I prefer it to the Burj khalifa even if both are pointless as hell and will never be filled.

How do you want to know that the kingdom tower will never be filled?

You don't know it, you're just guessing...

Maybe 50yrs after completion it will be. Right now its just being built for show and tourism, same as the BK. How do I know? Look how full the burj khalifa is, and it already tells you this will be empty too.

Cities like New york, Moscow and Shanghai also take time to fill up their buildings despite having much higher demand than Jeddah. Its going to cost a ton to rent floor space in this building and why would companies waste their money where there is cheaper space right next door in a 10 story building? Instead of building all the giants, middle eastern cities should work on developing a full city and infrastructure.

50 years from now the climate in arabia will be totally uninhabitable, so it's not going to matter.

So tell me how empty it is, and whhich of the sections: the hotel, residences or offices .... and I am not even going to ask you how much space is occupied by each

w00t, glad this is now under construction! I'll be glad to follow the construction of this from the ground up, as I missed the early stages of construction of the Burj Khalifa.

Very exciting!

Saudi Arabia is a huge country with 22 million citizens,not to compare with other gulf cities or states like Qatar,Bahrain,UAE which have 3-4 million citizens.And it also have the most oil in the region.

There are also projects in Riyadh ( Financial District )
