yes, they are my friend...

I saw them pouring concrete in one of the foundations they are making, plus you can notice that they have put a fence around the tower's plot within the big site (it became more like a project within a project), concrete mixing towers were placed on the site, and surveyors were marking points at the "Lagoon" and the canals area.

In Saudi Arabia those rigs look like the common water well drilling rigs, they are even used to extract ground water for family recreation houses outside of the city. I honestly fail to see how this is enough evidence to label this tower as U/C.

after all the first proposal for the, back then called "mile-height tower", came up over 5 years ago, so the thread is quite old afterall

Hopefully this tower won't die like the rest of many very tall projects or won't shorten or shrink in size ... So weird I thought by now they would've started working seriously and heavily on its foundation.

I think its important to note that SBG will only seriously begin this project when some of its other projects are practically done (many of them in 2014), I expect marginal progress until then and a sudden ramp up afterwards.

Regarding how fast they will execute this, I think it might be faster than most expect simply because its SBG's own projects and that they have gotten much better at rush projects in the past two years.

I don't really see the skepticism in this being built. It really isn't exceptionally tall. 600-700m to roof, really, with a huge spire on top. Tall, sure, but no more difficult to build than structures like Pingan, ST, or the Burj. It fits in with the former buildings mentioned,imo, rather than giant cancelled buildings like Burj Mubarak Al Kabir, or Nakeel Tower that don't taper much towards the top.
Nothing really groundbreaking in this design, just a very tall, very nice design. And because of that, I think it has very good chances of being built.
