To get a perspective of this building if made will be so huge, that you could put willis/sears roof height,a top of 1 wtc pinnacle height, and this building still will be slightly bigger !

Considering a large cement truck only carries about 10m^3 of concrete, those 4 trucks are going to be awfully busy!

they have this on the same site,just few hundreds meter away:



the trucks they are using are with the capacity of 6 m^3.

On the other hand, I was told that this tower is going to have a huge "Slab on grade", and according to the "gantt-chart" I saw this after-noon, the works on this slab on grade will start by mid October, when deep piling and foundation works finish.

Yes slab on the grade agrees with the information we could read in some articles around 6 months ago. According to those articles there won't be any (or much) digging on site but they will simply put a concrete slab on top of the piles above the ground level.

from Financial Times




The prince also revealed plans to build a “mile-high” skyscraper, topping a project he himself is backing to build a 1km-high tower in the Saudi port city of Jeddah.

I was surprised too that they will finish so soon, but lets be honest, bottom slab itself will take some months to construct, pour and cure. So it may eventually start rising by the end of this year but it doesn't have to.

when they finish pilling in october they could pour the slab until the end of the year indeed. but i think it will start to rise early next year, sounds realistic to me.

Let them finish this tower first then we can start hoping and discussing a 1 mile tower ... One question does Saudi Arabia allow non Islams to visit the country for tourism?
thank you

nope, unless you can find a tourist agency which offers planned group trips to saudi. There apparently was one in poland few years ago. Now I can't find any.

For such massive projects, a Concrete Plant is usually built on-site or as close a possible.
