5 years ago I heard the same. Tell us when they'll actually do something in that direction.

btw can't believe some Saudis still repeats the same mantra that tourism in saudi is fully allowed while we had that discussion so many times already

So is there any proof this building is under construction? Or is it still in the stage of preparation?

Can't a wealthy person spend money on something without being accused having a small *****? I guess all the poor people around the world must have the really large *****'s right

I bet this one will be put on hold. Hopefully construction will start. If it does I doubt it will finish by 2020.

Everybody lies, and everybody's stealing something. You r stealing time from those that came here to read about the skyscraper. All your friends and colleagues r stealing from your expectations picture.
And if somebody tells "I'm sure ...blah-blah-blah" - he's exactly stealing reputation (even from yourself, with such allegations), wasting time of others etc. Where's your solution of the problem? You're not stealing time if: a)you provide a solution to the problem; b)you provide valuable information, worth the time spent
