Just look through the thread . You'll find enough pics from Rody which are already evidence enough. Also there were enough articles about the start.

I know you are "ex". I just rember good work you did moderating threads here that I'm surprised seeing that, no offense, newbie question of yours.

As for the evidence there can't be possibly more actually.

- There are pictures showing pilling rigs drilling foundation piles
- We've seen concrete tracks pouring piles
- There are google earth pictures showing the activity is indeed on the towers location not anywhere else
- There are statements from guys close to the insiders like Rody about foundation piles being u/c
- There is information published on the official bauer website that they are contracted to work on the foundation from december 2012 for 10 months.
- And finally there is news press release about this project officially starting construction.

Too bad we have to remind this page after page in this thread.

Perhaps I'm getting too unconfident by all those dream castles built in the region over the course of years. Even when something starts getting built, it doesn't mean it's actually happening...

We'll see.

I don't care about originality. I just care if it looks good, which it does.

BTW that Citadel is really oversized in the diagram. There's no way it's that huge in the game.

The remaining lands will be utilized for leisure facilities, tourism and the construction of four star hotels.

If that someone did not know what to do with it (money), why is he actually doing something?

Because the sheikhs from Emirates had built Burj Dubai so the King thought 'You think you're richer than me? My ass!'. Hence the Kingdom Tower.
