I just lough my A** off every time I hear some comments telling us this project or that is gonna be canceled because the oil prices!!
and by the way the Saudi government is going to invest more than $ 400 billion in the next 5 years,,and you know what???it's all already PAID


i agree i hate how some people are so uneducated and still talk about shit they dont know anything about low oil prices are not a problem to the Saudi economy any more their had been a trillion dollars already invested in the Saudi economy by the government for the next decade

from Arabian business:

A company owned by billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said on Sunday it has launched plans to build in Saudi Arabia the world's tallest tower which will be at least 1,000 metres high as part of a $26.7 billion project.

The news comes just days after Dubai developer Nakheel said it was going ahead with a $38 billion development including a "more than one kilometre high" tower in Dubai's Arabian Canal area. Architects privately told Arabian Business that the building would be 1,200 metres tall.

Kingdom Holding Co. said the Kingdom City and Kingdom Tower projects are worth total investments of more than 100 billion riyals.

The statement did not say what has become of Kingdom Holding's initial plans to have a mile-long tower.

The projects were unveiled and inaugurated in Jeddah in the presence of King Abdullah and Prince Alwaleed, the company said in a statement.

The two projects will "signify Kingdom Holding's contribution in placing Saudi Arabia at the forefront of the first world and reaffirming Kingdom Holding as one of the world leading real estate developers," the statement quoted Prince Alwaleed as saying.

The two projects' masterplans cover 7.1 square kilometres in the Red Sea city of Jeddah.

The built-up area covers 23 million square meters and includes multi-purpose facilities including residential, entertainment, retail and hotels.

Kingdom City is expected to house 80,000 residents and accommodate 250,000 visitors.

1,200m isn't bad, but I'll stick with 1000m+ until the official announcement.

actually I was focusing on this part:

The two projects' masterplans cover 7.1 square kilometres in the Red Sea city of Jeddah.

The built-up area covers 23 million square meters and includes multi-purpose facilities including residential, entertainment, retail and hotels.

Kingdom City is expected to house 80,000 residents and accommodate 250,000 visitors.

yes, yes, I'm fully aware of your point and it sounds just amazing. This could be an introduction to the future of Saudi Arabia and at some point in the future, who knows, it might out smart Dubai and attract more people.

People in England are already getting taste of how rich Saudis are, with the club chairman of Manchester City arriving and paid all the untouchable debt to start with.

no physical work happened on this project, we're not even 100% if this will certainly happen or not.

There is a gigantic difference between Dubai and Saudi Arabia: the legal system. It would never be still going to live at a place where if it adopts the whip.

ummmm,the first thing the whipping takes a place with a thin and short tree branch,and the "whipper" MUST do it with a rest motion.JUST with his rest.
about the whipping happens in rare cases in Saudi.specially in the cases of selling drugs or if a group fighting (more than one person) hit 1 person,cause the system there is on the base of (eye for an eye).and it goes on everyone.
and the last thing,in the Saudi law there is personal right,and the society right.
with your personal right you can:
-let the court to order whipping him/them for you (if they hit you physically,and it got proved from a hospital or police)
-if he/they broke someones tooth or nose,or damaged someone's eye..etc, he can ask the court to order doing the same (in a hospital) or he can for money "as a compensation".
About the society right is between social works-as minimum- or present -maximum.
what I want to say is "and from my point of view" this is a really good system (even though it needs to got improved in some aspects) and the prove is just a small search being done about the crime rate in Saudi.

Oh God...

my favorite parts are the ones where we find out how it's done with a gentle whip and how eye for an eye nowadays takes place in a hospital...

I am pretty certain I will never see this place with my own eyes.

but most of the people (look I'm saying most not all" ask for a money compensation,instead of taking his eye or tooth.
but still you have the right to ask for his eye or tooth but it's rare.
