You have to realize that where this is being constructed is basically in the middle of nowhere! It will become the center of a new city but at the present time there is not much around it so very few people are in a position to view the construction. The lack of comments and pictures have nothing to do with interest in the project.

The Kingdom Tower has a ~300 meter spire. leaving about 700 meters to accommodate the 167 floors. The floors do not reach the full height of the building.

Enormous Pictures

View of the tower will become more than a stunning 'through the new bridge

I hope detect designs of buildings adjacent to the tower I do not like a are similar
