Alright, so the new masterplan still don't show much tall towers except the kingdom city. Just by the look of it it seams there will be nothing taller than 200m in the city. Masterplan is nice but it's a little bit shame only midrises will surround The Tallest.

I absolutely love the master plan. The tower is so dominating in it. I hope this will be the final version of the plan

It's just a masterplan, it's not written in stone, all those are just placeholders so it doesn't mean much. The Dubai Marina's masterplam also didn't have any real tall tower on it, but it already has 7 supertalls.

The masterplan purpose is to visualize the distribution of buildings, their approximate heights, location of dominants and such. They can change the masterplan but this one is next in a row showing forest of midrises and no other dominants.

Burj Khalifa downtown renders looked like that in 2006. No big surprises happened after that. It was more or less build to that plan.

Strange to see a tower crane set up at this point in the construction process! I certainly don't see where they have a need for one until after they get the foundations and main slab completed.

$587 million water contract signed for the Kingdom Tower :

The national water company of Saudi Arabia recently signed a contract worth $587 million USD (2.2 billion rials) to supply water for the Jeddah Economic Company.

Details of the deal were made public by the Saudi Press Agency. According to the contract signed, the National Water Company will supply 156,000 cubic meters of water daily for 25 years. The amount of water that is equal to over 41 million gallons will be supplied for the whole Kingdom City project.

Yes, the good old times :

We can only hope for the same with this project, but it's not bloody likely !
