boy you are persistent

Ok I will try for the last time make this post as informative and simple as I can to you. It's pretty clear you know very little how professional renderings are being made. None of the images you saw was a tower photoshoped into the skyline by 15yo like broad did for their's first prototypes of the design. It's not freaking hand painting that you can have "wrong perspective" on one render and good on the other. If you have complete 3d model of the city with the main tower all "the artist" have to do is place the virtual camera on one spot, point it to desired direction and hit "render". That's it. There can't be wrong perspective. Ask anyone who actually works with 3d graphics. The only way the tower may be lower on one render is if they would actually use a lower model of it and Rody already told you the model used in that set is 1km tall.

If you still insist the tower on that single render is lower you basically suggesting they used 1km model of the tower in most of the pictures of a continuous series made by a single studio and then switched it with lower model just for that single render. If that makes sense to you I give up

Well, the perspective does look wrong on that image, no matter what you say. Maybe one day, when you'll have the chance to witness in real life a tower taller then 250 meters, you'll understand

The furthest distance from the tower to thee edge of the city, seams to be 3 km. Now compare it with the perspective of the Burj Khalifa render that you posted earlier, that is rendered as from a similar distance, and has the same proportions as it has in real life as well.

It was posted as part of the set of renderings here:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...postcount=5700

All of them are 3d if you doubt it ask the guy who posted them. Although I think it's pretty obvious.

So you chose to be ignorant. No arguments will convince you? Fine, I just wish I wouldn't waste my time explaining it to you. I'll try to don't make that mistake again.

Once again, I DO know how a real-life tower of a similar height looks from the distance that render is supposed to show, and it doesn't look that short, you have never got the chance, so you are not in the position to tell me otherwise.

Wow, the discussion about the alleged height of the tower in the last drawing with the cracked asphalt has lasted for a whole page?

Anyways, at least none of us can say they ever saw what a 1000+ tower looks like in real life. That's for sure

i think you both made your initial statements already clear 25 posts ago and the discussion got from related to just for the sake of proving the other person wrong. can we now continue to enjoy the beauty of witnessing the beginning of the construction of the next (or maybe even second next) tallest building in the world peacefully together

I am not trying to start something else here, but you are being a bit ignorant to him.

Forget it I know him long enough. Killer is right everyone with at least a little common sense would understand till now so I won't continue with this. I will just end with those two pics.

Burj Khalifa seen not from three but two kilometers.



KT seen from at least two kms and still much taller.




Doesn't require much comment. If someone still can't see it I'd suggest visit the oculist or other doctor

I am a bit curious to know why there hasn't been any official website created for it yet. Indeed, I would be much interested to receive updates from there, if there is any at all as we see the project progresses.

We heard some time ago they apparently planned to make one where official updates would be posted but so far nothing happened in that matter I'm afraid.

We might see a few J330s within the next five years .

Works on Kingdom Tower going as planned

The Jeddah Economic Company that was founded for the purpose of building the tower held its fourth board meeting. In it, plans related to the Kingdom City, the city that will be built around the tower, were discussed as well.

After visiting that link it is good news to know that things are going according to plans.

Now, the price-tag for the construction of that building is something I am a bit sceptical of. Will $1.200.000.000 (1.2 billion dollars) be enough to construct such a massive building as KTJ? I will be waiting for an answer with all enthusiasm.
