I figure the reasons for the hold are more demand wise rather than financial. Uncertainty is starting to fuel the "economic crisis", when people get into a specific mind set its hard getting them out of it...

نفت شركة المملكة القابضة الأنباء التي نشرتها مجلة "ميد" (MEED Magazine) عن تأجيل الشركة لبناء مشروع برج المملكة في جدة والذي من المفترض أن يكون أعلى برج في العالم بعد الخسارة التي منيت بها الشركة العام الماضي بسبب الأزمة المالية العالمية.
وردا على سؤال لـ"الوطن" قالت المملكة القابضة في بيان رسمي أمس إن مجلة "ميد" قامت بنشر معلومات خاطئة حول مشروع جدة في عددها الثاني لشهر فبراير 2009 والذي تحدثت فيه عن تأجيل البرج نقلاً عن مصدر مجهول قريب من المشروع الذي يشرف على بنائه وتطويره شركة بيكتل (Bechtel) الأمريكية.
وكانت مجلة "ميد" نقلت عن المصدر ذاته أن شركة بيكتل أقفلت حسابها مع شركة المملكة القابضة بعد أن تم تأجيل مشروع البرج الذي صمم ليكون ارتفاعه 1000 متر، إلى أجل غير مسمى.
وفي يناير المنصرم شدد رئيس مجلس إدارة شركة المملكة القابضة الأمير الوليد بن طلال على سلامة ومتانة استثمارات المملكة القابضة، مشيراً إلى أن ذلك الصمود يأتي بالرغم من الخسائر التشغيلية التي بلغت 14.7 مليار ريال والتي لا تشكل سوى 22% من رأسمالها البالغ 63 مليار ريال.
وأكد الأمير الوليد بن طلال خلال مؤتمر صحفي عقده في الرياض بمناسبة إعلان النتائج المالية الموحدة للسنة المنتهية في 31 ديسمبر 2008 إنه تأكيداً لموقف شركته القوي فإنها سوف تعلن عن مشروعين عملاقين في جدة والرياض.
وفي أكتوبر من العام الماضي تم تدشين أعمال البناء لمشروعي مدينة المملكة/جدة ومشروع برج المملكة/جدة، ويبلغ إجمالي الاستثمار في المشروعين أكثر من 100 مليار ريال. ومشروع مدينة المملكة/جدة، يقع في منطقه خليج ( أبحر) شمال جدة، على مساحة مقدارها 7.1 ملايين متر مربع تقريبًا. وستبلغ مساحة البناء 23 مليون متر مربع موزعة على برج المملكة، والفلل والشقق السكنية، والمساكن المتنوعة، والفنادق والمكاتب، والمجمعات التعليمية والتجارية، والإنشاءات الشاطئية، وما يلزم من البنى التحتية المتكاملة.
وعينت شركة المملكة القابضة في سبتمبر من عام 2007 شركة بيكتل للإشراف على بناء وتطوير مشروع جدة العقاري العملاق. وقد وقع الاختيار على شركة بيكتيل (Bechtel) بعد دراسة العروض المقدمة من سبع شركات تنافست للحصول على هذه الصفقة.

you talking to me or the project?

this project is no longer a Mile High Tower, its Kingdom Tower. Its like saying we humans are monkeys now. And this tower will not be 1608m anymore but more like between 1000-1200m, and according to the company, it will be the tallest in the world. Considering that Nakheel says the same for NHT.

I said 'more LIKE' which means it can be 1200m, but probably not anything higher than that. But definately at least 1000m.
