Very nice to see this project U/C. I didn't like the renders when this was still called the mile high tower, but now the render/design look absolutely gorgeous. I'm looking forward to seeing this building stretching skywards.

Is the contractor the same firm which belongs to Osama Bin Laden family ? If so, this will be on radar of CIA, lolz.

I thought it was well known that he WAS RELATED to the Bin Laden Construction family. Although they pretty much kicked him out of the family when he formed Al-Qaeda back in the 90's, I'm sure there was still some sort of communication.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Osama_bin_Laden

"Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden was born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, a son of Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden, a billionaire construction magnate with close ties to the Saudi royal family, and Mohammed bin Laden's tenth wife, Hamida al-Attas (then called Alia Ghanem).

Bin Ladin is KSA's absolute biggest and most experienced construction company. They even bid for the Burj Dubai job

Actually it is (the same family) .... regardless, just a pointless discussion.

LOL, the bigoted press in the past, even said Osama Bin Laden (himself) is building World's tallest tower, because the company did bid for the Burj Dubai's contract

Seriously though, like Altin said, it is a pointless discussion. They pretty much kicked Obama out of the family way back in the 90's when he created Al-Qaeda. After all, as the largest construction firm in the world, you don't want to be associated with a terrorist.

It is not a matter of being bigoted. But, the fact remains Osama Bin Laden is a wicked and dangerous individual(being the founder of Al-Qaeda) there is always a reason to see anything associated with that name to be questionable or arising curiosity. I almost did the same thing the first time I saw that name among others concerning this particular gigantic building. I still think it comes down to the evils he has committed before he was finally busted and killed.

I wish this building has nothing to do with Osama Bin Laden and his family, although, I am not hating at all.
