The truth mus be told, the building is not economically viable at all from many points of view. Looking at what the aims and aspirations of those who are involved with the construction plan is it's clear the building is more or less about pride than economy, most especially, looking at it from the man involved with the financing. Another thing is the location which is right at the middle of the desert, it will likely discourage people from going there en mass during the summer time.

If the project planners expect this to turn out to be another Dubai it might just be a near disappointment - as to proximity and culture of the people of that country. I think the feasibility studies were not properly done from those perspectives.

The project is not targeting foreign but Saudi money, the building itself will not make money as per projections of most involved including the investors. The money will be made in the surrounding development which will have this tower as the center piece.
