That's because Jeddah has a pathetic density with only 3 significantly tall structures. Talk about trophy towers. The views won't be great either. Just sand and water.

However, on an engineering scale, I think the accomplishment is an engineering feat. I can't wait to see it completed.

It's so long to see this thread but I don't know any height of this building. The thread was posted in 9/19/2007, it lost about 8 years.

Everybody does... but most of us hope that all space in the tower gets sold or rented by 2030. If not, then this tower will be a waste of money. But who am i? It's not my money anyway...

This is terrible!
I'm not talking about the design or anything,
I'm talking about the money.
This tower isn't even needed.
The money used in this project should be used to support people in need.
Or maybe even more important: The Climate
The Climate is a topic that is underrated as F*CK.
People have to wake up and start to realise whats going on.

I get this kind of a reaction everytime, its sad because it means people don't care.

The answer to your question is simple: I come here because I like skycrappers.
But this one is useless.
Some skycrappers are needed, because there is not enough space to built.
Against this skycrapper, as their is no need for it. (there is enough place anyways)
