i wish this digging machine to coming in jeddah for the kingdom tower.

The photo[the largest digging machine in the world] was taken from germany when it was moving to some other place

its features :

* The machine is 95 meters high and 215 meters long (almost 2.5 football
fields in length)

* Weight is 45,500 tons (that's equivalent to a bumper to bumper line of
jeeps 80 miles long)

* It took 5 years to design and manufacture at a cost of $100 million

* Maximum digging speed is 10 metres per minute

* Can move more than 76,000 cubic meters of coal, rock, and earth per
day.

most people forget that theese BIG babies are currently nothing more than PROPOSALS! The only one shown in the above diagram which is reality as we knolw is the Burj Dubai. All the others have to start real construction etc.. I will be first impressed when i see real construction photos of this an other big towers, till then everything is just on papers.

I made this based on the advertisement of the company (by comparing Kingdom Tower to Burj Dubai ) :

you do wonder why? why such a big tower?. Its more a case of envy and trying to keep up with the ' jones' than any real legitimate reason for need of office space.

Well it's strange, the Freedom Tower was supposed to be the world's tallest building at one time.

The Kingdom Tower is definitely tall, that's for sure. I'll be interested to see what comes of it. It's definitely a "Star Wars" era building. In fact, most of the world is turning into Star Wars in a matter of a couple decades. It's really quite remarkable how much design has changed, and building tall is in.

Will this tower go ahead during the economic crisis or will it be postponed? The reason I am asking is because theres not a lot of investors now.
