Good sir you are right. It's a plausible retort to any opinion on the Internet.

Why this thread has this serious lack of pics of Kingdom tower progress? is it maybe the tower location which might be very far from city? or maybe cz no one who's a member is in Jeddah these days?

It is just very weird seeing midget towers getting more attention and updates than the future tallest tower on earth?

One would have to be in Jeddah working on this or other business, and getting photos not the easiest of tasks.

Kindergarten = playschool/pre-school. It is a place where small children go while their parents are at work.

The world is lacking sand? Last time I checked, there is a whole desert of sand next to this tower!


As for no pictures, my guess is that there is bugger all to actually see at the moment.

This reminds me of CMA building in Riyadh. Because the building was within King Abdullah Financial District mega project and no one was allowed to enter the whole project area, no news or updates about the tower were available. The construction of CMA tower started about June 2010; however, we in SSC knew about it in Nov 2010 (Six months later). It was only when the tower started to raise that pictures were available (more than three pics updates every week now).

As for Kingdom City and Tower, the problem is far worse. Kingdom City in Jeddah is way bigger than KAFD in Riyadh. Of course, no one is allowed there and the closest road is about 750 meters away from the location of the tower (the others are about 1.8 and 2.5 kilometers away!!!) . The only way to get update pictures is for someone to have connections with those inside. In other words, (and sorry to say that) but don't expect to see regular updates before the tower rises above ground.

Looks like we gonna watch the Kingdom city via satelite images like if it would be Area 51. Seriously, why do they have to lock it down like that, what harm would it bring if we could watch the buildings rise? LOL, are they reverse engineering alien space crafts over there or what?
