you're such a troll.....

When the tower is finished you probably want to try to tell us that the tower is just fake and doesn't exist in reality

If you don't like this project or skyscrapers in general better get ouf of this forum!


@Rody:

you're the best

Awesome update! They're still digging out the piles at one part while they're already installing rebar for the raft foundation. I guess the raft will be poured in the next 2-3 weeks.

you're almost right!!
all of these works are going to be finished including the raft by 24th April 2014, the plan is to start the works above the ground level before the end of april.
the thing I couldn't have an answer for, was the big Pentagon shaped "Five sided shaped" hole they are digging at the center of the tower (I believe that there is a massive core going to rise from there
as you can see here:

Could the pentagon-shaped hole mean that a re-design is coming soon? Or perhaps just a re-design of the base?

Burj Khalifa also hat a pentagon-shaped core, so i don't think there are changes.

I'm guessing it's for the core, and I presume it is a hexagon, here is a crappy diagram I just did of what I mean:

After six and a half years, 362 pages, and very little substance, it's nice to finally see such a definitive and substantial update. Thank you!

The problem in the adoption of the projects fits the population with an annual growth of 3.6% in the country, of whom almost 66% Saudin nearly 33% males and 33% females and 33% of foreign non-Saudis, including approximately 22% males and 11% females
Distribution of projects depends on the population and the city of Jeddah lured to the population so you get the biggest projects need higher and higher population larger
Newborn wants to build the tower, but does not have the authority to build roads or provide services or trains or water or electricity or any services provided by ministries

^So the tower will grow by approximately 3.6% a year?

Yeah, seems to fit the current pace very well


Nah, just kidding. Great to see work being underway on this! Can't wait for the more "established media" to tour the construction site. Rody made a great update, but it's hard to grasp the size of the project from those pictures. I mean, head over to (almost) any thread about supertalls in China. Their foundation pits alone seem titanic; stadium-size holes in the ground with hundreds of people running around on a mesh of rebar so massive it obscures the ground underneath, among columns big enough to count as towers in their own right. They give the impression that heaven and earth is set in motion to get a monster of a building to rise. And those are for buildings half as tall as this one. I have to say, Kingdom Tower seems a little underwhelming so far, but I'm sure that impression will be corrected as progress marches on. Now hoping for somebody to bring a quadcopter or something to the site...

So you do not need to wait long growth of population in the country, Saudis and foreigners 66% Saudis and non-Saudis, 33% and in the city of Jeddah, Saudi 50% and 50% non-Saudis City attractive to residents



In small towns, 66% to 90% Saudis and non-Saudis, 33% to 10% of the population of cities repellent



Newborn obtained a building permit and that means assent to provide services and the rest of the buildings in the project needs for building permits

There are small projects continue building in which more than 15 to 30 years due to lack of hands worker and his employer for projects and available for the transport industry and foreign investment, 33% of the size and cost of the project the percentage of non-binding so it does not need to rush to build fast, but in the case reached the population growth of the urgent need for the construction of the rapid The projects need over the census is very slow because it largely resembles inappropriate to tamper with population growth target
Newborn he wants to build in the land of busy desert-like need for services Ministries and without the presence of a census enough and provide services like expedite the construction of the piles of iron and cement middle of the desert before the provision of services and ministries or employment opportunities or shares of investment in the country in general need population growth either in specific locations You need varying proportions fits projects are appropriate for the population of the largest set + cities have a population smaller + villages of others as possible to provide a very small projects more than just basic services do not require a large number of the workforce and staff
Just to clarify so as not to significantly enthusiasm and work in the last example of the difficulty of achieving Amani on the land like a new building not suitable for the illegal regime
