Here maps of the distribution of land use in Jeddah now and in the future and is suitable for population growth











Population growth is limited by the need to build the city of Jeddah and the second city of Saudi Arabia 's population sense of completion of projects is supposed be faster unlike small towns and villages

Land Project Kingdom City in Jeddah need licenses structures and licenses Towers form to fit services to provide ministries Z Health Services hospitals Khaddam education schools and colleges security services psp sense ministries contribute fits census within the project in addition to providing electricity, water, roads and other services to embrace her ministries projects this needs to guide projects towards census




Kingdom Tower received a building permit




The rest of the buildings within the city of the kingdom need for building permits

There are small projects take a long time in other cities, a population of small


Here is an example of a project in the city of a population equal to 10 % of the population of the city of Jeddah





The project needs to complete 40 years in the sense completeness 2055

So what is the urgency to get Ntaij any project needs to be linked to prudence Just as money is supposed not to ignore projects linking the census projects Just as with the outside of his grandfather rival cities to attract rates of population growth, the rest of the sites in Jeddah attract a number of population growth

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...
Very few of these Chinese supertalls are being built in the middle of nowhere. It's really, really cheap to hold property that is nothing more than a dusty wasteland of nothingness. Whereas the plots where they build skyscrapers in cities are expensive.

In very small towns less than 2,500 people, or large villages allowed Towers cheap and height of 6 to 10 roles with the cost of the land the building 10 floors should not exceed the cost of any event 30 million sr because the prevailing income is equal to 10 years, the cost of land and construction
Every 10 years is equal to the cost of rental property construction of the tower and the ground
Must be available jobs provide salaries for tenants and sales
Because the salary is limited in large villages and small towns
In the big cities of the oscillating costs Towers 10 roles between 30 million to more 60 million sr
Site staff and entered in the revival of the city determines the appropriate costs for rents equivalent to 10 years the total costs for the construction of the tower and the value of the land
Sites in a very expensive college costs depend on the income of the wealthy tenants so that rents are calculated 10 years to determine cost-effective to build a tower
These are familiar figures to calculate the cost of buildings
Reminder should not be in a rush to get quick results of the work on the project because the work associated with projects of ministries and services are available until the job fit the population growth or population target
I remember population so there is not the dreams do not fit reality

While obviously the sheer height of this thing is impressive something like the Shanghai Tower which is occupied to almost the top is just as impressive to me, plus it's in the middle of a megacity and not a desert with little else.

Plus Saudi Arabia isn't exactly tourist friendly so I'm not sure how many people will end up visiting this thing.

Is it me or construction site isn't as huge as we would expect from this building? Maybe that hole is actually not for Kingdom Tower but for some other thing.

Looks right to me. The workers look small compared to the rebar.

Thank you very, very much, Rody. I clicked this thread on a pure hunch, not expecting anything, suddenly I see an update. Great way to start the day.

Regarding updates for this project I had an idea, by the way, I posted it in the updates thread for the staff to read, let me know what you think:

From CTBUH:

Above-Ground Work to Start on Kingdom Tower



Above-ground work on the 1-kilometer-tall Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, will begin next month, according to Building Design. Construction will start on April 27 and will be managed by UK project managers EC Harris and Mace. Construction is set to take 63 months, finishing in 2019. EC Harris and Mace beat out13 rivals for the role and will ensure that the project hits its budget and construction timetable.

In December 2013, contractor Saudi Bauer completed piling work for the tower, including sinking 270 piles up to a depth of 110 meters.

Former JEC chief executive Waleed Batterjee said the UK joint bid of Mace and EC Harris was picked partly for Mace’s experience construction on the UK’s tallest building, the Shard.


Kingdom Tower will be more than three times as tall as the 304-meter Shard designed by Renzo Piano.
