Great to finally see progress, but I hope they will start to build other parts of Kingdom City as well, at least the parts next to this one. Otherwise it would stand in the middle of nowhere without any buldings for scale around. But I think they have enough time to do some of the sorroundings because the tower itself is going to take some years.

I hope some of the construction workers on the next faze will be on SSC for pictures/updates on a regular bases.
What would be even more cool is if one of them buys a Drone to take pictures from all sorts of angles.

I only see these kind of towers being built in the middle east, probably China one day too.

I'm sure that China will want to do it, but doubt that they have the technical know-how yet. Of course they can always buy it from outside the country.

buying is the #1 option that keeps this economy going. China will follow, don't worry. Better yet, it will be in the next 10 years. Mark my words.

I'm afraid they will have the worst recession any country has ever seen, seeing their extravagant spending. Hope they take right decisions after doing so many mistakes.

A ghost tower in a country with almost one and a half billion people?

A lot of people means a lot of ghosts.
