Wow. That picture makes Burj Khalifa's footprint look really small. It seems you could barely fit a tennis court at each wing. Compare and contrast to, say, Ping An IFC or Shanghai Tower's foundation holes. They looked as big as stadiums, with the people working in them being almost impossible to spot if not for their brightly coloured helmets. I've seen primary schools with more imposing-looking foundation pits than this, though I know it's probably just a trick of the picture. The fact that this is aboveground makes everything look smaller, even though it really is very big.

Thanks For This Great Find Patrykus, Our SSC Friendly Family Friend Great Planning For The Future Kingdom City By 2050 IMO
But Maybe In The Near Future The Man Made Canals Around The Kingdom Tower And Its City Will Be Connected To The Sea To Accept Larger Yachts And Visitors By Boats From The Red Sea And Surrounding Areas

Long Live The Kingdom Tower !!

By APPublished Sunday, August 07, 2011



The investment company headed by Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal says it plans to complete the world's tallest tower in just over five years time.

The Kingdom Holding Co did not say Sunday when work would begin on the Kingdom Tower.

The $1.2 billion tower will be roughly two-thirds of a mile (1 kilometer) high. It is part of a $20 billion mega project on the outskirts of the Red Sea city of Jiddah.

The tower will be built by the Saudi Binladen Group construction conglomerate. It will cost $400 million and feature a Four Seasons hotel, luxury condominiums and offices that encompass around 5.4 million square feet.

i think you're right. They'll need a few weeks to pour all parts of the raft. Not sure how fast they can start to build the first floor after that, but it won't start to rise this month. Maybe in the mid or end of june.

Is there any bedrock underneath this thing, or is it going to rest on hardpan? (which is what it looks like to me).
