Well if you decide to troll Ultros just FYI he's vulnerable to Lightning and Fire attacks.

Looking at those pictures, the base doesn't look as massive as I expected it would be.

The Kingdom Tower in Saudi Arabia, which will be the world's tallest tower at 1,008 metres, will be completed in December 2018, said Mounib Hammoud, CEO of Jeddah Economic Company.

Contractors working on the SR6bn ($1.6bn) project expect to complete the raft foundation of the tower, which is the largest of its kind in the world, in August this year.

Full article http://www.constructionweekonline.co.../#.U8gbH9NuvFo

I read somewhere in the news that the first floor is slated to completed in late August. And the above artical justifies this as the raft is expected to complete in Augest.

Lol kanto. You had asked me to tell you when it came above ground, well... it is. You should've asked me for a certain length to inform you.

^ If you fell from 1m you could still hurt yourself. It's respectable height.

Hi all.

The (most likely) finished floor of level B2 looks to be the top of the raft at minus 7.575 meters. This normally is in reference to a datum - not sure here.

0.00 is normally the F/F elevation of the ground level and may be the case here, since level 1 is at 5.900.


Ray.

At least from the latest pics it looks the raft is just a little higher than the ground level.
