You'll visit the construction site? Or just Jeddah in general?

It is literally being built in the middle of nowhere? That seems bizarre to say the least. Isn't it nonsensical to build such a beast in such a desolate area?

The Burj Dubai was pretty much the same in the beginning...

They could finance SSC if every one of those comments brought a dollar.

It's like 1 mi. from the international airport, and maybe 2 or so from downtown Jeddah.

Empty land isn't the same thing as the "middle of nowhere."

Google Earth is never "up to date" and we are lucky to got such a "recent" shot. Next update of Kingdom tower could be in a year's time or more, so be happy for what we got

Also this update shows that none of the other buildings in Kingdom City has started yet.
Anyone knows when they were supposed to start construction?

Have we even seen any official designs of them? Or any announcements whatsover about them?
I assume they'd want other buildings/towers to be built along with this ready for when Kingdom Tower is completed, otherwise there'd be no other reason to come here...

Also does anyone know when they're going to start on the canal/lake(s)?

No idea, but for Burj Khalifa they didn't start the lake and landscaping before very late into the construction of the tower.

I remember vaguely that Rody69 mentioned a while ago that some of the skyscrapers next to KT were about to start in the next months, but don't quote me on that, it's just a vague memory.

About the landscaping and canals, that will surely take some more year until they even start, as it's something that can be build within a few months.

I assume they want to finish the tower before even thinking of starting the rest, so that publicity is built and land value rises.

maybe not finish but it'll be probably be far in construction already until they start with other things.
