Well, this is exciting. I wasn't here to watch the Burj Dubai rise, so it'll be nice to participate this time around.

It's rising!
Yup, pictures are pretty self explanatory. Big thanks to alsaif for taking them.

That proves even pictures from that far are truly valuable here

Why is this project so secretive? Culture or just trade secret?

If you'd be right then it'd mean either:

a) City of jeddah is short of true skyscraper fans who would go for a huge trouble of bringing digital camera with them on the way to work to photograph worlds tallest tower rising in their neighborhood.

..or

b) City of jeddah is short of digital cameras

btw photographic drones are getting cheaper every day. This thing below is just around 1000$.

This is just for you... Unfortunately, the maker of the video did not fly his drone anywhere near the KT this time.

It is because this side of the city is a little remote from the main city. If you check on Google maps, you will find that the huge land area of the project is surrounded to the west and south by seaside resorts. To the north and east, there are many empty land plots and new residential neighborhoods.
North of Jeddah is where the main expansion of the city is taking place.

In addition, there are many people in the society, unaware of the progress being made, still suspicious of the whole project. They think it is some kind of fraud to raise the price of the surrounding land.

I can't believe this is actually happening. I'm going to witness the rising of the tallest building in the world!

Damac is a Dubai based developer so what does that means? Or is also the nickname of some user who made that ilustration?

Regardless, what's the thing on the right?

nope it's the famous worlds tallest, 312m tall, King Fahd's fountain located in Jeddah City. It is currently the tallest "object" in the city so no wonder it's paired with future record breaker in that picture
