No Other Tower as of now , so Far IMO has the funds like The Prince Here His Money and He Owns His Tower !!

Very True Riyadh Crusher , The top 3 Floors are the Prince's Penthouse , 168, 169 , and 170 th Floors are all His connected !!, His own elevator goes all the way up from His Limo Car

Long Live the Kingdom Tower and Long Live The 12th Anniversary of the SkyscraperCity.com Wide World Website !!

So, beeing squeezed between piles and building, raft must have suffered tremendous pressure. I was wandering what materiel is raft built off. I guess it's concrete reinforced with lot of steel. How much steel is there in raft? And, btw, does anyone know what are piles made of...?

Everything (pile and raft) are reinforced concrete.

And the raft is not squeezed between them, the raft transfer the load of the building to the piles beneath, just like the seating surface of the chair transfer the weight of the fatarse on top of it to the chair legs.

Wrong guess! The raft is made of depleted uranium, and the piles in any KSA building are all made of 24k gold-reinforced diamond! (Cheers with Ice-Oil)

I was thinking the same, it looks solid and goes up pretty far. It makes sense to install the climbing formwork right after the walls of level 1 are poured
