It is tallest in the world skyscraper under construction.
Is there some webcam at construction site? Or, maybe, it is planned?

I don't think so. We would have to rely on other people taking pictures there

There is simply no tall building nearby, and webcams probably aren't very popular/common in Saudi Arabia.

The country which is building the tallest structure in the world webcams probably aren't very popular/common in it ??



No dear, webcams are very popular/common in Saudi Arabia

but, probably the developer is planning on it in the future construction stages ..

Now if we had someone to do a drone-flyby we could take some nice images.

That was just a theory - thus I wrote probably. If you are right there should be a number of residents who will capture the construction once it becomes significant in the skyline.

Don't bother yourself and explain Dubai Skyscraper ... He wishes they only lack on webcams lol to be honest this tower is not a big deal since Dubai will most probably have the tallest one by 2020 which I'm pretty sure will have enough coverage to keep us entertained!

Oh and this tower will be lucky to finish on 2020 ... I'm not a hater but more of a knowledgeable person on the matter just wait and see ... you will remember me after 5 years no doubt when this is still buzzing with heavy construction.

Actually webcams available only in makkah and madina to show grand mosques.
while in other cities does not exist even in the capital Riyadh.

We all know this project is likely to finish in 2019 or 2020, so nothing new here. Dubai will not have a taller building than Kingdom Tower finished by 2020, there is no way for it, even if Burj 2020 gets height increased to be the tallest in the world, which is unlikely and it starts next year, which we all hope, but is also not that likely, it would still be not finished by 2020, there is just no way. I doubt any of the currently proposed buildings will be the next tallest after Kingdom Tower, i think in a few years we see a new either middle eastern or chinese proposal that will eventually get built as the new tallest after Kingdom Tower, but even then Kingdom Tower will most likely not lose the title until 2025 earliest.

Actually the people of jeddah don't take care of this tower since they can't see it clearly (Not very tall yet)

additionally it is quite outside of the city. you wouldn't stumble across it, but rather have to look for the site.

I have heard from a person that it will be 1200 meters. Not confirm about that but i am extremely worried how they will reach the tower cranes and materials on +1000 meters. Are we really that advance?

Personally I think, just a few will know the final height until it will be built, same as burn. Btw. What is the reason it won't be original 1600m?

1600 meters, or one mile, is about twice the height of Burj Dubai, known to be an engineering milestone. The costs to bulid taller than a kilometre must grow exponentially with every other meter added.

Everyone knows the cost goes up along with the height, but I don't think developer of this building has financial problems, so I don't think this was a true reason.. Or was it?

Initially, the tower would be 1,600 meters tall, but they had to cut it back to 1000 meters because they were not sure whether the soil could carry such a tall building

Do you know what exponentially means? I can imagine the costs for a mile high tower to be easily 10 times higher than what they are spending on Kingdom Tower (at the current state of engineering).

Oh and soil conditions were surely one of their least concerns.
