In September, Kingdom Holding had shortlisted three contracting groups for the deal. They were South Korea’s Samsung Corporation with Dubai-based Arabtec Construction, Australia’s Multiplex, and the Saudi Binladin Group.

Contractors had expected the contract to be awarded within weeks, but according to sources close to the project the developer now wants to consider additional proposals from other contracting groups that may offer a lower price.

Kingdom had also shortlisted various consultancy groups in September. They were the US’ Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Adrian Smith & Gordon Gill Architecture, and US-based Pickard Chilton in partnership with UK-based Hyder Consulting (MEED 11:9:09).

If Kingdom Holding goes ahead with the ambitious project, it will replace the 818-metre Burj Dubai as the world’s tallest building.

The Capital Market Authority is also planning a smaller high-rise project at the King Abdullah Financial District in Riyadh.

It is prequalifying contractors to build a 400-metre-high headquarters building. This structure will be higher than the 309-metre Kingdom Tower, currently the tallest building in Riyadh

what "CrazyAboutCities" has saied is true . they disowned Osama in 1994 .

Quote:
American and European intelligence officials estimate that all the relatives of the family may number as much as 600. In 1994, the bin Laden family disowned Osama and the Saudi government revoked his passport.[6] The Saudi government also stripped Osama bin Laden of his citizenship .....

Because nothing is set in stone yet, almost no information has been released on this tower. It's not even sure if the plans and renders that have been posted recently are actually of this tower.

I'd like to know how Multiplex Australia got even a mention.

That is an immediate flag of incorrect information, as there is an almost 0% chance of multiplex building something like this. Multiplex build low rise office structures and retirement villages in Melbourne (where I am) - can't suddendly see them having the knowledge or the man-power to build something like this.

Casts a lot of doubt over the viability of the information.
