Pretty sure you joined the wrong forum then
Most of us have waited our whole lives for this race to start again since the early 1900's of NYC

You are probably most loving the architectural style of a skyscraper but for myself I want to know too why a skyscraper is build and if he will offer something to people living around
Please understand my position

Are we using our daddy's computer again? Property values will most definitely increase around the project. Hence why they are building a city around it

This tower looks like the citadel tower from Half life, not a bad thing though.

That's what I thought too It would be awesome if the Saudi king lived at the top of the tower. It would be the Kingdom Tower... absolute monarchy... king living at the top... think about it, it would be like a villain's lair from a movie

The first thing I thought when I saw this design, but I love the Citadel's look

Haven't been on this forum for ages; pleased to finally see something above ground for this project... Was there a lot of coverage - info, pics etc - on the design and construction of the foundations?? Would be really interesting to see. Last time I was here, they were still doing ground surveys I think!

oil?

he is a business man, he is not spending the government's money, the oil business is government owned, and the government is not apart of this project.

5280 feet = 1 609.344 meters, Google says. that means if this is the true definitive height, the title needs to be adjusted. This tower is literally going of the charts!

I do believe that is the old figure. I hope not but I'm guessing it is.

In the photos of the yellow boxed sections in the updates

Are they the lift wells ?

Or are they the floor plans ?

If they are the lift wells this is massive !!!!

But if they are the floor plans,

the footprint seems smallish
