Hello it’s Abid.

Here are my thoughts and opinions regarding the Kingdom Tower by Adrian D. Smith.

The Kingdom Tower of grandeur and greatness, a sign of wealth and opulence. The tower is magnificent, absolutely magnificent.

Thank you.

Don't post such videos here, this has absolutely nothing to do with Kingdom Tower. It just starts big senseless off-topic discussions.

but other than buildings being featured that have been cancelled, there are also buildings missing that have been started after these pictures were release. Most obvious is Zhongnan Center.

Is the Kingdom tower an earthquake-proof skyscraper? like Taipei 101

As we started the 21st century, just 11 short years ago, the Petronas Towers held the title of “The World’s Tallest” at 452 meters (1,483 feet) in height. Taipei 101 took the title in 2004, at 508 meters (1,667 feet).Then, at the end of the decade, the Burj Khalifa set new standards at 828 meters (2,717 feet) – over half a mile high. Now, with work set to start on-site in January 2012 for Jeddah’s 1,000+ meter Kingdom Tower (see Figure 2), we can expect that in a mere two decades (2000–2020) the height of the “World’s Tallest Building” will have more than doubled.

In 2009 there was an earthquake in saudi arabias province Al-Madinah with 5,6 on the richter scale.
The article (found it in german but for sure there are sources in english too) said that earthquakes are always possible in the whole area...
So they will build kingdom tower as safe as possible which meens earthquake proof too!

Wow so Dubai is in an earthquake area I hope Burj Khalifa is strong enough


I think the next standard will be a one mile high tower, so 1600m
