For everybody who's interested, the formwork comes from one market leader, the austrian "Doka" company.
Unfortunately the release is only in german language, but google translator makes a good work

Quote:
...Der Kingdom Tower ist ein weiterer Meilenstein in der Doka-Firmengeschichte. Wir sind stolz, unsere Erfahrungen und Highrise-Kompetenz bei diesem beeindruckenden sowie anspruchsvollen Rekord-Bauwerk zeigen zu können“, sagt Josef Kurzmann, Vorsitzender der Geschäftsführung der Doka Group...

And everybody who wants to know the expected amount of concrete and steel:

Quote:
Advanced Construction Technology Services (ACTS) was appointed to carry out quality control checks on the construction materials to be used on the ambitious 1km high Kingdom Tower in Jeddah. About half a million cubic metres of concrete and around 80,000 tons of steel are set to be used in the tallest building in the world...

They have been posted here: Length of piles, number of them for each length, the diagram showing the distribution etc.

Daily Mail? Really? ..... I didn't know we were looking for what Kardashian wore at the restaurant.

That's a good question, unfortunately i hadn't found detailed information about construction start of Kingdom City.
But what i found is this:
29.12.2014

Quote:
The Kingdom City project was envisaged as a modern landmark sub‐center in Saudi Arabia. Located on a 530 hectare site north of metropolitan Jeddah along the shores of the Red Sea, the project will have the world’s tallest building as its centerpiece, the Kingdom Tower (currently under construction). The Tower will not only attract foreign investment to the city, but will also be a significant icon both for the city of Jeddah, and for Saudi Arabia.

Calthorpe Associates won an international design competition for the Master Plan of this unique community. The design consists of a master-planned community of distinctive neighborhoods with a commercial core featuring international offices, a first-class retail establishment, unique open spaces and diverse residential communities. The Master Plan is the end result of a series of studies, analyses and the application of urban design principles reflecting the vision and objectives of the client. Through the collaborative efforts between Jeddah Economic Company and Calthorpe Associates, the plan will produce a healthy and vibrant community, an integrated urban environment that will fluidly evolve into the primary economic and social heart of the City of Jeddah.

The project will provide a quality living, working and entertainment environment for the residents of Jeddah, visitors from other parts of Saudi Arabia, and for international visitors. The project is expected to accommodate a population of 210,000 residents and host 197,500 non‐residents who will enjoy its world class facilities.
