Perhabs they wanted to start earlier than liebherr was able to make those cranes for them, so they just simply used different ones, which were avaliable. They know what they better than all of us all together. Some insider info would be awesome.


No, it isn't going up fast. The oly country where buildings go up fast is china. This building is probably designed to last more than one generation unlike chinese buildings.

My guess is those are ground works for the kingdom mall, which will be part of the tower. Which may mean the floor plates are coming soon. Well 6-12 months is my guess.

Exactly, we had pictures of these foundations some weeks ago and it was stated that they are for the mall. But hey, better than nothing

@ Aalecki

I agreed you, the progress isn't high at the moment. I think, it is a great competition to get there aims.

That they will reach 100 m in June 2015 and 200 m in November 2015!

This was probably the only comment mentioning the desert that was clever and shows how wrong the people are who believe it is located in the desert. Makes me sad that a good comment like yours gets misinterpreted and totally snapped on. Would have been a great comment to stand alone, because it's short and to be point. Hope the mods remove the insults that resulted from it, they went to far from sure.

And yes, it is enough off topic, so I reply to your comment on topid now. The renders with all the green space around the tower show it quite vividly, the tower is located in a really big plot, which makes it look like it's much outside the city, but all of this sandy area will be kingdom city in the end. The transformation of this area will be glorious and something to behold with the mall starting now, I wonder how far the whole kingdom city will get before KT is completed. Will it be among the last towers to complete or among the first? The side buildings are not even prep yet, but then again they will take much shorter time than this behemoth of a building. My guess would be towers rising when KT is topped out, when cladding is on and the building finished the side towers are also mostly topped out, but maybe nit finished, but it's a wild guess.

Oh boy...one day not in the thread and such fightings here for nothing. Why makes the thread starter not a comment in the title: Kingdom Tower (not in the desert, take a look at google earth)...

So guys to change the mood on this thread I photoshoped this tower with my favorite majestic tallest blocks on earth in Dubai. Excuse the sharp edges, it was a fast attempt

It's been 43 years since the WTC became the tallest building and in 4-5 years time we will see something roughly 2.4 times taller! If this can happen in half a lifetime, what could happen in my lifetime? I'm 16 at the moment and the world's tallest buildings are growing higher and higher every decade!

The Princess Tower seems meagrely just another tall tower amongst many others - yet the Kingdom Tower is something new!

I'm 26 now, and i hope i'll see towers up to at least 1500m or 2000m in my lifetime. Not sure how realistic that is but we'll see what happens over the next few decades
