Think the much more likely event is that somebody runs out of money and it is never built!

We are not here to compare any city with another, specially the U.A.E cities as we "As Saudis" love the U.A.E as if it's our own country for many many reasons.
How about reading something trustworthy?

Sky Lobbies :

Nestled within the Tower among the different Tiers, occupying levels 42, 43, and 84, visitors will witness the vastness of the sky lobbies, defined as identical levels in which coffee shops, restaurants, showrooms, in addition to Spas and gyms offering unsurpassed wellness services to its visitors, delivering a world-class identity, are situated.

Indeed, the sky lobby, situated at a high level of the Tower, elevates your senses as well as your imagination of the possibilities of redefining what a lobby is capable of being.

Are women allowed not to wear Niqāb inside?

it's good they built this in Jeddah...it is much easier to go to Jeddah and be a tourist/traveler....Jeddah has a great potential in becoming a great Global City and surprisingly very diverse.

Niqāb? Oh, c'mon, there are much weirder stuff there than niqāb.
Becoming a great Global City? Not until they stop those barbarian practices of clitoral amputation for almost all young females!

Why are you questioning about it in future time? As if there is no prostitution in KSA, only angels are walking on the streets, hormonless. Sorry saudis, you can't beat your Mother-Nature, even if you really-really believe in one of the 3820 gods

Why is it that I read the same xenophobic crap over and over again.

Do the people who post think thar it hasn't been posted a thousand times already- and been deleted again?

Or do you think you'll "convert" the Saudis (who by the way keep this thread moving forward by posting pics) to your way of thinking by insulting them?

Lord give me patience!

So, anyone know how they got this tower for such a low price? Much shorter towers have had much higher budgets than this one. like double the price.

So from your comment The Shard Baby I'm guessing the actual city won't be built until late 2015 to early 2016 at earliest.

I don't think you've been to Jeddah before, have you? IDK, but Jeddah is far different from Riyadh(I'm not a fan) or any other place in Saudi...its much more open to westerners and like I''ve said it is surprisingly very diverse...

that's why I'm glad they are building this in Jeddah instead of Riyadh...
