Kingdom Tower to launch residential sales this year
gulfnews
Jeddah’s one-kilometre high Kingdom Tower is already racking up construction records

PUBLISHED: 16:22 MAY 10, 2015 Gulf News
BY MANOJ NAIR, ASSOCIATE EDITOR
Dubai: The first sale of apartments at the world’s tallest skyscraper in the making, the Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, should begin later this year. The build up towards the launch of the development — billed as the ‘kilometre-high tower’ — has already stoked immense interest, according to a top executive with the Jeddah Economic Co., the developer of the high-rise as well as of ‘The Kingdom City’ that will surround it.

Indicative prices of what the prices could be were not provided. The Burj Khalifa is 829.8 metres high.
The Kingdom Tower will have 61 storeys assigned for the residential component featuring 318 apartments. (Other floors will feature a hospitality component and offices.)
“Obviously, there are — and will be — record applications for ... Saudi and Gulf investors are eligible to buy and so are foreign buyers provided they meet certain conditions,” said Mounib Hammoud, CEO of JEC, which was set up in 2009 and whose capital has a book value of Dh8.7 billion.

The big delay was just the facade. Maybe there were some smaller delays but as Altin already said, this 828m tower has been build in below 6 years and that's pretty fast!

I'm sure he just meant the façade and cladding. But aside from that as was said, constructing a tower of that magnitude (and any skyscraper), even if meticulously planned, can still run into delays. The BK finishing in less than six years is fine and even then, that probably accounted from planning to foundation to opening, not just the physical construction.

The new UAE/Chinese facade contractor made up the time lost by the original Swiss contractor failing badly technically and than going bust. The overall progress of the tower was not delayed because of it.

The tower was first envisioned in early 2003 and it was first presented to the public during summer of the same year. Ground work construction started in late 2004 and the official opening was in early January 2010.

So what delays was the guy talking about?
