those walls are so slim (from the satellite). Its hard to believe that all building based on so slim bearing walls able to reach 1000m+...

KSA being completely off-limits to outsiders, and very sparsely populated, why are they constructing these garish edifices?

The outside world will never know anyway.

Excuse me for pointing out what may be quite obvious - but are they really suspending the temporary works to construct the slabs above level 7, so that they can build up the concrete floors from the basements simultaneously? Or am I reaching to some very outlandish conclusion of my own?

First of all, KSA must allow tourism to flourish. Otherwise, who will care about the Kingdom Tower.

Look at Burj Dubai, the whole world wants to visit.

Hi folks! Do we know the planned date for finishing this tower?

I agree that KSA needs more tourists to become second Dubai... At the moment it's quite difficult to go and "visit". Especially for single women

Dubai Airport (2014)




Jeddah Airport (2012)




And we don't have a tourism visa yet

well I'm not against it, but there are millions of illegal immigrant in the country, and the government is struggling with that.
Anyway, I don't see a problem if they regulate a tourism visa for some countries.

true, you can't ignore the MUSLIM tourists.. they visit mecca by the millions.. and the only way to reach mecca is through Jeddah's airport (a new giant airport will finish construction very soon)...

i hope that tourists of all races and religions gets to visit this country one day and bring our worlds together.. but like u said a lot in the country has to change first.
