That's why I am saying development of the whole Kingdom district might not be as fast as Dubai was during the construction boom but I have no doubt that it will happen with time, I mean for crying out loud this tower will be higher than 1000m that is enough without having anything around it to make it a city center.

Who told you of the project is only the Kingdom Tower ? It was a huge project . Giant city Saudi Arabia different from the United Arab Emirates because Saudi Arabia does not need foreign tourists and foreign investment because it has a lot of businessmen And do not forget Jeddah near the site of Mecca and Medina We are the first among Arab countries the number of foreign visitors And the first Arab to attract foreign investment Also it has been easing foreign investor restrictions and reached to 100% ownership in the reign of King Salman and a lot of changes

Ok you can't compare the entire country of Saudi Arabia to a city (Dubai) anw I am happy things are changing ... Hopefully Jeddah will become an international tourist destination when this project is done.

I'm not jealous of Dubai Dubai is part of the Gulf States There is a common goal between the UAE and Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Gulf countries to achieve economic integration and diversification of the economy away from oil . This will be led by Dubai, Doha, Jeddah, Riyadh , Abu Dhabi and Kuwait .

I think the structure just reached the point where it's taller than wider According to some blueprints, the turning point should be just under 23rd floor.

From the most recent photos it surely looks like that. What do you think guys?

Not quite yet, I think the tower will pass that milestone once level 26 has been fully cast (up to level 27 slab height).
Only then it will be officially taller than it is wider (if you are referring to the greatest breadth of the tower's Y plate - which is approximately 110 metres wide at the base).

WE ARE PROUD OF OUR RELIGION AND OUR CULTURE, NOT LIKE YOU. CHANGING WILL BE IN A REALISTIC REANGE NOT MORE THAN THAT.

And the Goals of both governments are away different! Dubai's goal is to have a tourism as No.1 revenue. Saudi Arabia doesn't have the same goal. If we want to have money through the tourism, we can get it from the Annual session (Hajj which is now happening). But we spend more than anyone else think!

(The vision is away different)

Saudi Arabia first among Arab in the number of visitors " 17 million visitors " And Saudi Arabia aspires to increase it to twice in the next 5 years.

I did not understand the last text . But tourism is the Tours of any kind and Jeddah relative religious sites in Saudi Arabia, a gate of the Two Holy haramin, tourism and hotel project completely good was superior to Dubai Situated Jeddah Strategic whether the number of visitors from abroad 17 million , if the sleeve will be visitors to Jeddah from the inside ? ( Saudi Arabia's population of 30 million ) and make up the largest percentage of tourists in Dubai and Bahrain.

Look to be honest I love all cultures and religions and I want Saudi Arabia to loosen up laws and regulations because I would love to be able to visit not only this tower someday but Makkah as well and get up close and personal with the Islamic religion and all holy sites in the country which is not possible at the moment and I am sure Saudi Arabia will have an even higher number of tourists if they do that.
