You can't compare this splinter to Ryugyong Hotel, which is a masterpiece of style. It is a definition of style.

I can say, for sure, that this building's air conditioning bill will be huge.

Are you mentally handicapped? I said Ryugyong Hotel, not N.Korea. But this alone has so much style, that if you try to argue about that, I will prove you have no idea about the style.

You are totally right!To bad that progress at Ryugyong is running backwards. It will still be under construction by the time Kingdom Tower is long finished.

Wow! There are about 10 supertalls in that render and so many more high rise skyscrapers! Are those the almost finalised designs of some of the Kingdom City towers which we are seeing for the first time?!

Fantastic diagram alsaif2012! Keep them up! I really do miss this project myself!
