Either this building is rising or it isn't .

Most of the skeptics live in America as long as that's the case then construction should stay on schedule.

Yeah, pretty sure it's paid for. The extra income generated from apartment and other sales is just a nice starting point for return even if the tower itself may not recoup investment. What I mean is the Prince and others aren't having to rely on the sale of units in the building to finance its construction or say, take out a bank loan, as far as I'm aware.

There will always be skeptics. I remember people saying there's no way the Burj Dubai / Burj Khalifa would be built, built to full height, built soundly and that it'd fall over, built only to be empty, never filled, never make money, and so on and so on. Yet, I'm pretty darned sure Emaar and SoM planned the project very well with incredibly reasonable rates of return.

I think KT will be just fine

I'm really curious how you're able to type out a response...I mean, clearly your fingers are being used to plug your ears while you scream "I can't hear you!!!" to anything negative that might distort your superficial view on these situations.

However, because you called the Guardian unreliable (which, lol, if you know anything outside of big phallic towers, your comment would be so pathetically obvious of your age and/or intellect), I'm just going to assume that you'd only take Al Jazeera as a "reliable source", and since that's owned by Qatar...not much you're gonna find there.

Since it`s the first construction in the area, it it hard to get a sense of scale because there`s nothing to compare it to in pics.
