They will be built, in time. Just check the renders posted elsewhere in this thread. It's just that it's easier to build this tower without surrouding it with other construction sites.

Like in Dubai. When construction started on Burj Khalifa, there was nothing around it. When construction was well advanced, they started building around it.

The floor sign on the wing now reads 017. They haven't fixed the one on the core (still says 0).

Saying a tower will be built with a height like this is starting to be a usual silly joke these days .. building for real is what actually attract people's attention

KT is for real, and will be 1000+.
(Although many people still have their doubt. But they will be wrong.)


The proposed tower for Basra is still a "vision" at this moment, but not fully unrealistic. It's technically possible to build it.
But getting it feasible and financed is another thing. That's less realistic.

Lovin' the time-lapse.

Is anybody working on a long-term time-lapse to show the whole construction? If I might add a suggestion (I do some video work): use images from roughly the same time each day so the lighting is consistent (the above time-lapse does this). It prevents that distracting effect that happens when time-lapses have light and dark images, and it will make a much better looking finished video piece.

I'm doing it. Obviously, I take a picture everyday at noon, don't worry
There will be 10 days per second, so it will be approximately 4 time faster than the website timelapse.
Unfortunately, the camera moves a lot and I'ill have to crop some pics ...
I will actualize it by the end of december.

It will probably be like the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. They will build around the tower after some time, but it will still take more than a decade after its completion to fill all plots around it.

A city is ever planned, isn't it ? It's Kingdom City.

They did put a lot of effort into the design of the bride tower. The idea seems very well thought about and might be not so crazy after all. But I do keep in mind that this is also the way this architect group works. One major pain in the ass might be the war however...
