When I saw the news about Saudi Arabia securing funds for building this tower I finally accepted the fact that they're facing bacrupcy. Kinda unbelieveable that such a dollar-rich country needs to secure funds for this tower.

I'm not so sure about that... Even some news sites are using that new name, check this one out.

Also, I found some news reporting that Jeddah could be translated as Kingdom in english... Only an arabic speaker could confirm that to us...

What I find funny is how we basically knew that this tower existed long before the "general public" cared after CNN introduced it to them. That's why I don't like to depend on FB and CNN on telling me what's going on the the world when I have SSC.

Most of the general public doesnt care anyway, which is why it isnt widely reported. Dont think yourself superior.

It's interesting to note how media are imprecise when they are about skyscrapers.

I have a doubt in renders i've seen three different types of skyscrapers around, one with small ones, another with many and 2 very tall very close and another with less skyscrapers which is the definitive ? Have they decided it?
