Visionary ? Jeddah Tower was inspired by "The Illinois'', described in 1956 by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Yes, the pictures are great, alsaif2012. Thanks for posting all of them. I've been lurking on this thread for quite a while.

It's hard to tell from across the world, but what are they doing on the lower floors behind the scaffolds? I can't see any signs of floors being poured on the wings. I see them on the core section, obviously. How high can the scaffolds go and sustain their own weight?

yes, but soil testing proved that it would not be possible. Still, 1000m is still insane, that's like 5000 cats standing on top of each other going above the skies.

Those yellow levels are the form work. I've never seen scaffolding built on top of concrete form work like that though. Several concrete levels within the form work instead of pouring the top one the moving up.

New renders? Why?
We have the real thing now which is much more spectacular.

How JT/KT will/may look like when finished, can be seen in many renders that have been posted on this forum in the past year.

Is this the final kingdom city design, with the two towers around or is it another? Because i've seen 3 different renders of the KC and i dont know which one is the final one. .
