Which is going to be the final design if the KC?




This

There was another

Once someone said it hasn't been decided yet, in that case, does someone know when?

The triangular design is the most suitable for such heights. Lake and fountains are an artificial oasis in the middle of desert

Is it possible that the budget cuts by Crown Prince can harm the project?

Probably not the tower, but the whole neighborhood?

It's just you.

I just wonder if the investor is taking a cash flow look at all this in the current oil pricing market. Brave financier if ever......

I highly doubt he even cares what the price of oil is. It's like 1% of his over all portfolio

In terms of structure much like the Burj Khalifa . Because this type of structural stiffness significantly increased . That's why a very high altitude . In addition to first class brick covered there . Because the brick buildings is not economically for it
