Guys they didn't mess it up .. That floor is a mechanical floor! They have several of these floors throughout the building and a 4m Ceiling height isn't enough they have to make that specific floor taller to put these machines. Don't worry chill out.

So whats the chance this project making it through? Saudi's economy is the toilet, right now the're burning through their reserves. They're fighting a war on the southern border and now want to wade into Syria. The construction sector is hardest hit, with companies struggling to pay workers:

Guys as a community what do you think about Kingdom Tower and the new Iconic Tower of Dubai? Which one do you want to be taller and why? I want The Kingdom Tower to be taller and I want it to hold the record for some time. What about you?

In the end there is someone who will build taller than the Jeddah tower and I prefer it to be Dubai over other "alien" cities! anyhow that's not the thread to discuss this over and Jeddah tower will hold the title for years before the new Dubai tower pass its height (that if it was taller) so I don't see why should we worry now!

How is discussing the economic feasibility of a project "political?"

the chances are zero cause the owner of the tower already had secured financing to complete the tower its funny that you have time to read about saudi's economy but you dont have time to read about the project itself
