The last thing they are worried about is building a skyscraper.

ATM will exhaust them militarily, politically, and financially.

It's expensive fighting wars, especially if your on the losing side, and there's always a price to be paid.
Russia has committed significant financial and military resources into the Syrian conflict despite it being severely affected by the oil-glut, crumbling currency and soaring inflation all combined with Crimean sanctions. Saudi Arabia is cushioned by a reserve with no financial commitments other than humanitarian aid when it comes to Syria.

Just to prove my point that the kingdom economic situation is strong and not a tower or oil price is going to affect its ambitions, here is the thread for one of the world's largest railways being constructed at the capital Riyadh.

Good luck with your change into modernt times, if that was done earlier you wouldn't be so exposed today.



If your up for it we could discuss your shady human rights record towards your own people, and the stone age politics you export abroad.

Are you changing the topic now?
I have my credible sources, because I was born, raised and lived all my live in this country and I'm proud.
Saudi Arabia is the world's no.1 country in terms of donations to crisis all over the world. Have you heard about that?
That's a reason to make me believe that the media is brainwashing your minds and not showing the entire truth.

I encourage you and everybody here to know more about KSA from the inside, I'm sure you will be surprised and change many of your views.

I am sorry to cause inconvenience to some of the readers here in this thread. It is just too harsh for me to accept the repetitive comments from simple-minded people here who always associate the slow progress of KT with the economy, politics, human rights... etc. etc. of the Kingdom. Moderators need to do better job to keep the discussion technical and not to allow some people to insult other people's country.

Hope to see the Tower finished. And LMAO people (specially those supporting Russia) criticizing Saudi Arabia of Human Rights violations.... classic case of pot calling the kettle black.

I think the mods should change the title to "On Hold" now. No work at all at the site right now - it's been sitting at the same height for... about a month?

Sad but true.

I agree. We all really want to believe that it is still u/c, but right now there hasn't been a sign of activity for too long. We should face the truth and change it to on hold. You can just change it back when it's under construction again.. It would also be a lot easier, since you don't always have to visit the thread to find out if activity is going on. You'll notice as soon as the titte changes back to u/c again

Not a good sign. Those of you that are there..watch for signs that the contractors are demobilizing, such as heavy equipment leaving the site. That's what tipped us off in the U.S. when the Chicago Spire died...

The project did not die, it is delayed and will come back to its construction in September
