BK had serious delays with the cladding since the original manufacturer became bankrupt. They had to find a new one and lost a lot of time because of that.
My guess is, that cladding will start as soon as the tower reaches 300m.

Nobody. Someone was just confusing the numbers.

I have a plan B for visiting this tower. A local newspaper will give me a press credential if everything works as planed. Maybe this will get me close enough to the tower. But i am not sure if i should visit the tower during the construction or wait till it`s finished.

But i hope they will change the visa regulation. In the news i see a lot of changes in SA recently. Tourism would help to diversify the economy.
Diversifying the economy, perhaps through promotion of Tourism for non-Muslim, would be a great thing for the country. Above all that, I love my head and I can't look up a kilometer high building while my head falls off.

The very first concept for this project was a 1600m tower. But the height changed pretty fast to 1000m.

I agree that the location seems strange. It seems that there are no other tall buildings surrounding it.

For that they must adjust some laws.
Even Dubai is sometimes tricky for a women and the shaik must safe the day sometimes because of bad publicity.

I think it will be focused more for Muslim tourists.

There are no words to describe how ridiculous was the initial design of 1600m, in every particular detail and the whole concept in general

So, all of this 1600 m discussion is just because someone said: wow! 1600 m ?

It's really nice to play with you guys

All Muslim tourist already visit Mekkah. If they want a relaxed environment they visit Dubai.

The potential for muslim tourists in SA is not very high.
But i would like to visit Jeddah and Mekkah outside of Ramadan. I think the economic situation will force them to change many things. Tourism laws will be one of those things. They don`t want a future like North Korea.

This thread is about this tower not the country's laws! Please let's focus on what matters here and avoid out of topic discussions!

There really seems to be very little actual floor space.

There is indeed in relation to the core, but there is still many free square meters.
