Maybe this tower was considered as an icon and catalyst for that area of Jeddah. They have thought it will attract businesses. This plan has failed badly and they reduce the speed of construction to a minimum for god knows how long, and or might even cancel this tower according to future circumstances.

I really don´t think a country like KSA wouldn´t hurry to bring this up as fast as possible.

If they really stopped working on the project you won't be seeing all this digging on the ground as well

A very big possibility is that the concourse is being built around it now

What does the concourse have to do with the slow pace of this building?

The concourse area is big. I think the cranes on the tower can't reach far enough to lift the material that is far away from the tower and out of the concourse area

This makes no sense fayzoon. The Burj Khalifa had very simmilar circumstances when it was built. There is enough room around the Jeddah Tower for logistic so cranes can reach material that needs to be hoisted up.

@ Redzio: I guess we should just wait and see what will happen with this tower. I guess it will eventually be done, but it could take much much more time. We shouldnt forget that such a tower in a city like Jeddah ( well not just there ) must be very hard to execute, since i think the market simply doesn´t exist at all for the tower itself and also for everything considered around it. It´s also 1km + tall, something we haven´t done before ever. And even if we are able to build megatalls like crazy, this is still a challange i think.

The project is owned by Prince Alwaleed bin Talal and not by KSA as you mentioned. I'm pretty sure he is so excited for his tower to get finished at the time they selected. The country has a great future and people will buy in this tower as many rich people are in there.
