I wouldn't get our hopes up to high. The Cityscape Jeddah event is in June 11-13 2011. They maybe waiting for that event.

But hopefully we get a few tidbits from Cityscape Riyadh. This event runs until tomorrow, so they might be "presenting" tuesday.

I'm pretty sure that after prince al-waleed bin talal announced that the kingdom tower's construction will start in 3 weeks someone told him that there will be a cityscape Jeddah in six months, and it's better to start at this moment.


So, all what we have to do is to kill this man

Hi all.

- holy moly ...
The project will start if and when all the cards fall into place.
The word that the soil testing showed the piling/barrett plan was not sufficient means a new foundation plan was needed - and possibly some revisions to the structure plan.

Unfortunately it could be some time ...

Hi all.

Altin posted the info I quoted. He has a little birdie ...
His post was on the soil tests not passing. My take is the new foundation plan needed.

Thanks for the vote of confidence Dino.

Yeah loads, they've started construction, built the first 100 stories and the design is truly stunning. We've all got thousands of pictures of the construction, but the people on this forum don't bother updating this thread with such things as we just can't be arsed.


[/sarcasm]

News will be posted here as and when things happen. If you want an update every day get a piece of paper, write "nothing has happened with the Kingdom Tower" and read it every day.
