If they don't speed up now it's not unlikely that the Dubai tower will overtake them.

I think it would overtake even if dubai tower started a year or so down the road. I get the strange feeling that thing is mostly just an elevator. Im curious to volume of concrete used between the two towers. Also, like burj Dubai, Jedda has design. The dubai tower looks like a kids rocket or something you could get at the Pleasure Chest.

I remember the video you said, it was incredible, I've searched several times but never found it on YouTube ... It showed the construction process in a very real way!

Just wondering if this new development will have any bearing on this project.

Saudi cuts projects with petrol dollars down

Quote:
Saudi Arabia’s government is ordering its ministries and agencies to review billions of dollars’ worth of unfinished infrastructure and economic development projects with a view to shelving or restructuring them, government sources said.

Riyadh’s Bureau of Capital and Operational Spending Rationalization, set up last year to make the government more efficient, is compiling a list of projects that are under 25 percent complete, the sources told Reuters.

Many of these projects are relics of a decade-long boom of high oil prices and lavish state spending, which ended when oil began sliding in mid-2014, making it increasingly difficult for Riyadh to find the money needed to complete their construction.

Again: JT has little to do with "oil dollars".
It is financed by the Prince and his company.


Fayzoon, please help defend this thread against people complaining about "oil dollars" again and again....!
Will they never learn...?
