If you think of it as a volume and not height (which is the right way),

then, those 60 floors have almost 40% of the volume, if this is in 2 years and half, this average speed can lead to a completion in 2020 or 2021

and honestly speaking, they might be slowing down to let the new tower in Dubai finish first, I remember that it slowed down sharply and shortly after the big news in the 1st quarter of 2016

But we can't be sure, only time would tell us all the secrets in 2020

So you think with all the issues and problems ravaging this project, its Dubai new tower that is causing the slowdown?

No matter what, Dubai created this game ... no matter how long they waited they won't be able to win in this game.

It is time we enjoy the construction and stop worrying about Dubai ... Dubai is building true unique icons a decade at a time .. comparing or trying to copy Dubai will only cause despair and disappointment.

Focus on the this tower and Jeddah instead of every 10 post count, talking about Dubai ... it just take from the greatness of this project and give more credits to Dubai and making it the center of attention.

The challenge is between them and we are the winners at the end from this challenge
But, I just said maybe and there is no proof. I don't care which tower will be taller actually. The higher the better for me wherever it is located

Looks like we past another former world's tallest Woolworth Building (1913-1930).

Saudi Arabia .. officially, tourist visa for foreigners


Google translator:

Dubai - Al Arabiya Channel

The National Tourism and Heritage Authority (CNTC) has launched the Tourism Visa Program to Saudi Arabia, to be approved by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Interior in the coming days.

This visa allows those wishing to visit Saudi Arabia to obtain permits from a number of accredited tourism companies within a specific time and place schedule.
This initiative comes as part of the plans of the National Transformation Program, which will increase the economy's revenues and promote the natural, heritage, archeological and cultural destinations and elements that are usually a reference for those interested in the history of the Arabian Peninsula such as Saleh, Farsan and others.

The National Authority for Tourism and National Heritage in Saudi Arabia has launched an initiative to develop tourism destinations in line with the National Transition Program 2020. This initiative will stimulate investment in partnership with the private sector, creating new job opportunities, especially in less developed communities, In addition to diversifying the base of the national economy.

The strategic objective of the initiative is to develop new tourism destinations and develop a sustainable tourism sector, which contributes to the economic, social and cultural development of the Kingdom.
