It's on HOLD. It's back to where we were a year ago. Back to construction bidding...

Hi helghast.

Nice link.
Some good info and timeline of the project.

I do see this - "In H1 2011, work is expected to resume."
Some encouraging news during this hold from an actual source - versus the wishful thinking from above ...


Ray.

i would say together it makes a: at the moment it won't happen, but let's wait to the mid of the year when there might be information on actually continuing the project or cancelling the project completally.

man ,kingdom holdings company (the builder of kingdom tower) is the builder of
Makkah Clock Royal Tower Hotel which is u/c.

Source:http://www.tallestbuildingintheworld...ower+Hotel.php

And this tower will be completed at mid-2011.

Source:http://www.ausbt.com.au/hong-kong-to...hotel-in-march

And at mid-2011 the cityscape Jeddah showroom will be opened.

So, it's a very big chance ,isn't it?

Hi all.

Hi Fayzoon.

1- We all want to see this project move forward.

2 - The sources you post say nothing about this project moving ahead and furthermore have nothing to do with this project.

3 - The tallestbuildingintheworld site either hasn't been updated in a year or just has many errors. The CTBUH no longer recognizes 4 official heights and their under construction list has many entries that are incorrect.

4 - While Cityscape Jeddah may very well have a stand for this project, that in and of itself is no assurance if or when the project will begin.

I think the info on the soil test failure warranted a re-think of the foundation design and/or a total project re-design. The foundation design was only preliminary anyway as the final design would be done after the soil test info could be used. There are probably other circumstances affecting the decision to put the project on hold as well (read - money) considering bids are being tendered again.


Ray.
