I went with 1100m, per the recent rumors.
is it already uploaded to the SSP diagrams? cant seem to find it. there is "mile-high tower" only for jeddah, they should rename it to kingdom tower one day.

edit: found your post there comparing it to NYC buildings, very cool, but still cant find it on the diagrams

Like I said, it's in the "pending approval" section, which requires you to have an illustrator account on the main site, not the forum.

I haven't found Kingdom Holding Company on Cityscape's list of exhibitors. That can't be good. Emaar, whose a partner on the project, will be there. But they're showcasing their own projects. No mention of Kingdom Tower...

Better edit your post, or fayzoon may actually do it

Rody already told us that the project is on, and it most likely will be shown to the public at the end of the year. There was nothing to expect now. As long as Rodys informations are correct I'm happy with what we have at the moment.

btw STR, the desing you made diagram of, will never be build. If you want make diagram of most likely design try this instead:

sorry, but what I mint is that this cityscape is the best place for the announcement of the approval only not for the beginning of the construction and if they won't do it that would be a big mistake .. and that's all !!

if they announce it they better show some renders and models again, but still they werent listed for the cityscrape so its rather unlikely then but we will see maybe on of these days they make a special announcement still.

I've been wondering about the status of this project and I thought to myself that after Cityscape ends and we see no sign of the Mile High Tower, this should be changed to either 'vision' or 'cancelled' alltogether.

fayzoon im with you. you know im sceptical about it, but with the hope i'm on your side. i still think this project can be the next record holder for the tallest and i hope by the end of the year we get some more preparation progress and next years actually foundation and maybe the start of building up

I didn't wanted to be party breaker when you guys started countdown, so I didn't said anything..

But now I can't resist to say "I TOLD YOU SO" that there's not gonna be anything on the cityscape..

Freakin' annoying fayzoon with his freakin' "wait until june 11th"..
I can't believe you actually made people believe you and wait for that freakin' Cityscape..

I wouldn't be surprised if you are the guy who predicted the end of the world and made people believe that..
