My Avast Antivirus reminds me that this website has a virus or worm, namely html.lframe.inf.

Is that really a virus or just normal script?






Cheers!

Well it's approved and will be U/C soon. That means Burj Dubai will be the tallest for maybe 7 years, or maybe more. It will take a time to finish a tower that tall.

Emaar to develop mega Saudi project


Reuters
Published: June 14, 2009, 00:04


Riyadh: Saudi-based Kingdom Holding Co said on Saturday it has appointed Emaar Properties as lead developer of a large property project that will feature the world's tallest tower.

Emaar will be in charge of developing and supervising the construction of Jeddah Kingdom City land and Kingdom Tower, said an e-mailed statement from Kingdom Holding, which is 95 per cent owned by billionaire Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal.

"Emaar was selected... for their previous proven experience in the development of mega projects, their knowledge of the area and social setup," it said.

The project, with a total investment of at least 100 billion riyals (Dh100 billion), will be located in the Red Sea port city of Jeddah, Kingdom Holding added.

Sounds like when this one is completed in a few more months, we'll be able to put the Kingdom Tower as the Sticky for World's Tallest Structure.

Kind of a shame that Burj Dubai won't enjoy the title world's tallest building for long.

Hi all.

I think it is good news that Emaar is getting involved in the Kingdom Tower. Hopefully Nakheel will keep on keepin' on with the Nakheel Tower and we will have 2 WTS's racing for the title.

The BD will hold the title for 8 to 10 years IMO - that's how long it will take to build the next WTS.

In recent pics the crane seems to have been lowered some more but none are very clear or close up shots. I guess we will know soon enough.

The render of the Kingdom Tower are probably not the final renders, if it will be build like that, would be really ugly and very thin.

Yes, this is correct. Taipei 101 is still the "Worlds Tallest Building"; and has been since 2004. On September 9th of this year the Burj Dubai will Officially become the, "Worlds Tallest Building".
Even if the Kingdom Tower does get built. It won't take over the title of WTB until it's completion. Which could be several years after it surpasses BD.

Crazy moments in Skyscrapercity right now !!!!!



Kingdom Tower will be construct by Emaar the tower will be at least 1100m tall . But the height is secret they say it can even 1450m high to.

By the way the Burj is very very nice building. And will hold the title at least for 5 years (i think) 7.
