True, but towers in KAFD are very close and usually appear together in every update.

I'm against that idea, every supertall needs an own thread for easy find and reference. An additional cbd thread I don't mind though, but deleting single building threads is a step back I dislike.

But merging means you make 1 thread out of several different threads. But we need an own thread for every supertall.

You could make a CBD thread with the single tower threads, just like the Moscow IBC. There's one thread for each tower and a thread for all of them in general, so we could do the same for Riyadh's CBD.

Sorry for joining the off-topic train but.. what's the point of these CBD threads anyway? It's not like we open threads for Downtown Dubai,Business Bay, Hudson Yards NYC and so on.
IMHO the supertall forum should be strictly for supertalls only and all the CBD developments belong into the local forums.

We prefer to disaggregate mega-project threads wherever possible. This way people following a particular tower can know about its status without having to dig through pages of other stuff. If all the towers were of equal height and had the same designs, keeping everything in a single thread would make sense and we've had a few of those. But with towers of varying heights, designs and timeframes for construction, it's always better if they can have separate threads.

Plus merging mature threads wrecks the flow of posts and conversation. It becomes a soup of fragmented replies that could end up referring to a post 3 pages back instead of the post above.

Do not mix it up. Vostok is East. Now it's called Federation Complex, not tower, cause it's not a single tower, but two.
MOSCOW | Federation - East Tower | 373m | 1224ft | 95 fl | U/C
