According to architect Adrian Smith, work at the Kingdom Tower will begin in January 2012.
Most of the permits are granted and the design of the Kingdom Tower advanced rapidly. Also, new details about the Kingdom Tower were revealed.
Starting with the 158th floor, a single apartment will be built on 6 floors. This single apartment will boast 2,787-sq. metres.
On the 157th floor of the tower, a 25 meter wide terrace will be placed, which undoubtedly will be the world’s tallest terrace.
Mr. Smith also added that four new floors were added to the original design, thus the height of the building might also suffer modifications. No official mention of the final height was given, most probably it will be kept as a secret until the end of the project.
