I spy rebar for columns starting to go up outside of the core. They may have finally gotten serious about building this thing.

Can anyone explain the thing in the middle east where the building is JUST BARELY under construction, for years?

Is it a finance thing; a regulation thing?

Unless you count the rebar, the core hasn't grown any in two months, though the outer columns have. I think it must be a 12-man crew building the whole thing, with just one of them being a crane operator who climbs up to whichever crane is most needed that day.

Slow construction on this one

Not 100% I like the design but its certainly defferent

I want to see it finished

I would say never. It looks like those are the floor slabs they've already poured. I always wondered how this building would ever be feasible.

1st, each unit would essentially be cantilevered, which would make this the most complex building ever made with so many cantilevers half on top other cantilevers.
2nd, doing so you lose about 80% of potential floor space. I think the final tower is going to be a round cylinder just like every other round tower out there.

Hory shet, progress.

@AnOldBlackMarble This is the conical base but they didn't add the sloped edges yet.

Maybe. Who knows. I'll be dead and this thing will still be under construction.

But if they're not going to build from original renders , why do they left on the sides many of valves ?
