Still rising. That's good news.
Let's hope they speed up again soon.

yeah, the delay could have been longer if a lack of funds was preventing progress

still, i am very positive that no matter what delay, the tower would have been ultimately finished some day, like the Ryugyŏng-Hotel which, after intial construction from 1987-1992 was on hold till 2008
of course there is reason for doubt, that the interior isnt finished nor is there a demand big enough to use the full space

also, besides the heavy reliance on structural concrete and the Y footprint (which is a lot bigger in Ryugyong), there isnt much in common...

I'm sure once the proverbial (and literal) dust is settled, we can really learn as to what caused the delays. For example we all recalled the issue with the exterior cladding for Burj Khalifa, which eventually was explained as a mixture of manufacturing requirements, company bankruptcy, and other delays / change of suppliers - once cladding appeared on the building, more articles and specialists spoke on the mater and the tower was completed.

Whether JT / KT's issues really stem from a lack of contractor payment or something else entirely, we can only speculate for now. But I'm in agreement with Meehooowk, that eventually this tower will be finished. Too much is already invested not to, IMO.

Still, completion for the tower in 2019 is stated.
That's only 2,75 years to go.

Indeed, even topping out until 2019 will be a problem if they don't speed up now.

Thanks, Rody! That proves for sure that the tower is under construction again.

The is no consyruction company on Earth that can realize completion of this tower in 2019.
No matter how many resources are put on the project.

Based on the current situation and prospects (as we mainly know from this forum), my estimate is topping out in 20121/22, not earlier.
When a sudden unexpected speed-up happens, topping out in 2020 could happen...

There are many renders in this forum thread.
Also, google on "Jeddah Tower" and select the images part.

Wish that someone from inside the project could post a real project planning for JT on this forum.
And same for the other large projects...
