You think it is ugly, I think it is pretty nice. Maybe it's just blocking you guy's view. I feel all right about it. The observation deck is pretty nice.
Hope it can be completed quicker, still 227 meters to go and cladding should be faster. Can't wait to go there.

Still 227 meters to go! That made me realize how incredibly tall this thing will be once finished. I honestly cannot wait to see it finished, meanwhile I'll enjoy the construction updates.

Makkah Royal Clock Tower is one building. I don't know if it is more expensive. It belongs to the complex Abraj Al-Bait Endowment.

It looks like construction may have stopped for Chinese New Year.

Oh so we get to learn that the openings which allow wind flow are not only mechanical but also architectural (thanks to the video). That's great, so basically they'll use them as some sort of terraces, especially the hotel which will include parts of the building's top spaces seems to appreciate this parts of the building as a great outdoor place to go out of the building.

One new floor every 5 days. Not bad!
Is it a record??
How does it compare to the other 600 meter buildings like Ping An in Shenzhen or Shanghai Tower??

The contrast between this tower and the surroundings is gigantic unfortunately.

no, of course not as the inbox description of the latest 4th video states, it will be 636m tall https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1R_1rtt6fM

the increase of height at the different design stages over the years in the introduction with the blueprint-like images and the geometrical forms from 0:53 minutes till 1:18 is intentionally displayed in a silent way

first 450m, then the height got changed to 518m, then again increased to 606m;
the final design, however is still planned to a tip height of 636m
