Blimey, looks like this is going to be built at a very fast pace. It's not particularly clear to me what 'it' really is, in terms of will it have useable space or is it more of an amazing observation platform, from which you could look down at BK....

But I'm guessing the less useable space it has, the less services, windows etc. The quicker it will go up. Maybe it will overtake Kingdom tower in 18 months?

It could indeed overtake JT.
Time will tell.


But the first 800 m or so is the easy part.
Then come the cables, and then the "bulb".
And the higher it gets, the more time consuming.

Very true. If this one will rise in a similar speed it'll overtake JT without a problem think.

Yeah chances are it will. Even at its fastest JT was always slow.

I was saying that to myself yesterday too. Even if JT gets back on a 3-4 day/floor schedule, there's no way it'll stay ahead of the Tower now. Since The Tower is probably pouring a simple cylinder without comparatively much in the way of floors or structural complexity, it should hopefully be able to maintain a quick pumping schedule.

Unless the Saudis are wanting to stall JT just to see how high The Tower will go and modify JT to beat it. But we're talking 300+ meters difference here probably if guesses are on point. I don't think they can just "mod" JT to cover that much of a height difference.

As promised by Emaar, this is now above ground level before 2018, I love how the district is all coming along .. residential towers are all U/C, mall is U/C and a tower is U/C, Downtown Dubai 2.0

Just to recap on the speed of this thing:

12/10/2016 - groundbreaking ceremony

--- 225 days later ---

25/05/2017 - foundation complete

--- 205 days later ---

16/12/2017 - concrete core above ground level

Emaar basically slipped the news in one of their new HD screens in Dubai Mall .. before they notice the big spoiler and take it out of the Emaar ad and replaced it with something else ... Add to that we got the official elevators charts and last floor is somewhere above 1000m, around 1124m if I am not mistaken, it was posted a while back.


here is the post

(Dubai Mall's new screen, 700sqm), from 20sec. to 26sec.

Here is how I proceeded...

212 500 000 px (~ Dubai Creek Tower equivalent) X 8 = 1 700 000 000 px
130 769 230 (Burj Khalifa equivalent) X 13 = 1 700 000 000 px

Cross products (proportions) :
212 500 000px X 828m (BK) : (~ 130 769 230 px) = 1345, 5m (DCT)

Felt like forever since someone did one of these update diagrams for Dubai. I'll use this opportunity to keep track of the Creek Tower's construction timeline.
