Makes sense. If a contractor made a similar mistake in the US (with crane or other trades and fabricators), the media would have a field day, construction would be fined, work stopped etc. Not saying that the Mecca accident was what stopped Kingdom Tower but it probably certainly forced SBG to reevaluate its safety standards and practices.

Funny how they are so convinced about the height of 928m. It's so obvious that this tower is going to be taller than Jeddah Tower

The funny thing is that Jeddah Tower construction started years before the Tower Dubai, yet the construction is so slow the it'll probably never be the worlds tallest building! Hahaha

I hope Emaar will at least reveal that it will be higher than 1KM to increase the media expectations a bit

In most of the photos you can see machinery in the background even though they are different angles , it's amazing! Can't wait to get more and more frequent updates!

This might turn out to be like Dubai downtown development all over again in scale and activity. Especially if they start up with the Meydan Project masterplan also.

First they have the Burj Khalifa, and now this 1km+ building? It's insane to think that the two tallest buildings in the world (not counting the Jeddah Tower) will be so close to each other!
