It's been explained before that they won't start with it until they're done with the spire as they need the back side crane.

The hilal (moon) is almost 30m tall

I think someone said it's 580m tall by now and culwulla diagram shows the same,while until now the hilal (moon) is the only thing missing to T/O ,so it shoud be 30m tall and this is too much ,isn't it?

I keep referring to this building as Abraj al - Bait but the people I know refer it to Zamzam Towers. What is the name for this?

It's Abraj al Bait towers. Maybe ppl call them Zamzam towers because the ''Zamzam tower'' was about the first to be built/complete.
