Am I missing something?! Whatever is happening with this tower is not something we have seen before!! 2 renders we know are way far from what we have now!

Let's wait and see, I said it for a million times but this tower might be saved after all (that if they finished it this century)

I agree, would not be the best beauty but even o.k. Everytime someone is making fun about the time this tower needs i have to LOL..
But who knows the cologne cathredral is beautiful and also needs in fact hundreds of years to be complete

Perhaps it's a stupid question but...
What i don't understand is the process how this tower becomes builded. When a building is on hold nothing happens. When it's under construction you see progress.
In this case some weeks you see nothing, than you see slow progress, than nothing again and so on...
Is there always a certain amount of money (like a monthly rate) available and when it's spend construction stopped? Somehow it seems to me there are only one or two workers operating

Al Attar apparently has it's own construction schedules. With 6 day weekends and two person shifts

This isn't a crown this is a circus tent without the tarpaulin. Ridiculous

Where are all haters at? This one had lately a surge of unexpected construction progression

Comparing a pic from Feb and 11 April, it is quite obvious the progression on the cladding from the back side and it is clear because you can notice
the difference in dust level which is alongside the black line in the third image posted! That with the progression on closing up the backside of the crown!

The parking structure at the back has been 60% (my estimate) clad as well
