I wonder how many concrete floors were poured during the fastest 9 months of construction?

Could the slow progress at the top be based on contractual obligations? Maybe obligations that might go into effect at top-out?

I think it's because they had other work that was more urgent!

I think this picture shows that they got the tone of the cladding panels just right. not too shiney and not too dull;

It likely has more to do with them not having the same funding they once did...I was in Dubai about a year ago and this tower looks almost the exact same now. There is progress but very very slow.

It's a shame as I really like this tower, so unique compared to most of the ones around it.

Hopefully it finishes off sooner than later.
