Kingdom Tower is not under construction. I don't find the video that impressive for anyone interested enought to know something about the towers, but man, MGS2 opening theme is such a kick ass. Awesome job by Gregson-Williams.

From what I can gather most of the other marina supertalls seem to have slowed right down as they near completion, yet this one is racing onwards.
Will this one eventually slowdown like the others have?
Does anyone know the developers reasons for doing things that way? Or am I just wrong in my impression?

I'm not sure what you mean. As soon as a building tops out, focus shifts to the cladding and the interior. As long as you cannot see inside, it seems that things slow down.

I was thinking of the likes of infinity tower, which seems to have stalled on the last few floors.

Nice one PrincessTower,

Looks like we can now see some tapered transfer struts. Man it really thins out at the bottom of the building!!

Really impressive sight. I wonder what the rate of constructing floors will be when the core and smaller floors have speed up?

what seems to be taking time now is the welding of those steel sections inside the concrete columns. there's a lot of wire rope bracing which need to be removed prior to putting up the next floor (my guess).

once they get to a few floors up, no more steel sections and they'll be able to speed up.

the fact that there are steel columns inside these concrete columns says this structure's working hard!! nice and slender!

No new core level, but these could be the first regular floors that are slowly taking shape. Those beams are a nice playground for frenetic ladder-climbers right now btw.

Whatever happened to Imre?
I always had a feeling that he was working on behalf of the Dubai authorities (helping to publicise what was happening there).
Whether that was right or wrong it seems odd that he stopped posting all of those fabulous updates as things were slowing down over there.
