Imagine how Adrian Smith must feel to have designed the world's two tallest buildings in a row.

Is that a shot from the pouring of the 3rd wing? Or from the Core?

Not that one, too much glass and not enough metal.

It's sticking out quite a ways and squared off so looks like the third wing. But it'd be nice for confirmation to be sure

Perhaps that taller bit of rebar is the start of the core?

I really suggest this thread to be renamed to :

JEDDAH | Kingdom Tower | 1000m+ | 3300ft+ | 170 fl | U/C

We are not 100% sure of the 1007m height ..

Which is what separates him from any other Architect. Name another Architect that had(at one time) four designed buildings on the top 10 tallest?

Smith didn't need SOM, they needed him. Their work hasn't been as imaginative since he left. And let's not forget that Smith is also designing the master plan for the Astana 2017 World Expo.

I wonder if the core-raft is completed already. Some pics from above would be interesting.

no surrounding buildings make it hard to get pictures from above and looks like you can't get too close to the construction either.

No man. These few days without pics lead me to believe that this tower will never happen. How could all of you have been so naive to think that this could possibly ever happen?
