I think that is concrete former, the walls/boards for it can be seen towards the lower bit of the structure!

Also it's great having not updates monthly, not updates weekly, but updates pretty much daily!

المدينة الساحلية دخلت الموسوعة أول مرة عام 1980
بعد النافورة والسارية .. جدة تستعد لدخول "جينيس" بأطول "ناطحة سحاب"

سبق- جدة: تُوشك محافظة جدة على الدخول ضمن المدن العالمية ذات الارتفاعات الشاهقة من حيث المباني والمعالم، وذلك بتسجيلها للمرة الثانية في موسوعة جينيس للأرقام القياسية باحتوائها على أطول سارية عَلَم في العالم التي دُشِّنت، مساء أمس، الموافق لليوم الوطني ٨٤ للمملكة، بميدان خادم الحرمين الشريفين.

وكانت جدة قد دخلت لمنظومة الأرقام القياسية في المرة الأولى عام ١٩٨٠ بنافورتها الشهيرة على شواطئها تحت مسمّى نافورة الملك فهد كأطول نافورة في العالم بارتفاع ٣١٢ متراً, بينما حطّمت سارية العَلَم الحديثة الرقم القياسي المسجّل بطاجيكستان وقبلها مملكة الأردن لتسجل ارتفاعاً يزيد على ١٧١ متراً، في حين تصبح السارية الأعلى عالمياً ثاني أعلى ارتفاع بمحافظة جدة بعد نافورة الملك فهد.

وتترقب محافظة جدة مشروع ناطحة السحاب الأولى بها التي تتمثل في برج "الميل" أو برج الوليد الذي تمّ الإعلان عنه مسبقاً لتكون على موعد مع رقم جديد في جينيس وتسجل المبنى الاكثر ارتفاعا في العالم.

I'm sure it is. It has "Doka" on it and that's what they do. Also, yellow and blue seem to be their color. Awesome days

Made this off of my BK comparison awhile back . Not perfect but for those in Detroit it's a neat conceptual.

Full Size
Is that unoccupied yellow tower crane for the newly designed tall heavy lift crane that Wolffkran designed for the project. It looks a little more robust than the others.

a dream that is extremely likely to become true within our lifetime, we may even see a space elevator in 40-50 years. heck, a mile height tower we maybe even see within the next two decades.

A space elevator? Now that's something I definitely want to see! And judging by the height, it's a very small chance that would be beaten anytime soon after completion.

Well a space elevator would never be beaten by any other structure unless it gets destructed to build a newer one, but then again a space elevator would not make the race any less exciting, before burj Khalifa we also were excited about new buildings, although they all were smaller than guyed masts around the world. tallest structure and tallest building are really different stories

Space elevators aren't buildings, nor free standing structures. The only title they could claim is the largest man-made structure. Comparisions to buildings are pointless
