I don't speak arabic, but what i can understand is probably universal. He talks about how dedicated he is to get this tower built. I also understand that he talks about billions of dollars, but I can't make up in which sentence he means. He also appears not to brag, but instead he is proud.

General talk, 4 floors per week, finance is 100% covered, this project being privately financed cannot be delayed, and that the project at the end will cost ~20 billion dollars.

The word "Burj" means tower in Arabic. He didn't mention other projects in the talk.

I think it's not physically possible to pour 4 storeys a week.. the concrete needs to dry to a certain degree until the formwork can jump... unless they pour two floors at once

Then its a good thing they're doing a floor every 4 days, or a little less than two floors a week.

It seems that way. It does not show up in any of new renders.

They will have to cancel the platform, even if they didn't do it yet. At least in it's original shape.

In that video, are they using the theme song from Iron Man?

One floor every 4 days, so almost two a week.

The prince in one time said every 4 days and another time said ever week. So it's in this range.

We could always use our advanced powers of observation and count how many days it takes to pour a floor, and then how many more days it takes to do another floor.

Each floor has different height, area, and design. I think the "4 days" period is an approximation.
