or the average in the scheduled work

we can say the first 10 floors may take the longest period (perhaps a floor in almost a week)

but, the more they go up the less the floor area will be according to the design ..

Perhaps, in the highest 10 floors progresses the period to construct a floor might reach only 3 days!

¡¡Impresionante!! Lástima que la ciudad de Jeddah no se ve muy linda en fotos, espero que toda esta zona tenga más impulso..

Post of the year.

Eventually we will have the technology to again build something other than a pyramid. How ironic.

But I actually liked that observation platform. Other than that, I'm not such a big fan of the design. Essence-wise, it looks too much like the Burj Khalifa. It's still just a large pyramid, with a shard here and there. I know that there's some necessity because of engineering (just saying).

Actually in my opinion, the only reason to like this building is its hight.

piramid my ass, this is in no way a piramid. Just because the footprint is triangular that doenst mean its a piramid, there's a substantial difference.

Without the observation deck this building has no character! Other than being tall is the thing that differentiates it.

Sure but imagining is all you'd ever have been able to do. It wasn't going to be open to the public.

Sad because would be an income resource for sure (and an awesome experience too!)

It probably wouldn't do well in the winds with that many people.

As with other things there more I see it, the more I like it. And the JDK Tower is no exception, the renders make it seamlessly surreal. I cannot wait to see such a magnificent tower rise, and be completed. I have a question regarding the observation deck, don't you need some sort of breathing apparatus whilst you're on the deck, so you can breathe? Sound silly but I've heard that there is lack of oxygen the further up you go, hense aeroplanes are sealed tight. Would I be right?
