This is my opinion, and u don't have to agree with me, but this tower shouldnt be built, it has 1 kilometer and just 170 floors?? It's ridiculous!! Is just a rich man's whim, and is being built in the middle of nowhere, There isnt a city just a big desert! I dont get it, and the design is so poor.. Like I said before, u dont have to agree with me, is my personal opinion.

Obvious troll is obvious. Or did you never hear about Kingdom City, that will be build all around this tower? Or Jeddah respectively, which is just a few hundred meters from the construction area?

Nice updates, hoping they get the surrounding areas developed too. From that shot, it looks like a tall building in the middle of nowhere.

Yes and no. The central structure is the core and building, the wings you see are the core with the perimeter trailing decks yet to be formed. Once the jump forms are higher, the decks will start

To enlighten you a bet assuming you're unknowledgeable, the tower may seems it's in the middle of nowhere and that's because the land where the tower being built is so huge but the the land itself is surrounded by newly neighborhoods "Suburbs".
If you check Google Earth you will notice that at the completion day of the tower the land will be already invaded by the city just like Burj Kalifa.

40? It's barely pushing 20. Look at the cabin of the crane. It's approximately as tall as the man sittning in it.

On a competitive forum, on Dec 4th., the height was approx. 7 m (sub-terrain floors) + 29 m (above terrein).
So total approx. 36 m.

But as it is rising quickly, this 36 m. is "old news".

I think that the postings by forum members like "alsaif2012" are reliable!
