It looks like it could be 2 levels. As with the other floors there is a dark line between them. I believe that could be the floor slabs. The same dark line is in the middle of the 3rd floor.

Yeah, honestly, I could care less about which floor it's at. It's rising, and that's all we should care about at this point.

This is skyscrapercity. Of course there are a lot of people that care about what floor were on and even more important in my eyes is the height. That is what it is all about. We are all here to see this rise to a new milestone. The 1st building over 3000'

"The dark line" is just a border between concrete pouring stages.

And there are no slabs inside the core.

If you look to the KT diagram (a few pages back...) you can see that the average floor level is 4000, or close to 4000 mm.

Level 167 is at 670.000 m, and level 1 is at 5.900 m.
670.000 m - 5.900 m = 664.100 m, for a total span of 166 levels.
664.100 m / 166 = 4000 mm per level (+ a little bit behind the comma...).


This makes it logical to have the formwork also jump in steps of 4000 mm.


But at several levels, there are exeptions to the floor height. In these area's, there are higher floors, with some smaller mezzanine levels between.
This is the case between levels 1- 7, levels 14-20, levels 38-42, etc.

This is why there is a difference in for formwork levels and actual floor levels that you see on the photo's.
It will normalize at level 8, and become mixed-up again from level 14-20, etc.

I meant the point where the floor slab would tie into the core.The exterior of the core.

Here's a super-old pic of the tower under construction, but there's a lot of work going on there.

that's more than just wishful thinking. just look on google earth thru all updates we had from shanghai tower, only several updates for all these years of process and shanghai is a much bigger city. Yet weather might help for better updates in jeddah, we might see. But don't think we get an update every two or three months, that's not how google maps works sadly

There are potential candidates, but nothing that I would say is very likely to be built. Most noteworthy is Azerbaijan tower. I think for a serious new candidate we have better chances for height increased of a proposal or a total new one.

No, but a 10,000m tall building has been proposed, but I doubt it would be built in this century.

There's this. Still in the proposed stage, but far more likely than a 10,000m building. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1477349

Yes the Azerbaijan Tower, but they're still laying out the islands it's supposed to be build on though so it won't be any soon.
