Last construction pictures look like Lego compound made of grey and yellow bricks. I used to build those

40-50m and 13-15 floors, just my guess. Don't know it for sure.

That will be about correct.

Wait for the next update by Alsaif2012 (mostly once a week).
I think these are most accurate at the moment.


Although the tower will keep on rising for the coming 2 years, there is not much exciting difference every week for the coming period.
Each time one floor is added, but overall it looks like nothing happened.

I can not wait until the floor slabs, and later on the cladding will start.

What are you talking about?

I check this thread almost every day, and when new pics or diagrams are uploaded, every floor added on the structure, every single crane, concrete pump, machinery in the plot, even the workers pictures... my enthusiasm goes sky tall!!

I agree! But not just my enthusiasm going up, I'm quite aware of the building putting on height.

3 stories each day.
If Chinese rush Kindom Tower will never be the highest in the world: the Chinese would build a taller one in a couple of years.

Please, not this BSB, Sky City, crap again
There is a thread dedicated to it that has been dead for a long time, and frankly, most of us have lost hope for such a project from BSB. This is actually being built and Sky City is not. They pushed some dirt around and that's about it. They keep building these smaller towers, but nothing even close to being the next WTB.
