There's already a Kingdom tower in Riyadh, why the same name?

But people refer it otherwise.. So they're different names.

Anyway, I think it's because the company owning the two projects is called Kingdom Holding.

Most likely very soon. I presume that they might install an external hoist here, where there is a gap within the right-hand side of the jumpform rig on the central section of the core.

WEll. We will see.

I think topping out in 2018 is still possible, if there are not too many setbacks.

That's for sure!

At the moment, one can already be seen.
But there may be one or 2 more around the central core in near future.

So it's around 14 or 15 floors now and 60 meters high (45-50 if you don't count underground floors) it seems.

6 months ago it was at 2 floors, so only 2 floors per month. 237 floors to go... of course it will speed up when it goes higher and thus thinner, but still the average would need to go to one floor each 5 days to finish in 2018, up from the current 14 days.

Is that feasible?
