Well, you can already see a lot of the light aluminum / steel supports and the formwork for the floors in a couple places. Either they have already poured those floors but will leave the forms in for weeks, or they've just not poured them yet. Even when BK was going up, there were the stabilizing floor support poles under the newest 4-5 floors that would be there for awhile at a time, just to probably ensure that the floor was fully cured and even.

They already startet with the floors.

Recently I have started to subsume a great irrational hatred towards Google for spreading this rumour in the first place - it may have been 306m when plans were first published in 2003, but many subtle changes have happened since then and these make all the difference when sources are seen to be misquoted from the truth because I can't take it!

Let's hope this doesn't come to the Kingdom Tower, as I have had people blindly argue with me that the height is 818m when it is not!

Back to the Kingdom Tower, there hasn't been any crane movement today at all, so I presume that the wind was too high for any operations to take place.
maybe learn how the internet works before you get mad at a page ranking algorithm.

Finally, a first post by a new member that wasn't spam, and didn't deserve to be repeatedly struck with a 2x4 wrapped in barb wire

Please don't take this the wrong way but the only reason I did that was because I was banned each time since I repeatedly posted it on many threads and only because I want to implement all the information I receive from this forum on media that younger viewers might be more involved in, only and only to spread the enthusiasm we have towards development of infrastructure and economy's. But this is my 3rd account and I have only posted this video once since I might be banned. So I hope you appreciate what I do and not criticise it.

Thank You!!

WAIT A MINUTE
As I remember you can't post any videos/Links without having at least 10 posts. Has that law been removed?

Back to the Kingdom Tower...the cranes have started to move again and construction on the core structure has resumed.

There is also a lot of mobile crane movement around the site, so they must be preparing for the foundation works of the Kingdom City, or at least shuttling materials around, as construction on the Kingdom City will not commence until the tower reaches Level 40.
