It is not really a building but a really big monument in the middle of the city that will bring Saudi Arabia from a nation that completely relied on oil to a FDI magnet

Well everybody feels different. I've been always dreaming about beating 1 kilometer hights by skyscrapers, but I wasn't sure I will see it my eyes during my lifetime

Now I hope The Kingdom Tower won't be alone and other powerful countries will be trying to build such a towers over 1 km - I count on China first

The most accurate estimation I can come up with is that the core is currently 61.58 metres tall, I am in no way linked to the project, however I have been studying this tower in detail quite a lot recently!

I'll put this in my signature from now on, so people will know where to find this information.

I don't have any contact with those building the Kingdom tower project, so I wouldn't make any guesses.

However I presume that the progress on the core has slowed down somewhat, because there are reconfigurations to the concrete core structure at level 6 (on the tapering wing walls) and the mechanical/plant floors at levels 15, (16) and 17 (which are slightly taller than most floors - level 16 may be a mezzanine floor within level 15, though I'm not quite sure on that one due to the lack of available plans).
Hence I guess it would take longer to construct these floors and so that is why the core construction rate has slowed down recently.
