Kingdom Tower current height = 61.58m / 202.03ft

It's in my signature . No change since the 18th of May.

Also there are some crane sections on site since the 5th of May, after they took down TC1, so they might be constructing a jumping second core crane some time soon using these sections.

I have my doubts that it grows 750m in just 2 and a half years. My guess is on mid 2018.

Maybe they now have second thoughts.

Probably after KT is finished they will restart the project of Nekheel with a minimum height of 1200m to regain the title, I mean hopefully ..

That's a very reasonable assumption! I'm also quite sure about that, knowing about the competitive spirit of Dubai.

Indeed, the height of KT will surely not be the end.

But investment costs for higher and higher buildings are tremendous. This might become the limiting factor (or already is...).
From a technical point of view (as an engineer), I see no objections against a building of - for example - 2000 m.

I was right! They are building the second core crane with those spare crane sections which were left over from when they took down TC1!

It is also sitting on that beam which I guessed would be a crane base for a second jumping core crane a few pages back!

However what still remains a mystery is whether this crane will be called TC1 again or TC7 (like the first cantilevered crane on The Shard)...

I was trying to remember where I have seen this shape before. Then it dawned on me...the core looks similar to the CN Tower in Toronto!

Just the third crane missing then, but i guess it'll follow very soon. The other cranes at the wings will be removed in the future.
