Work has started to progress on the basement floors...

Latest structure progress summary:

-Level 12 has emerged out of the central core jump-form = Level 14 of the central core has been cast; rebar preparation for Levels 15 & 16

-Level 5 has emerged out of the core wing jump-forms on all 3 wings = Level 7 of the core wings have been cast; rebar preparation for casting the Level 8 core wings.

-The Basement 1 floor slabs have been cast, formwork preparation for the walls of Basement 2 is underway.

-Formwork preparations for the casting of the Basement 0* floor slab are still underway.

-TC1, the second core crane and the first jumping crane on the project, has been erected into the side of the core structure at Level 7.

-Another jumping core crane will subsequently be installed into the North-East elevation of the building.

-Current height remains at 61.58m / 202.03ft.

Yet again, thanks for the photographic updates everybody!

*I don't really understand how they are naming the floors here, so this is how my system works:
Level 1
Basement 0
Basement 1
Basement 2


Technically in the plans the lowest floor is basement 2, however there are 3 basement floors...any help please?

At this point, it looks like the Ryugyong hotel under construction. With quality concrete.

I don't think it wont look as amazing as BK that it has buildings all around and has been developing for the past 15 years and it is the last piece and more brilliant of the whole city-area development at this time.

But anyway, we are here to see it done, no matter if it's necessary or not.
Actually it has a much more profound purpose, they need to build huge glamorous buildings and cities for tourism, it's the only card they have, they have nothing else to pull in tourists and investments.
The middle eastern countries know that the oil game is up and will be a thing of the past in a few decades, so they rapidly need a new industry, that's why all these oasis cities are sprawling up in that region. And they got all that oil money so they invested it in this new glamorous city building industry, which was a smart move tho to be fair.

Levels 15 & 16 are plant floors.

I have not visited this post for a while... It seems like there has not been so many progress since two or three months ago?...

What's happening? Saudi Arabia finally realizes how hard it is to build an hypertall?

It's yet not the fastest rising supertall (or hypertall) but i'm sure they will keep the schedule. And this means more speed in the future. Perhaps they have some kind of delays but this doesn't mean they are surprised how difficult this construction will be.

You are out of your mind! What do you mean "no progress"? Makes no sense for a guy who did not check the thread for over three months. Could you please get a life and be serious like we are? And yes we read that stupid line you wanted to share about Saudi and you better get some education Mr. Ignorance is not helping.

There has been a jump on two of the inner wing sections!

-Level 6 has emerged out of the core wing jump-form on the South-West and North wings (the other is staggered behind by one floor) = Level 8 of these wings is being cast.
-Level 7 of all the core wings have been cast; rebar preparation for casting Level 9 has commenced on the South-East and North wing.

-The Basement 1 floor slabs have been cast, formwork preparation for the walls of Basement 2 is underway.

-Formwork preparations for the casting of the Basement 0* floor slab are still underway.

-TC1, the second core crane tower section and the first jumping crane on the project, has been erected into the side of the core structure at Level 7.

-Another jumping core crane will subsequently be installed into the North-East elevation of the building.

-Current height remains at 61.58m / 202.03ft.

Yet again, thanks for the photo updates everybody!

Not only the pure one didn't open, but I couldn't see ANY pictures from this page!

I guess it's a problem with my location, or who knows...

No need to be aggressive xMuha, what I'm just saying is that at first sight the height has not changed at all since the last time I came here. If you can prove that it is wrong, then show me some relevant pictures
