So you are convinced about your stance? I can prove the reality with pictures and I see a change in the last three months.

At this pace it would only be 100 meters high at the end of the year. Is pace expected to pick up? Are there known reasons for the current pace? Of course it will get thinner once it goes further up, but pace would have to accelerate beyond that.

The floors they are building right now are the plant/mechanical floors, they are taller than most conventional floors in the tower, so a lot of time has been taken recently to reconfigure the jump-from rig formwork casts to compensate for this and as a result construction has slowed right down.

Also they may need to erect all the jumping-core cranes before they progress the height of the core any further, as that red crane is not going to last very long considering how close the cab is to the roof of the core at the moment.

Progress should accelerate once the plant/mechanical floors have been cast and the jump-forming of the conventional floors precedes.

In the meantime it seems a lot of people on this thread are a little tired of waiting...

That makes sense. I agree, not only in this thread people should be more relaxed with the time.

I can't imagine a tower more than 500' taller than the Burj Khalifa. This tower is insane. I just wish they were not building it in Jeddah.

Don't use "retarded" when correcting a minor mistake. It's kinda inconsiderate.
