In April 2015, a picture was presented on this forum (posting #11154 to be precise), which states that in September 2015, the core will reach level 47.

That is approx. 100 days from now, with approx. 30 levels to go.
No matter how hard they work, my estimate is they will not gonna make this (although 3 days/level IS possible...).
I have the impression they are behind schedule... ?

But off course I could be wrong,. They have done a lot of crane-changings in the past months. Very time consuming.

I think many agree with you. And many do not.
And I also like the design of e.g. Burj Khalifa more, and many other buildings.

But KT is spectacular in height, becoming the highest structure so far, so it deserves our attention on this forum.

yeah its pretty clear they desired height over quality in some ways. the sheer outer walls, if thats really how its going to go, is an example.

You wanted to say "obsolete"?
Because "retarded" is actually someone who has a difficulty to divide 500 by 3.3 to get an approx. result in meters. Also, KT is planned to be almost 600' taller than BK.

It's not possible to stop at this time. In Russia, their best projects have stopped already, because of crisis. But here - it will go on till its full completion.

About the design: of course it's all about height but to be true in a very elegant way i think. I really like the design, even more than Burj Khalifa.

I hate this tower because I am jealous it isn't in Dubai And I despise it even more because it will strip the tallest tower title from the UAE! Apart from that I got no problem with it.

I expect that just like in Dubai the floors will reach out a little past the core, just so you can get around. Also they will need to move material on the floors as construction moves along, so they will need room to maneuver and work.

Really? That is such an unnecessary and incendiary comment. It's really sad to me that this has so many likes. How dare someone use the system they were brought up with. What a horrible crime. I thought Skyscraper City sought to be inclusive to people of all nationalities. And then on top of that to use such an ignorant, negative word like "retarded" is just disgusting to me. IMO, there's no place for this kind of negativity here.

Far from that! But KSA's SWF is one of the largest in the world. Still it's the 3rd place though - SAMA (Central Bank).

Do You think that is normal that a non-Muslim person can't go to Mecca ?

what are you talking about? maybe we stopped Lakhta Center or Reneissance Moscow Towers? ahaha. you should know better the situation and not to repeat after Obama, number of closed projects in Russia is not higher, than in China or Dubai. you like talking about some sanctions, but 90% Russian crisis depends of oil prices. anyway, you can also find information about GDP (nominal and PPP) in IMF's website. stop produse rumors please
