About MIBC (ММДЦ), for example? Russian crisis depends mostly on the fact that russia is making war now in Ukraine. Also, stop posting here, you russians are always like "mi nou spik Ingleesh bikoz ai heit Obama".

Woohoo! Another jump! I believe the pace is starting to pick up now!

Latest structure progress summary:

-Level 13 has emerged out of the central core jump-form = A section of Level 15 & 16* of the central core has been cast; rebar preparation for the second section of Levels 15 & 16 & 17.

-Level 6 has emerged out of the core wing jump-forms on all but on the South-East wing = 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 nearly complete.

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

-The crane cab and jib is yet to be installed on the new TC1 (Tower Crane 1) jumping core crane tower sections.

-A third jumping core crane is likely to be installed into the North-East elevation of the building.

-Current height = 66.18m / 217.14ft*

Yet again, thanks for the photo updates everybody!

*Level 16 is a mezzanine plant/mechanical floor of level 15.
**My best estimate, as I have a vague idea about how much of Levels 15 & 16 have actually been cast; my current height figure is based on the height of the core cap when conventional floors are cast within the jump-form.

you might not answer. https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9C...B8%D1%82%D0%B8 here is information about building process in MIBC. you can see only 1 cancelled and 4 modified projects. Russia Tower was cancelled in 2009, rumors about Spire in Federation Towers went in april-may 2013 (see http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...57285&page=590), and there is NO any "Ukrainian crisis" at that time. it's shame to discuss with you

you - B bl LLl I B A T H I K, who is Khuilo now?

Top 85 floors of Kingdom Tower will go unoccupied

The top 85 floors of Jeddah's under-construction marvel, Kingdom Tower, will go unoccupied as they are too narrow for apartments or offices, international reports suggest.

The shot from the water really puts the tower in perspective - it's a behemoth!
