As I've just checked, the last floor increase in the core has been on 7th. of this month, which means 14 days ago. If they want to reach the speed of 4 days/floor, they should be at least around 4 times faster than now.

Of course it is clear it will speed up, this is just a comment I had in mind.

Why Burj Khalifa looks thinner than the Kingdom Tower ?

Because the curved sections at the edges of Burj Khalifa were built later. Kingdom Tower already has its maximum width now.


Here is a later construction status of Burj Khalifa and you can see how the curved sections at the edges of the tower are attached to the core-part of BK:

Here's a friend who had a very good idea to put the recent hight with and without basement floors in his signature.

Seeing the core of the KT rise brings back good memories of when the BK was beeing built. Can't wait to see Kingdom city being built behind KT. Good times are ahead for KT.
