They want to first attract local people to visit and spend money on local tourism since millions of Saudis spend their money visiting UAE, Turkey, Europe, USA or other countries around the world. Once the tourism infrastructure is ready, local people are happy with the standard of services they find in touristic areas,,, then the government will consider opening up the doors for international visitors and tourists.

I agree we are talking in the same page but what i wanted to mentioned that its not impossible to visit the country and you know that in fact 4 days a go a slovaki friend of my friend he came here to visit his friend and see hows life here and of course the majority of the people they get here in jeddah they got surprised and the majority mentioned that they didn't expect this they thought it will be so Stritc or the people wont be nice to them but all in all you won't understand a place till you visit it

I couple of questions I have:

1.- At the current height we have, shouldn't we have seen already a different height in one of the floors? Wasn't it this switch of height the reason for the delay on getting taller?

2.- The Shard Baby: Awesome diagrams! I have just a question: It says they have been done by Paint. Won't it be difficult to update them? Why didn't you use a vector graphics tool where you have many more possibilities?

Isn't it just hidden from view because it's on the other side?

1 - Yes, it was most possibly a result of the constant floor height changes between levels 14 and 17 that they were delays on the main core, level 14 has only just emerged from the central core section jump-from rig and they are currently/have already cast level 16 within the jump-form.

2 - Updating my diagrams is far simpler than you may think, I have a document which basically contains a toolbox of parts so I can just select, copy and paste to build up the many layers from which the diagram is made up of.
For example here is one I did for The Shard in preparation towards creating my diagram time-lapse:

The Shard diagram time-lapse - diagram toolbox
by The Shard Baby 2006-2015, on Flickr

As for using other more advanced programmes other than paint to draw up my diagrams, I have always used paint for as long as I can remember, so it's just second nature now and I am actually still learning new faster and efficient ways of producing ever more complicated diagrams (i.e. my 30 Saint Mary's Axe diagram, where every detail around the composition is different and parts are not replicated). I have had some good experience with GoogleSketchup8 and AutoCAD 2013, though my computer has trouble running it, so I don't use it as much.

P.S. Many thanks for the likes everybody! 42 for just one post - I can hardly believe it, thank you!!!
Also my ultimate goal with this project is to produce a frame-by-frame animation of the construction process of this building once the building is complete - 10th anniversary on SkyscraperCity celebrations?

Question, what's the average time span now for a floor to be built?

Awesome work, The Shard Baby! I was thinking you were doing something quite basic, but this seems really professional. I'm actually even impressed with what you can do by only using Paint

So, coming back to the Diagram, it seems the floor n° 15 is the one with the height change. I'm sure we will solve this doubt very soon!

The original question was about the 'street', which is a public place


.... and no, you can't have sex in public and get away with it in most of Europe and almost the entire US
