The Eid is three days not just one. But, the main day is the first day which might be Friday or Saturday. So, the full construction capacity might return on Tuesday as maximum ..

Could you photoshop the KT into the skyline of Frankfurt?
It's the only city in germany with a worth mentioning amount of skyscrapers. Would be really nice to see this

Thanks for the info! I checked the live camera feed this morning, Jedda time, and the site seemed buzzing with activity - all the cranes were in operation and I could see many workers.

In the US until some laws are changed, it will never happen. Builders are by law limited to 2000, above that the FAA controls the space. Not sure what it would take to get the OK, to build to these heights.
And then there are the NIMBYs and politicians, it would take years to just to get an OK, and cost millions in court fights, so why bother.
