It seems to me that construction has slowed to a crawl. Very reminiscent of what happened to the ill-fated Waterview Tower in my neck of the woods in 2007/2008. That one sat as an abandoned 20-story concrete hulk for 5 years before it was eventually redesigned and completed at half the original height.

You do have to wonder if $40/bbl oil is playing negatively into the financial viability of this mega-project, which includes not just the tower, but also tens of billions of dollars of construction around it. My understanding is that the Kingdom Tower is essentially the "loss-leader" for the city that is to be developed along with it. That would seem to make it very susceptible to being scaled back somewhat.

What are you talking about? The tower is progressing well, it's far away from being on hold....

That's even less usable space than I thought

Just imagine they increase the spire and it ends up losing its title as a building, because less than 50% of the height is usable.
