EDIT OF ORIGINAL POST: The floor height of level 20 is 81.95 metres not 82.84, my diagram scale was bound to go wrong at some point - sorry!

This height (the level 20 floor height) is official BTW:

-Kingdom Tower current height = 81.95m / 268.91ft

Currently, level 19 has been completed within the jump-form rig, capping with the level 20 floor height.

Don't think so, because I remember a discussion about whether the Greenland Center would overtake the KT or not, so I think s/he's making that point by making that post

Well - it mostly has bounced back. This tower is a long term project.

I'm just happy to see the pace pick up on both projects. It doesn't matter to me which one finishes first, they're both great towers. Besides, safety for the workers is more important than who wins the race.

I had commented the exact same intrigue that we have more void in this tower than we thought. I'm surprised they couldn't do *something* with the 20 or so floors of empty space from the 130s.

But at the same time that could be a slightly outdated rendering / planning map. Guess it'll be interesting to see what happens physically once constructions reaches that high. I'd have to think the void will necessitate floors for lateral stability throughout - just that no (or few) elevator openings will be in the walls for that first void.

Still crazy that even if that borders on only about 50% of the tower "in use" the lower 50% is still taller than 1WTC. Wow.

Maybe you meant another Greenland project? Thought Greenland Center is ~630 meters? But true, structurally they may share many things but they are different projects.

Though recently the main core construction (which is the main contributing factor towards the increasing current height of the building) on the Kingdom Tower has sped up.

In July the main core jump-form only jumped up a floor height once and during this past month (August) this progress has increased threefold.

Why delete the total height number?

I wonder how much longer Tower Cranes 4 and 6 will be there? The tops of the wings they are assembled next to seem to be getting too high to be reached by them.

From what we know TC4 & TC6 will be continued long into the project, although I guess that it may possibly be used to construct the landscaping around the tower once they reach a certain height...

This diagram indicates how TC3 was staggered behind from the construction of the main tower, just as TC4 and TC6 may do so on this project to construct the landscaping around the tower as I mentioned before.
TC3 can be seen behind and to left of The Shard, halfway up the tower :

The Shard may be a bit of topic for this forum (even though it had been built by the same contractors), I hope this might interest some of you.
I also haven't been wrong with my (mystic) precognition of possible construction methodology techniques on this project so far!
