The pace should be 1 floor every 3 days. Lets see if they can get the momentum going.

That might be expecting too much - ten floors a month.

That's not important, what's important is that they speed up the construction which I think would happen when the weather get a bit cooler

think it caused by weather?

and one more thing that surprised me - i was watching some archive pics and found this:



did they pour the concrete right on the ground?

I'm currently attempting to recreate this in sketchup, so you may see what the core by itself would look like, although some may already have an idea of what it might look like. Maybe its just to show my modelling skills

Wow, that's amazing - fantastic work! Especially as I know for a fact that there are hardly any details out there for you to get you started with something as distinctively demanding as the Kingdom Tower, everything is all under high level top secrecy and it really does look like you've done a really great job!

Good luck with the rest of the tower!

1800th post!

It looks like a pointy version of the Pyongyang Hotel.

Remember this video from about two years ago?

-->https://youtu.be/xh0DZXdwIlc<--

Might give a more accurate impression on how the tower will look once it's completed.
