The same thing is repeated If Abu Dhabi were maintained at Dubai in 2009 . Can Saudi Arabia to maintain the third blow it up with the presence of the largest financial reserves in the world With the sharp drop of oil in 2009 Saudi Arabia has been able to collect a huge financial reserve benefit from now.

I think youre a bit wrong my friend The wings construction requires much more time and procedures then the core does, so they halted all works on c.core to minimize height difference between it and the wings. Im sure the core will continue its rise later when all wings will be higher.

2 more floors but the core formwork didn't rise yet. I guess they'll lift it today.

No, 7 months ago it was already half of the current height. Take that into your consideration! It took around 3 weeks to raise each new level up. Damn slow!

In case you didn't know, every wing is 100 meters from the other .. please don't say that a complete floor every week is what's expected with this size because obviously this is NONSENSE





But, in the future the speed is going to continuously increase basically, because the floors will continuously get smaller ..

Guys you are making a big deal out of the slowing down of Construction! It is normal for things to slow down when the economy is not that great. Anyways it won't stay down forever ... economy will get better eventually and the tower will go faster.

Happy Muslim New Year to all who celebrate it.

Thanks for the clear view renders alsaif2012.

Other than that it'll miss its best office/ apartment views, no complaints. Looks beautiful and tall !

I suppose they would have to delay the central core construction if the wings are behind for the reason that where the conctrete between the central core and the wings meets the bond has got to be very strong indeed. That bonding just wouldn't happen so well if the concrete in the central core has been allowed to cure for a period longer than a certain amount of days.

They're building what's going to be the world's tallest building here! They've definitely got to get it right!
