The October pic is way zoomed in compared to the September one ... And both are exactly same height ... the only progress made was in the wings but main core is still where it was 1 month ago ... this is very misleading so let's keep diagrams and comparison of heights to professionals like The Shard Baby or alsaif2012

You mean they didn't make the base wider and move the windows up?

I mean the top of the core looks like it was marked to show difference in height with previous month.

Guys, don't only look at the core when you evaluate the progress. The wings require more progress and it seems like much work has been on the wings lately

I could be wrong but from the photos above it looks like its as tall as what a normal 20 stories office tower would be at the current stage.
