Great job actually when i heard that they will finish in 2018 i said that's impossible burj khalifa is way shorter and it took over 6 years to bulid it and this one is way taller, but i just did a small comparing right now between booth of them and it looks to me that after a year and 8 months from the beginning of the constructs it looks like KT is raising higher a little bit
