Seems we're now reaching a speed of one floor per week finally .
Hopefully they can increase to 2 per week next year.

Would be great! But two floors per week including all three wings seems to be impossible.

Not impossible. They reached a speed of 3 floors a week at Burj Khalifa which is similar to KT.

To me it seems there is much more "concrete per floor" in KT than in BK.
Thus also more rebar, additional steelworks, and formworks.

Then it would be logical that KT rises slower then BK.

Also, there is not much progress yet on the wing-floors.
Formworks are even not installed yet.

Exactly. The fastest speed that we have seen till now is 2-3 floors per month - i mean average and all the wings combined. They can go 2 flors per week on the core only, but it isnt a tower, it is only the core.

I don't if this has been posted before but there is a camera set-up in front of the Kingdom Tower which I believe updates every 15 minutes.

This is the most recent update at 2am:



You can modify the date and time accordingly in the URL to find archived images.

As a result, I can go back and check the photo taken at noon on 16th December:
