Yeah, slow. But when you build a Tower that is 1000m in a flat dessert, the lower levels MUST be stable and need more care. It should start to rise soon.

Still. They Surely had to rise up 1 floor per week. 1 year is almost 52 Weeks so... Yeah. Almost Two times the current floors the tower has.

Honestly right now, I have no problems with the speed. It is slow, but for a good reason. What is being built right now eventually has to support whatever is above it. So, it makes all the sense in the world to spend more time on the lower portion and perfect it ...and that is exactly what they're doing. Once we're passed the crucial floors, the lower ones, then you will start to see floor jumps go faster and faster

Well they are behind schedule and slower than they intended to be, so there is that. But I agree that it could be a lot worse and a tower of this scale I am just happy for it rising at all.

Besides, in regards to the construction pace, what's the rush? As long as the pace is steady as it is, I don't mind it being a bit slow.
This building will be complete before you know it. Enjoy watching it rise.
