It is kinda incredible when you look at that drawing and the numbers. When they have reached 450m it already tall. But then you Think nope, there are still 550m left buddy, this is not even half the building.

May be somebody in Jeddah have a flying dron with HD-camera to film this tower from the height? Or this is also prohibited by authorities?

So it's not 122m, it's 126m because a new jump happened after this, am I right?

brother when they reach 450metre only 250metre is left because the end floor is in 670 metre so they plans to build at least 200metre tower with no floor only a structure of concrit cement

Man, your right about that. Im getting mad now, why is it so hard to commit themselfs fully when you want to build the tallest building in the World? Its about what height is the tallest floor that you can actually use. So its actually not as tall as it seems. They cheat by adding a big empty Concrete spire.

With the formwork in this position, they are casting the walls beteen 30 and 31.
And after that, floor 31 itself.

Growing and growing...!
