The tower raised 3 floors in this month ..
its very slow .. they must rise 1 floor every week ..
IF THEY Raised every month just 3 floors its mean the tower will be 66 floor in the end of the year .. :\

3 floors where? In single section? Take it average - the core + all section of all wings... And its even LESS than 3 floor per month. You can calculate another way: 30 floors in 1 year, 365/30 = 1 floor per 10 days approximately, and it is only the core, the wings still lower and in average it took more than 10 days per floor last year. Now its bit faster, but still slowly

Guys, take the floors area and the wings length at this stage into account

the higher they reach the smaller the floor area will be

you can't measure speed equally, you are not talking logically here

There is logic, AAMOF: the higher they reach, the bigger are the challenges and complexity, and the longer times takes the lifting - all the materials, consumables, tools, workers etc. Consider also the need for the workers to go down as well. Every day, it takes more and more time, to raise everything up, and to bring the workers down at the end of their shift.

In december they build 4 floors, just over new year it slowed down a bit. But they're back at normal speed already. So i'm sure we'll see 4 floors this month.

Wrong, the the higher they reach, the smaller are the challenges and complexity but you are right about the longer time to lift materials. But, again it doesn't make that much of a difference since the area will get smaller rapidly

And the workers use electric elevators not ladders and lifting materials doesn't make that much difference with these cranes

But, my point is the higher they get, the faster the tower will rise. The speed can't slow down by time. Just wait and see

Pace is glacial. I'm getting that "Waterview" feeling again. Folks in Chicago will know what I'm talking about.

Jeddah Tower Top Left
Landing on 16R/34L, an aircraft would be at a 700m height 5km away, perpendicular to the axis of the Jeddah Tower meeting the (3 degree) flight path

Hi Sluggo.

As of today I count the height at the floor of level 33 = 133.95 meters as measured from the future finished floor of level B1Mezz. to the future finished floor of level 33.
