It's going up aggressively now, but it was pretty slow for awhile.

Oh no. If it were, it would be about a mile tall. I'm afraid this tower is only 200 meters taller.

That depends on how you look at it.

This highest building in my country (Netherlands) is not even 200 m tall.
A building of 800 m or 1000 m is just enormous!

And a mile-high tower: it's just a matter of time...

Yeah that's true. I mean the Dubai Iconic tower (if it is ever built) will be like 4000 feet or something. And honestly I'm kinda ticked off about it. I feel bad for kingdom tower though. I mean Emaar alread owwns the tallest building in the world and if Iconic tower goes up, it will literarily be like a mile from the burj khalifa.

^ Iconic Tower will be built in Dubai and construction is expected top start in the following weeks, however it should be around 4200', with around 10 usable floors near the top of the structure. Santiago Calatrava is designing the tower.

I hate to say, but neither one ain't gonna get completed! Financing will disappear. These will be like that north-korean project, which i think is still work in progress after many decades.

I think that tower in Pyongyang North Korea is actually complete. Also why would this tower be called off. Everyone thought the Burj khalifa was going to be cancelled (Its been the tallest building in the world for 8 years now).

I believe here is a good place to show where all these big cranes are produced. The cranes that are allowing to built all these insane monumental skyscrapers.

The factories of Liebherr are spread in very peaceful area of Germany called Baden-Württemberg.

Here the link:

And photo of one of the factories:

And lots of people thought the Jeddah tower will never be build. Now it's already 37 floors above ground.
Of course not all big projects get build but some are

I was one of those sceptics. Now here we have it progressing beyond imagination. I will never doubt the ability of that region contractors to build gigantic projects again.
