And if they keep this pace, then we will see level 70th and maybe cladding by the end of the year!

I believe rody calculated that with considering the floors getting smaller. but i said if they keep the pace of 4 floors a month.
Also, now that i calculate, 76th floor by the end of the year with this pace. not 70.

So, we can say that it will be higher than 300 m by the end of this year for sure, can't we?

Hey!
I was talking about the actual modified project time plan
On the other hand, the floor size isn't the main factor to affect the speed of construction, as you have some logistical obstacles as you go higher.

logistical obstacles wouldn't affect the progress that much since, the floor size will be much smaller

In addition, the floor size is clearly one of the main factors to affect the speed of construction. Look at the Burj Khalifa how it got much faster

I'm pretty certain that the Tower in Pyongyang North Korea has a lot of interior work that can't get done because they ran out of money!

At some point, I believe somewhere around 50 floors the wings will have to catch up, so I don't see any more than 60 floors by the end of the year. And from looking at the design plans, the floors don't get that much smaller, it is a very gradual progression going up.

Nobody said it will get that much smaller this year, we are talking in general
