The next 3 jumps are 2 mechanical levels - 39 and 40. This could be the reason.

Mech. floors are indeed a reason for a slow down. I remember when i watched the construction of Burj Khalifa. The mechanical floors always took a quite time.

Wow they are actually building this?!
I thought it was going to end up cancelled like some of the other 1000m towers, this is great news, I can't believe how tall it already is, the core is massive!
