You all talking about the height... Where this info comes from? Are you the workers, engineers, owners? Or its just estimated?

OK take the official numbers from me:

its 38 floors
and the height is ~154 m (153.95 m to be precise )
and it's going to jump this week to floor 39 (~158 m).

on the other hand, the progress is going to speed up even more when the wings reaches floor 42 (170 m), and only then you can see a core jump every 5 days, and the necessary time to jump on wings will shrink by 25%, and that planned to be at the first week of July (After the Islamic Eid AL-Fetr Holidays). and that point, a floor plate (slab) would take only 5 days to be finished for 1 level.

Shouldn't the 3rd tower crane be ready yet this month?

If you mean TC next to the southern wing, then the answer is yes, it was originally planned to be ready by the end of March, yet I guess it's going to be late a week or two.

Hi all.

Here's my take ...

The height figures start at the future finished floor of level B1Mezz. at 0.00. The lower levels (B1 and B2) total near 7.6 meters in height so until they get into landscaping, the structure is technically this much higher but this is normally overlooked and I agree with that.

As of the 19th I count the core at the labeled level 37 (thanks to alsaif for the great shots) - the top of which is close enough to the height figure given for the future finished floor height of level 38 = near 154 meters which is also close enough for our purposes here.

As Rody kindly pointed out we will jump a level this week so the top of the structure will be at the floor of level 39 at near 158 meters.

Level 42 is at near 170 and both 39 and 40 look to be close to the same height of near 6 meters. Level 41 is skipped in the level naming scheme, going by the blurry section drawing I posted a few pages ago.

Levels 15 and 16 were poured in 3 form jumps as we can see by looking at the concrete (level 17 was skipped). I presume levels 39 and 40 will be done in 3 jumps as well.


Ray.
