Could be done a 100 years ago, if the majority of people would be more educated and less terrified throughout the Middle Ages.

It's a progress of engineering, humanity on the other hand, "is moving backwards".

It's 3 p.m. local time on a Saturday - the webcam shows the site to be deserted and the cranes are idle - I wonder why?

Although that super-gif was awesome, its quite disappointing to see how slow the progress is, the core is only growing about 2 floors a month. At this rate completion won't be until
2022.

Burj Khalifa at the same level and height (level 39 => 149m) [April 2006]



(after one year and seven months which is the same period as it is with Jeddah Tower, this means the construction speed is almost the same)


Burj Khalifa at the end of that year (level 98 => 355m) [December 2006]




Burj Khalifa after exactly one year (level 123 => 436m) [April 2007]

It is very slow, compared to Diwang Building's average pace of 1 floor every 2.25 days. And that giant has floor areas 3450 - 4900 mē.

It's not moving anywhere. The majority of humans is still deeply superstitious and terrified by the ancient cults. They still perform bizarre rituals because of their fear and ignorance.

And i would like to add that we had 123 floors in 31 months, which means 4 floors in month, or 1 floor per week, which is the world standard in the construction of skyscrapers.
