So the building is still rising at about 3 floors per month...

When is it estimated to pass 1000 feet (~300m)?

We know that standard level heigh of Jeddah Tower is 4.00 m, and now we have level 39, and 149 m.

Let's say, now we have Level 40 and 150 m height, exactly half from the 300m, so we have more 150m to go.

According to the march diagram we have 3 floors or 12m per month, 150/12 = to rich 300m height we need more 12.5 month, or lets say Jeddah Tower will become a supertall exactly in 1 year, in April 2017.

^Your calculations are inappropriate as construction cannot go that slow. This year We hope to complete more than 70 floors approx

As it goes taller, it goes slimmer so it can get to be 300m in march

The picture of the KT and the Burj Dubai as it was about the same height made me think - wasn't the construction on the Burj 24/7? 24 hours a day and 7 days a week?

Here on KT, the workers seem to arrive in the morning and don't work into the night, and then there are Fridays where no work is done, and sandstorm days, where also no work is done.

Hey Dave, I agree that construction seems to be slower on KT, but the Burj also had to deal with sandstorm days as well. Additionally, the Burj also suffered delays when they decided mid construction to go from a height of 705m to 819m.

As it gets taller the amount of time it takes to lift and pour concrete must slow down. How much does that affect the rate of growth?

Not that much, at around 500 Meters pumping concrete will take around half a hour. so not that much of a affect.

Great to see someone pushing the boundaries of engineering. Just shows what humanity can do if we put our mind to something.

Would look better with some density. It would be more eye catching if the surrounding buildings were taller.

^ I might have over estimated but I think atleast two towers around it could reach 300m and as you know plans can change but Don't expect too much. They won't be much big because otherwise KT won't Stand out.
