I had hoped it would have picked up speed by now. It should be at least 200m by now.

Actually, If you compare its Current speed to BK, This thing is doing really slow. BK and KT have almost the same size in base, and BK was doing 1 floor every week, but KT is doing one floor every 10 days (Right now it has been 16 days since the last core jump! If they keep this speed then that means 2 floors a month!)

It kind of looks like the base of the Burj Khalifa is (much) wider, is that true?

I did this comparison several pages ago. see post #14575

They both spent the same period of time to reach this height ( 1 year and 7 months ~150m)

+ Jeddah Tower's base looks like BK's but JT's base is much larger

I'm not sure why this jump is a bit late but I guess it's because the wings are late in the schedule

Hi all.

As with the BK, form jumps are slower on the MEP levels ...
