Is it just me or are they going super slow? I know the mechanical floor went up but doesn't that not have any effect on the ones above?

Yes it's rising slow. So what???
In the last months there are posts "it's so slow..." nearly on every page in this thread. To say this a thousand times doesn't make it faster
So relax, with no doubt they will finish it in the next years, a few months later isn't a big deal.

that is a good thing that dubai is planning to build an even higher tower because soon enough we will hear again that jeddah is planning to build a MILE-HIGH skyscraper, and let's wait until we have more info about the Iconic tower so far we know nothing other than it will be taller than BK

I agree with this. To be honest, I don't even like Jeddah tower. It looks meh to me, but I'm supporting it anyway because Jeddah desperately needs skyscrapers.

well that's one of the motivations and probably the most important one since their goal was to have the world's tallest tower

In my opinion, Dubai is making a tower in the right way. its not wasting that much money on hotels and apartments which most likely 90% of them would of been left empty. For example, Burj khalifa has been awarded most useless building in the world.
They are also wasting money on KT. Making this much hotel rooms and apartments that might be left empty.

Even though all these tall building fail, they help in bringing development in the area around it. Look around in Dubai.
