Not trying to start discord, but I am curious... if women were to dress the way the women visible in this render are dressing, would there be a problem in Saudi Arabia?

the problem in saudi is the society not the government.

If you look at the existing malls, the dress code simply says "dress conservatively to avoid discord "

A dress code for shopping malls? Really? Because of some imaginary friend? Welcome back in the Middle Ages!

I appreciate whoever made the video (so I gave it a like). It has been and will continue to be work on their part. But it's a good example of why time long-term time-lapse videos for buildings should only include images taken at the same time each day... so the lighting is constant. It goes from dark to light to dark to light and that's difficult to watch. It's like a strobe light. It would also make the video much shorter.

Taken today from the site. They are facing massive issues due to the financial problems of the contractor and the work has really slowed down.

As long as this tower isn't really on hold with no progress and no workers on the site i don't care about those rumours.

i think it's a waste of time to respond to these people, same people even doubted the tower will ever be built and now the tower is close to hit 200M

A spokesman said, I would take it with a pinch of salt. About 40% of your staff is not routine.

Technically, a floor should be going up every five days. Don't take my word for it, but judging by the pictures yourself you can clearly see this is not happening.

The project will go ahead and will be finished but its way behind schedule and will definitely take longer than expected.

it took the US 10 years to build 1 WTC and i'm sure you know the US is capable of building another whole dubai.

this tower will most likely top out end of 2019 or in 2020

It was scheduled for 2019. If everything goes according to plan from now onwards, we are looking at 2020.

It looks awesome in the renderings, very elusive plans and project, I honestly just wish it was built some where else.
