It won't get any shorter than its original plan. It is not even possible with this design and the height that is already reached. Don't think of it like there is a big problem there, it is just a delay and that's it

A project of this would always see a complete spectrum of an economic cycle, some see more than one. By the time they finish it, the economy would possibly take an upturn and they wouldnt have an issue selling any of it.

Burj Khalifa had the same issue, they were in such a doldrums that they had to seek assistance from the AD government to finish it and hence the change of name but today is considered as a success.

Burj Khalifa was also funded by a private developper (Emaar properties) who didn't receive money from Abu Dhabi government.

Work also never slowed down like that.

saudi arabia already very experienced build tall buildings, including buildings to Abraj Al Bait height above 600 meters. typical of a middle eastern country despite a long process but it certainly finished because they already have a plan and funding that had been prepared for the construction of buildings in the future.

I'm also following the GCC National Railroad project in each of the countries which will be amazing once finished. I'm hoping to see some high speed rail connections in the future.

other than this everything is fine

The tower shud advance rapidly az it gits higher due the fact its floor area is smaller on the way up , its spear dicing also makes it more resistant towards its waght.

I was watching the pictures and saw little to no progress in the past 20 days, the only thing making the difference was the cranes moving.
EDIT: There was also a wing pouring that i forgot to mention.

Yes, but they also have to haul building materials higher up, and they can't use as many cranes, so the difference in pace won't be that drastic.
