Looking nice, but that's a super huge space wastage on top of the concourse level around JT tower. It could be turned into a nice terrace. And the glass bridge across the pool would better be straight (at least nos so terribly curved).

Why all these cranes on the ground around the tower?
Is there any explanation?

That tells us nothing about the cranes. Why are they there?

The cranes are for other construction projects around the tower part of Kingdom City's whole new area in this part of Jeddah

Definitely some elements are copy-pasted from Dubai Downtown. From the beginning, JT's design has made a clear statement there's a lack of ideas.

Please excuse me for my ignorance, but is there any reason why construction on this tower has been so slow lately? At this rate, it won't be finished in 10 years! I sure hope the construction speed picks up again, it started so well.

Has anyone ever done a graph showing floor level/height over time?

Only then could we really see if the construction is slowing down.

It seems like it has advanced just a few floors over the past 6 months. It's either being redesigned after Emaar had double-crossed JEC with the tower named The Tower, or it is practically on hold (look at the recent oil price change, and then - recent solar panels efficiency announcements, which leaves no chance for oil price to recuperate).

Trump winning the US election is good news for this project and the country system. It will encourage changing the system and opening it more for tourism instead of depending this much on oil. Especially, when this project gets finished

It's just a render, they didn't pay attention to the end walls. It won't progress further than the end walls we see now.
