I find the amount of negativity around a world's tallest building thats 20% complete astonishing. Especially since this is in essence engineers forum, not mumsnet.

It will stay at this speed until the developer is fully recovered. I think they need some time and it might even be around six months. So, we need to be patient. 2020 is way too far from nowadays

Those 200 meters contain 40% of the total volume above the ground level. 40% in 2 years means that the rate is 20% per year which makes construction right on the schedule as planned and will make it able to finish in 2020
