Today is Friday, the Muslim holy day, so that explains the cranes being idle.

I still do not understand how this building can be efficiently utilized with floor plates that are so narrow.

Hi guys! Do you think the tower will be somewhere in between level 95 and 84 by the end of this year? Or even more than L95?

Thank you from Barcelona

how can the construction and completion of a building this size have no effect whatsoever, if nothing else it proves buildings on this scale are viable,.

I mean the construction speed of this project is horrid, if this was the BK it would have been nearing completion by now. I hope that the Jeddah Tower is completed but it seems unlikely at this point.
