There's something strangely fascinating about concrete mixers, bits of steel strutting out from all angles and cranes leaning over like overlords... Perhaps it's the fact they're building gigantic structures that makes it so. It never has quite the same impact when the buildings are only a few levels tall.

I think the pictures above are the first ones to show the asymmetrical floors clearly.

Not every project has to be rushed to a finish. Look at how long it took to build the WTC tower in NYC. Perhaps they have no rush due to leasing problems, or perhaps a major lease that can't start before a certain date. Who know, but the fact is they keep working, and that's what counts. IN the case of the hotel you talk about it sat for years.

WTC 1 took so long because it has an amazingly complex engeneering going on. The PATH trains run through itīs cores foundation, they had to build walls that swallow the noise from the trains, and many many other aspects, like a temporary subway staion being build next door, the logistics of ensuring that the slurry wall that holds the pressure from the Hudson River keeps itīs integrity, and many many many other aspects, among the victims families that had a role in redeveloping, and fights between Silverstein and the Port Authority.

This tower basically starts on virgin land, there is nothing but a foundation that they have to build and start the superstructure instantly.

Also one would assume from a country like KSA, that they wanna rush things to get the tallest building crown ASAP, and claim the amazing speed at which it was build. So it does not make sense at all to say "good things need time" in case of this project, but that maybe something isnīt going the way they anticipated them to go. Because i donīt see any logical reason for them to go at a rate of aproximatly 1,6 floors a month at all.

Is there any specific reason this tower is progressing so slowly?
