Feasible and practical are two different things anyway. The pyramids also aren't the most practical tombs compared to the one my grandma's urn is in.

Now the tower got to a point where we can imagine how ridiculously tall is it gonna be. Amazing! Just hope the city around won't be built too late.

The floor labeling on the formworks show 49 not 45 but yes, it's wrong.

There are two jumps. The diagram should've been 51 floors not 52 and that was what shown in the images. So there are two jumps. But still, the progress is slow nowadays. I hope it gets faster in the near future. Otherwise, they might be delaying it intentionally to know the final height of the new tower in Dubai before finishing this one

How do you think they would be able to react depending on the height? Sides are totally straight, which means nowadays we should already be able to calculate the final height just by extending the wing's side until they cross.

The design of the spire at the top can be changed in a manor that doesn't have an ugly effect on the uniqueness of the design

Looks more like a statue than anything. The last time I posted here was like half a year ago or something and it hasn't changed by much.

It is exciting to believe this one is almost on hold because of Dubai new tower which will be for sure taller than Jeddah Tower in a huge margins in a way not this one or others can surpass it in the near future, but the truth has to do with many other aspects of the country and not only one. I talked to my Saudi friend last week he said they still got no approval form gov to build anything around it at all. I believe this is why it is so slow (apart from the financial reason), they don't want it to finish without having anything around it, so they are waiting for approval ... Let's hope its given to them sooner rather than later and the economy starts to heal as well.
