I really donīt think a country like KSA wouldnīt hurry to bring this up as fast as possible.


Hi germantower, If you are from germany that is great, take a look at this

"Meanwhile, the King Abdulaziz Public Transport Project announced on its Twitter account that it had signed an agreement with Ibrahim Al-Jaffali Car Company and Mercedes Benz to set up plants that would manufacture the buses for the project in Sudair Industrial City."

Do you guys like to invest in wrong places?

I know this is off topic

If this tower speeds up as before it can definitely finish fast. No one really knows with such matters lots of factors are involved.

It's gone up by four metres since the January update...hopefully there's good reason for this and the next few months will be quicker.

The percentage is about the maximum height, not its volume.
The current height is 214 meters. The total height will be 1006 meters. So:

1006m -> 100%
214m -> 21.27%

So the percentage is about the total level that the last floors have.
If you know how to calculate the volume percentage, I'd like to know. Thank you.
