That's a nice plaza and base.

I like how it flows-somewhat at odds with the sharp edges of the building, though.

This was taken day before, there has been literally no progress (one floor) since my last update in January. There are various issues and it has slowed down drastically, unfortunately I cant give you the reasons due to confidentiality. The only thing I can say is that the slowdown has nothing to do with Oil prices.

Are you saying it slowed down drastically recently, or that it has slowed down drastically for a longer period of time already?

I wish that instead of building super tall buildings, why not re-build ancient sites from the ground up using FDM materials. Like the ancient gardens of Babylon (Iraq), Persepolis (Iran) and a whole bunch of pre-Islamic sites in the Middle East. I bet tourism will skyrocket like never before. I mean just look at this 3d printed model of the Syrian temple of Baal. Sadly the one they just destroyed. Just build on a proper scale.

It has been slow for a while but has slowed down drastically for a few months now and is virtually in standstill at the moment.

I hope you correct your self, the slowing down has nothing to do with oil prices, in fact its just so funny when some through statements from thier imagination and grant it for fact.
the whole thing is simple, the main contractor (Bin Laden- ABCD) just came out from law suits and detailed investigations, and they signed the legal settlement in January.
and as a part of this settlement SBG-ABCD had to pass all the main project to another "independent" sector of the group (Bin Laden- PBAD), including this project and the holy mosque projects in MAkkah and Madinah.
and as a person who's close to the "new" main contractor, things need like another 2-3 months to go on a full swing.

RIP SBG-ABCD

Thats exactly what I had said, it had nothing to do with oil prices but other issues which I didnt want to state but you have.

Is that one floor higher? It's too small to be sure.

This tower is just a pike without any specifities or interests. Plus the fact that it is built in a no man's land...
Typically middle eastern (preposterous) ideas...
