Guys, the thing is that we want to see the greatest structure, I dont care if it is in my country or in my second country (UAE), I just want to see high quality structures, let the owners challenge each other, we are the winners eventually and we will enjoy them both

Thank you guys

If they'd conceive a 840m building - it would become the tallest structure for a while, and could hold this title for about 2 years - because it would be topped out in 2018 (they'd be able to start sooner, finish the foundations quicker, and raise it to about 500m by now).

If the new tower in Dubai is going to be a building, things would be much better for Dubai but sadly, they couldn't start building a building that high, which actually makes JT much greater

But, good for Dubai to try not to accept losing the highest structure title and accept only losing the highest building title

(In 2020 everything will be clearer)

I have my theory why this thing will speed up very soon.

It is only theory and assumptions. Only some maths

Let's assume the bottleneck are the wings due to their big size. If you take into account they are right-angled triangles, the 29.3% of the bottom part has the same area than the 70.7% on the top (1/sqrt(2)). Considering the wings have a total height of around 670m (the rest is just a prolongation of the core), that milestone was at 196m, which has been already surpassed. Therefore, if you see it like that, the work for the wings is more than 50% finished.

For that reason, I assume we will see jumps more often than until now.

That is, moreless, what I already stated in post 16525.

not a profesionnal skyscraper engineer,
But as the height increase (for the same volume ofc) it didn't get harder and harder to build because of logistic , and so increasing construction time?

Decreasing construction time you mean. If the wing jumps are more frequent construction will speed up
