Jeddah Tower would be alone for 3 and half years from now I guess?
There now build road ... no drilling everywhere for skyscrapers
Could be first appearance drilling for skyscrapers about late 2018 i guess?

Right wing jumped today.
In total we have full circle of new floor jumping - core and 3 wings in 3 day 17.07-20.07
Let's see how long it will take to the next floor.

Cladding should begin soon... This BIM-ME construction rendering created in 2015 shows the tower at level 80-- only 19 floors from here -- with cladding up to about level 20. However, the burj khalifa started cladding at a much higher level than shown in this image. At this point, only time will tell.

Yes, what happened to Al Saif? He always had a lot of excellent photos to share in those occasional updates.

I just checked the webcam, and the floor counts listed on the core and wing are 56/45 - I assume that those are old and the actual number is higher?

Could the fact that the top floors are much farther away from the camera than the ground floors pose a problem in the future?

I know I know... This is a dumb question. While I was creating the construction timeline on page 854, I noticed that no matter how accurately I scaled the base of the tower from the earthcam photos to match the size of the 3d rendering's base, the upper floors would not completely match the 3d rendering's floors. I am assuming that this is the same reason why any 3d rendering of the tower is usually taken from a bird's-eye instead of from ground view. And since the cameras are situated on the ground, this could pose a problem in the near future when trying to compare construction at the current stage to a 3d rendering. Will this ever become an obstacle in the future?
