Yes, but it's better than it was just recently, when the speed was almost zero.
We will wait for the speed increase, but the main thing is that now they observe in a certain stable rhythm

Well, at least the tower is progressing at a much faster rate than mid-last year, even if that rate is slow compared to the rate that would be required to finish in 2019. Hopefully, they won't delay the project another year, though that is quite possible.

It could go a little quicker but I suppose they need time for the cement to set.

People need to stop comparing this to Burj Khalifa. Burj Khalifa had many similar floor plates. Kingdom Tower every floor plate is a little smaller and different. This is a much more complex building. I do wish they would build surrounding buildings now though. Its kind of boring to watch.

If you build it, they will come.

Nobody confirmed anything. This 828 + 100 m nonsense is a misinformation which dates back to that interview Alabbar gave CNN one year ago.
It was just him teasing the viewers about the final hight which still remains a secret. As far as I know, the tender specification for lifts clearly stipulated last technical floor at 1000+ metres.
