One can tell this building is rising faster by looking at the Earthcam feeds - view 2 now at the stage where they will have to start raising the camera in order to capture the top of the building. View 1's camera must be further away, because it can still get the whole building into the frame.

Finally... After 26 days of waiting. Even though it took alost a month for the core to jump, this is nothing compared to the time last year when the tower was nearly on hold. During that time, there was a 70 day gap between core jumps, nearly 3x longer than the gap between the latest core jump and the previous one.

I can't believe they're serious about the helicopter landing pad. Surely wind would make it too dangerous to use?

It will not be helicopter landing pad. It will be observation deck.

And it's my least favorite part of this building. The structure is very angular and symmetric, and suddenly... SLAM! a weird round frisbee flying saucer looking thing that crashed into the side of the building. I think it looks terrible. They should use the "gill" like motif, like directly below it, to create a more seamless observation deck. And this would be 360. You could have these observation "balconies" on all three sides. I still hope than when they get to that point, some engineering concern will get them to drop that flying saucer.

Tastes differ. In my opinion a round platform makes the building truly iconic - more unic, more interesting, more futuristic then other megatalls. The platform gives the opportunity to be outdoors at an altitude of 600 meters, just think about it!

I think the Jeddah Tower sky terrace will be a bigger attraction than the one on Burj Al Arab.

. I'd think so. Why? Simple. Jeddah's outdoor terrace is a proper observation deck level. The Burj Al Arab's terrace is a helicopter landing pad for the hotel. Sure it gets some classy visitors now and then but it's not like the general public is allowed on the roof of that building.

i was always under the assumption that the external round terrace was a private thing as part of a very exclusive penthouse apartment on the top floors
has that changed,or do we not know?

The one in Dubai at the Burj Al Arab is a Heliport, on the other its and indoor bar restaurant 27 floors up. Hardly makes for a good comparison.

jeddah has its own weight in the world it is rich of culture and history beside the religious value. the red sea project that will be completed 2021 in north jeddah will add a value too.
