256 meters high is a huge mark! And it´s only a quarter of its total mark! OMG!

It has only risen 10m since the beginning of August, knowing that it is getting thinner. So slow it's boring

AAMOF, it is. 1-2 years ago, some folks were saying it's gonna get faster later on. They didn't wanna listen to me when I was saying there will be other difficulties to deal with.

I just had this thought, maybe they're slowing down to see the final height of the Dubai creek tower !!!
Cause Jeddah tower finish time is before 2020 and Dubai's tower will finish in 2020.
Cause both towers +1000m LOL
Specially Dubai will do the impossible to be number 1
And maybe Jeddah want to challenge Dubai for once
Will see in 2020

Other people had this theory before, and everyone of them got dismissed. This isn't how buildings work.

The Dubai tower is said to become 1300+ m.


Original design for Jeddah Tower was 1007 m or something. There is no way that Jeddah Tower can become 1300+ m or even higher.

The sides of Jeddah Tower reach a point; it's too late now to change where they converge.

If you ask an average architect, he will confirm your quite solid point of view. However, there's a virtue of invention, which allows to solve such problem, and improve the design at the same time. But of course it will not be done here (this issue is not significant here anymore).

That's more than just test cladding.

If anything, any height increase would likely be from a taller spire.. so nah. Leave it as it is I say. It will still be the tallest free-standing structure ever made, and that to me is far more impressive.

Agree. Increasing the height now to 1200 or even 1300m would look pretty weird.
