If the cladding is awful, the building is awful, even if it is very tall ... but I think that cladding is great ... I need another perspective!

In that picture with the model of future Jedda, I see two 400 to 500 m buildings (in addition to the JT).

Wow! This is certainly great news. The bim-me construction renderings had been correct all along! From here, we can expect cladding to lag ~60 floors behind the core. After months of slow construction, this is a great sign.

I think they were so slow because of cladding desining/production

Yeah, I'm sure financial issues and oil prices have nothing to do with it.

I am sure Saudi Arabia is rich enough to spare 1 billion dollars.

there is the diamond tower 432m, but it's a circular tower while the 2 on the image are not.

I just checked the webcam, and as of 1 PM today local time, all of the cranes were sitting idle and there seemed to be no activity whatsoever.

The webcam is not working from a month, unless you mean on August 13

re the height changes at this point - of course it is possible to redesign every structure at any point, it's just a matter of cost and virtue of the structural engineer. however, no building can be "made 30% taller", especially when construction is at around quarter the original height. some of you might need a reality check. you dont design a 1000metre building and then magically make it a 1300 building just cause a neighbour builds a taller one.

this or it was always meant to be higher and they kept that information secret

Then you saw the panorama picture. This one is being updated every 24 hours and the cranes on the tower are looking different and not idle
