Just an observation, for a hotel and residential the footprint is good. Just not sure about an office given the super structure but that is life.

For a tower this big I would have thought there would be more lifts but there are also four stairs. Maybe it’s just the way it’s done in Saudi. It would be the other way around if this were in Australia.
It is not a big deal. Every tower has its own interior design

Well said. Even a simple factor of that many tower cranes costing thousands of dollars a day to sit idle must weigh on pocketbooks to some extent. Are we seeing a labor issue / pay issue, or something else? Until we are informed, the best we can do is guess. I would hope this tower has too much riding on it and is too far along to just stop, but stranger things have happened out there.

When will the surrounding buildings construction start? will it start after the Jeddah tower is finished or will the construction begin in 2018 or 2019?

It is going to be 300 meters taller than the Burj Khalifa, as revealed by the chief development officer at the JEC.

Completion is mentioned for 2019, which will probably not be realized.
(Certainly not when it becomes 1138 m instead of 1007 m.)




The article also claims that Dubai Creek Tower will be 928 m (100 m higher than BK).
We all know from this forum that it will probably be around 1300 m.




So how reliable are these sources?

300m figure is not mentioned in the article itself, it is stated by the JEC official in the video. The video is in the link.

End 2019 is only 2 years from now.
If they want to reach that goal, they really have to pick up speed !
