There are many ways, electricity is not the only thing but ok nevermind, sorry for asking lol.

They can do the glass panels with telescope cranes up to, say, approx. 80 m.


After that, the tower cranes have to take over and will thus be occupied with the cladding for a certain part of time.

Nice photos you guys! I was going to ask when they would start construction on the buildings around KT and your photos answered my question. Thanks!

Really neat in the aerial photos that you can see the plots / site divisions.

As of Dec 3, 9:15 a.m. local time:




All cranes seem to be working and cladding added on the right side, towards the back.

As some expected,

Capturing the prince did not affect the construction processes. We can say that they are even faster now

According to the history of jumps, currently the height should be 258m, on the 64th floor.

*17/06/18 - F59 - 238M
*17/07/13 - F60 - 242M
*17/07/19 - F61 - 246M
*17/08/14 - F62 - 250M
*17/10/30 - F63 - 254M
*17/11/24 - F64 - 258M

Now, I will put quotes, which support my argument.

The diagram has an error, because it has marked the 58th floor in 59. But until now it is correct. Floor 258, 234M.

Because of the wrong alsaif diagram, you continued wrong with the height.

The 64th floor can not have 256 meters. It is wrong.
And it's still on the 63rd floor.

It has 254M. The number in the tower is not updated in each jump.

Nice diagarama, but the height should be 258M, on the 64th floor.

================================

I hope you have understood my explanation, it took me time.
If someone does not agree with me, respond with valid arguments.

I'm not sure that our initial floor count is correct, but if it is, I consider my argument correct.

greetings to all.

False.


The 64th floor can not have 256 meters. It is wrong.
And it's still on the 63rd floor.


It's still 254 M.


The last jump was on 17/10/30 - F63 - 254M.



Arent 258m 64F?

Yes, you are right, the jump after the next one could count for 11 meters in height. From the diagram, it makes much more sense than 7 meters

Anything like that is still possible.


They can built up to 1000 m as originally planned, and add an additional spire of 50 or 100 m.


A limiting factor could be: What was designed for the highest crane? Can it go higher than planned?
Or maybe a jack-up spire like at Burj Khalifa is possible...


Let the future surprise us !

I would be happy if they reach 800m, then will hope for 900, 1000 and 1100m
