Well, this project IS progressing.
Not fast, but it is.


So why not reach at least 1000 m?
I have quite some confidence in that !

You're joking! At the very most, another 2 floors, but more likely just one, so let's say level 65.

In respect to the missing infrastrukture it may be appropriate to be that slow, so they can finish it simultaneously in like five years. If the adventurous prince have not ruined the country till then.

I asume that if by the end of the NEXT year is not about that level or more, it's gonna be hard to see it finished by 2020

Right, by the end of 2018, it had better be more than 20 storeys taller than it is now. But I guess that's the sort of pace it has been moving at for several months now. 1 to 2 storeys per month...

In it‘s best times they reached 1 floor per week. But even that was slow against the construction of Burj Khalifa.

But at the moment i would be really happy about 1 floor per week....

I can't wait for this to get higher than Burj Khalifa but I think it is going to take another year or more before this gets to 828M
