I wouldn't be surprised to see this capped off and finished. But who knows, it's conjecture.

This will probably take longer than the Ryugyong.. only 3 floors in the last 24 months! If they continue at this speed, it will take another 45 years! Even the Washington Monument was built quicker!

They will probably have to re-patch concrete at the base by the time it reaches the top.

Nope, that are the Al Kazim Towers, and they resemble the Petronas twins opponent, the Chrysler Building.

Speaking of Petronas Towers, Eversendai, the Malaysian based company who manufactured and installed the bridge between the two Petronas, is also designing and will manufacture and install the brdge-like roof connecting the towers .... however, last I heard some times back, they haven't yet decided if it would be manufactured/assembled en-site (as the top of Burj Khalifa), or it will be lifted in pre-fab sections, as the bridge on the Petronas was.

By the time they get set to stick the roof on this they'll probably be able to float it up there with anti gravity devices.

You never know, it was a british scientist who discovered it after all.
You people from more backward countries have a lot to be grateful about when it comes to british scientists discoveries.
