I think this tower's speed of construction is almost as slow as the other infamous tower getting built in Jeddah

2nd, doing so you lose about 80% of potential floor space. I think the final tower is going to be a round cylinder just like every other round tower out there.
it is possible but are they going to give up their mad design ??

if so , why the core stop jumping ? . i believe they will assign another contractor to build the rest of the tower ,
Because if this poor contractor can't even complete the podium, Would he be able to do the complicated part , i don't think so.


if they suddenly decide to give up the original design and complete pouring the same way , the tower pretty much will look like this one





which could be much nicer than the original design in my opinion ...

There is rebar sticking out of the edges of the floor slabs in a few places so maybe there will be some sort of addition to the outside but not quite as extreme as the render suggests. I'm guessing just balconies arranged in a spiral. It could still look quite interesting if they do it right.

There is no evidence the tower has been redesigned.

A boom in twisted towers is reshaping our skylines.

I think the Arabs need to seek the help of the Chinese in this project.

If this is what took 10 years to accomplish, I'm not going to live long enough to see this thing completed. I've only got about 40 years left.

If you look at the image you can see the base is different, that is because the first 15 floors have lifts for the owners car! That's right, you can park your car in your apartment on levels 1 - 15.

The original design will definitely be built. Look at the built-in area of the cone-shaped core structure in the 2nd picture of post 556. That is significant evidence the spiral will be built.

If they haven't planed to build a spiral part, they didn't stay many pieces of armature ..
