BTW happy thanksgiving.

Totally agree. But regardless, it will be a hell of an achievement to build the first tower surpassing 1 KM in height!

This is a very informative video on crane assembly and disassembly during the Kingdom tower build.

Very informative and quite an incredible feat of engineering itself.

I think this has little to do with the kind of building we are getting. In China it is demand that drive's the building and it's design. The giant mass thing seems to be good for the middle East because they are building a trophy.

The articles I've seen imply it's been on hold since at least May of 2016, though I think SOME work has been done in the last year. It was originally supposed to be completed this year or next year and that has since been pushed out to 2020 last I heard.

If you watch the video posted further up on this page it looks like they accomplished a lot from May to Dec. 1, 2016. The video only goes up to 12/1/2016. I see no evidence it's on hold. As for being done this year or next wasn't that changed a long time ago? It's rather clear they're nowhere near being done.

Just going from the news articles I've seen.

If you go to the 1:35 mark of the video you reference, you can see that they've accomplished very little vertical work between July and December of last year.

Hi!
After a quick search, I found an article mentioning a financial problem as the cause of the tower's construction delay :

Pierre Marcout of Prisme Entertainment presents at the 2016 China Conference Session 6b: Jeddah City & Jeddah Tower.

Following experience around the world with tall buildings and monuments, Pierre Marcout has sought to transmit his passion for highlighting monuments for new constructors and their iconic buildings. After testing monuments such as the Burj Khalifa for its launch, and creating the world record for lighting, the next challenge for him was to create for the future world's tallest building, Jeddah Tower. Whilst working passionately towards this next challenge of designing the lighting for Jeddah Tower to be revealed in a couple of years, it is important to highlight the towers signatures and accentuate its character through the latest state of the art innovations in lighting. In this presentation, Mr. Marcout discussed the benefits of monumental lighting designs.

Yeah and by "contractor problems" they mean "we weren't paying the contractor so they stopped working":

Quote:
Mr Jomah said the delay was “due to a number of factors – mainly to the contractor”.
“Basically, it was a financial problem. Until we secured a loan from the bank … to make sure that the cash flow for the contractor is more stable for the time schedule.”

Jeddah Tower Climbs Higher in New Photos
Quote:
We last checked in on the Jeddah Tower, the 167-storey megatall that is next in line to become the world's tallest building. Back then, the tower's structure was over 20 percent complete. In the latest photos from the site, the ever-rising core has substantially jumped to around the 50-floor mark. And it still has a long journey ahead: the tower will eventually top the 1,000-metre milestone, becoming the first structure on the planet to climb over a kilometre into the sky.
