Site investigation is underway I think.... As such, ground works in July looks a tad overoptimistic!

There is a very close coloration between a large recession and the delivery/announcement of a tower.




This tower seems too late to be announced. It will be the Jeddah Tower that breaks the camels back this time.:

Delivery makes sense. They're the peak of a boom. Announcement doesn't, but then I don't know which of these are announced or delivered....

The one in Jeddah is moving, slowly. It's a tough one for sure.

Generally, they get announced near the peak of the boom, and delivered into the recession. Deffo was the case for the Burj (delivered into 2010 recession - peak was 2007) and Canary Warf (1980s not shown here).

Yeah, thought as much.

Looking at that chart shows just how mental the Chrysler and Empire State towers were for the time.
