The core is the tower. You can see floor plates about 1/3 of the way up. The tower will not be getting much bigger with floors and cladding.

Perhaps in the next 3-4 months

Mallorca seen from my hometown...Barcelona. 185 km far.
This view could be seen 3 or 4 times a year due to weather conditions.

The closest point in Egypt to this tower is over 200km away and it is not as mountainous as Mallorca.

To solve the question whether the tower can be seen from Egypt you should use the formula described in the section "objects above horizon" at this link: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horizon I'm too lazy to do it.
