That's what happens when people are ignorant, stupid stereotypes occur. Every skyscraper in a desert country is now "middle of desert"

The city itself is in the middle of the desert so it's not wrong.

It's not 385! It's a 400 m tower!
Please change it back to 400 m which is the real height.

doka the company that built the structure says its 400:

Walter P Moore the mechanical engineer in charge of the tower says its a 400 m tower:

Have you seen any drawings to confirm that it is 400m tall?

Are you an engineer? I'm an Engineer and I would go with what the mechanical contractor would say, He is the one who gets the project built.

No, I am not an engineer, but I believe in the saying "blueprints don't lie". I have been lucky to get my hands on drawings on major projects in the past. Let's hope if my luck continues with this one.
