even if Kingdom Tower ends up being 1060m, I am sure they would redesign the spire a bit up to make sure to get the record. as they are many years after kingdom tower topping out they would know exactly what they need to beat.

I believe this entire project is on-hold and the developer is in jail if I got the information right.

he was , due to the misuse of the loan provided to him by the CBA ( Central Bank of Azerbaijan ) . I believe the developer is selling the company to repay his loans , maybe a better company can continue this project

Khazar Islands was never a government project , it's/was a privately funded project. As for the tallest tower in the world , it's an effective way to promote the project and expand the tourism industry for the city , just look at Dubai.

no source claimed it was. It wasn't thought to start before 2016 anyways. so next year we will see.

unlikely to get thru, but we will see.

I know how shocking that Azerbaijan never got around to building this wildly unrealistic project.
