So ... Someone's said that the building will be exact to the model and another that it'll have some changes then... What is going to happen?

The model is official but the height isn't ... they said it might be taller than 700m so technically speaking it is not the final model in terms of height but it is the final design for it although it might get some minor tweaks here and there.

Why am I not surprised that they want to make this skyscraper taller? XD

So basically no one has a clue if this is actually the final model or not, I actually like the look of it. Something a little different for Dubai which is always welcome. I hope to see 700+, that said I really cannot see this finished for 2020, but who knows stranger things have happened.

Well Kingdom Tower only reached a height of 30 floors and they want to complete all the 1000m by 2019. Why shouldn't a 300-350m shorter tower not be finished (or almost finished) by 2020.
Of course, they should start the works now if they want to keep the plan. For me, it's the best looking Megatall in the world

But the work in the KT should be much more advanced than it is now.

The answer to that is kingdom tower won't be completed by 2019.

The big point is beginning already, I don't doubt it'll be fast if it's still to be planned steel-only.
