There is no such thing in anybody's plans.

That's exactly what I mean: the basic functional structure is very plain.

A few visionary Japanese firms have thought of these in the 80's and 90's. Try-2004 pyramid, X-Seed 4000 (4000 meters!), and others. Frank Lloyd Wright's Mile High City was 5600 feet to the spire or 1867 meters.

It's a schematic view of a multi story observatory, what were you expecting up there, a pirate ship?

that is the same video we saw they just translated it to an article! that's nothing new and the truth remains Al Abbar didn't say it himself during his interview its CNN that mentioned it for a second! I won't be surprise if he was asked before hand and he just threw this number at them to give them something to shut them up

Concerning correct information, the press is probably the least reliable source...Wait for a confirmation.

Final height is still a secret but as said "its a notch higher than BK", take your on discrepancy on how much a notch is. Construction has begun with site remediation works underway in preparation for the piling which should start in August.

and final height will stay a secret for a while longer. If a height was announced now Kingdom Tower could just increase the metal spire on top to be taller. This is a tower and will have a faster construction than Kingdom Tower, but rise much much later, so it will be really interesting to see how it pans out. I do hope that both Towers will not easily give in and increase their height a bit. A bit like what happened with Chrysler 85 years ago.

That's what they said about BK in comparison to Taipei 101

Also I think in the latest interview I heard that the steel ropes are not necessary for holding the tower and more like accessories, does that make it a regular old tower?

Yeah absolutely and i also Hope it will turn out like The competition between the Chrysler building and Bank of Manhattan Building Back in the 1930s The Bank of Manhattan building only got to be the world's tallest for one month Because the Chrysler building had a secret spire added at the last moment.
