There is no point in guessing it's final height now already. Just remember how look it took to finally reveal Burj Khalifas' final height.
The planners always can play with the spire and add a few more meters without major problems. Imho we will have to wait a few more years to finally know how tall it'll be in the end.

A super rough by-the-hand gauging of those two photos with the people included as models had me estimating the height at right around ~4,000 feet / ~1,230 meters. Not completely unreasonable. Occupiable is of course much lower but eh, we can hope! Just excited to watch it rise up and up and up and... ^_^

If you pulled it out of your finger, the others on the contrary have calculated it on the mock-up model - to be closer to almost 1100m.

Of course the developers of this would announce the height as 928 M. If they announced it higher than 1,000 M then the Kingdom Tower would increase the height of the spire, it was the same procedure that was followed when they built the BK. They said it was going to be a "tad" taller than Taipei and it turns out more than 33% taller.

He said it earlier it is a secret and they don't know it and will only be revealed when this is completed which instantly makes CNN claim irrelevant

There is no such thing here, as an "official" figure. You have no choice other than to be content with superficial.

That tall building on the right seems to be about 70 floors not including parapet so maybe 830-1,000 feet or so for some idea of perspective. But then if the occupiable levels are twice that high, that's still barely past 600 meters. Seems too low still because we don't have a truly square on perspective. Hmm.

Final height is 928 m and it will be 100 m taller than Burj Khalifa.

Ok we saw this interview already and we read about it but never during it the developer did say it will be 100m higher! People need to understand Al Abbar is smart he won't spill this secret to CNN or anyone! Even the design team doesn't know the height!

PLUS ... if we calculate the height of this render taking into consideration the stem width is 30m we get a height around 1200m!

Height is still UNKNOWN it still a SECRET!
