This might explain more ..



So, it's definitely higher than BK because it far in this screenshot and BK is much closer and they are at the same level on the screen. But, the question is

The new building, which will be an observation tower, will be linked to the central island district of Dubai Creek Harbour with a vibrant 4.5-km-long creek boardwalk offering an array of retail, dining, leisure and entertainment choices on the Dubai Creek, according to the state news agency Wam.

Guys I think that this tower will be 900 + Meters I think it will be taller than the Burj Khalifah but I don't think it will be taller than the Kingdom Tower. It is all marketing. The Arabs want to promote Jeddah and want to bring foreigners to Jeddah by building the tallest building. If they Build the Iconic Tower in Dubai Taller than the Kingdom Tower than no longer will the kingdom tower have REP They need to allow the Kingdom Tower to be the title holder for some time. Like if you agree.

Dubai and Jeddah aren't in the same country. Why would we want to promote Jeddah while we have our own tourism in the UAE?

Jeddah is the 2nd largest city in saudi arabia. They want to promote Jeddah buy building kingdom city, hoping to attract tourism and developers etc: They do not want to build the 2 tallest buildings in the same city. The Arabs want Jeddah to be like Dubai. Jeddah is also next to the ocean, Red Sea. They predict that it may help boost the economy.
