It is the second or third design I've seen, I don't think the other designs were official designs though.

There was another design that popped up at some point in relation to Kingdom Tower, I think it was some sort of conceptual project from Smith + Gill. Can anyone find that? It had a fine diagonal mesh covering if I remember right.

It was a SOM's proposition for the Kingdom Tower. Well never confirmed it was for KT but I think it is pretty obvious. Here all available graphics of that design. To be honest it might look boring from the outside but I have to say from the structural point of view and introduced features It would be much more interesting to watch this one U/C. It would be something new while what we have is pretty much higher version of BK.

Thanks for the schemes. It's an interesting design though I like the current one far more. I wonder what roof height will this tower have

That platform is so ugly. The building has an awesome design but it is ruined by the platform

So, it means that this building gets a spire of about 200m just to get to 1000m or so?

do you call this little cute spire gigantic? (look at the spire which appears clearly in this render)



unless it's going to shoot up when the construction reaches this part, to reach 1?51m

You can also see the short spire clearly in this photo, marked with distinctive colours of the spire and (probably) the facade. Also, am i seeing light coming out of the windows just below the base of the spire? Will it mean walkable area or rooms?

Wow, that spire sure is small. That's good cause it means the roof height will be really big

No it's not. This is most likely the design from the architects competition which was later won by S&G. The first design/vision was the one with two supporting towers next to the main tower, and it was presented way earlier before SOM's proposition. I think 2007 it was.

It wasn't even a design, just a sketch.

even IF it was a spire of 200m, burj khalifas highest floor is also under 700m and this building would get the tallest in all means
