Are there any detailed architectural plans for this building that have been released yet? If so, can I get a look at them?

Thanks so much in advance

Unfortunately, a lot of the details about this project are still confidential and I seriously doubt if any of the companies involved will release any technical drawings. I guess someone will have to dig up some drawings the hard way, just like what was done with Burj Khalifa.

That's true. Maybe it'll end like the Metlife North Building in NYC, topped out where they run outta money but I really doubt it'll ever be completed to it's full height

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?

I went today to the tower site Unfortunately No entry and imaging , it is clear that in the very discreetly , I spoke with the security guard at the gate of the project , He said they are working on the underground rail columns and also i see a number of foreign engineers as they entered the land of the project and I saw some cars carrying equipment and workers

I'm sorry if the translation is accurate

- To the rendering above the clouds at #3206:
Fascinating impression, but doesn't appear realistic to me. I doubt that the original picture was taken at below 1000 meters - these clouds look like cumuli, that easily reach up to over 4 km. Most likely this was taken at the travelling height of long distance flights, so Kindom Tower would be way out of proportion... here constructions workers would need oxygene masks indeed, plus extra clothing against the extreme low tempreratures.

- To the worldstallest-diagram at #3217:
in the 2000's: +64m or +17% .... very remarkable
in the 2010's: +159m or +36% ... sheer insane! Even the 2000 leaders Petronas Towers and (then) Sears Tower have fallen from the list!

But of course this is like comparing apples and pearns, as the latter is just foreseen. In 2020, some candidates might be cancelled, put on hold or finished with reduced height. On the other hand, increases are possible as well, and for other new projects, the time window for construction start is also open until circa 2014, so that they can be finished in the 2010's.

In the end it might depend on Kindom Tower as new word's tallest, that the CTBUH calculations become reality.

Not too sure about that, Chicago was supposed to build a supertall (waterview tower) and now it's going to be a midsize skyscraper.
