Haha! That doesn't make sense indeed. It's impossible to get built if it's close to the airport.

this building in a ( 1000 m zone ) so basically the 1000m zone doesn't have a limit according to the height zones plan..
have a look at this official document:

Let´s think that the height of one floor is 4m (such a tall storey), and there will be 10 technical floors.

161*4 +10*4= 684m Roof is only at 684 m above ground level!

1007-684= 323

323 m of spire!

I really doubt that this only has 161 floors, it should be at least 180+.

Anymore other airport in the world where building more than 40 ft build near to it? 8km is consider near to airport.

For example Singapore is a city state, CBD area is 25 km away from airport but building maximum height is 280m.

this is not the airport map..this is the building heights zones according to Jeddah municipality..and you can see the height is written on each zone.
the the closest pass by point for an air craft is 3 Km on the height level of ~ 8000 ft
