Maybe smaller changes, but no complete design-change i think

In my opinion, they're both beautiful towers (Burj Khalifa and Kingdom Tower). Personally, I'm not a big fan of supertall skyscrapers. I prefer something humbler and simpler. But to give credit to Dubai and Jeddah, at least they're coming up with some very beautiful proposals, which will beautify the skyline. But I agree they should tone it down a bit.

Quite obviously. It would be hard to convince anybody to visit saudi arabia with just second or third tallest. It has to be the numero uno

I remember reading the exact same criticisms in the 60's and 70's when talk of mile-high and kilometer-high buildings was bandied about.

Concrete tech has advanced a great deal just in the past 10 years.

I would agree, but it's a non-scientific thing of 'feel'.

Like the 86th floor of the ESB being the top and not the dirigible mast.
The 159th floor of BK.
The 71st of the CB.

The ceiling of the top floor that is used on a regular basis, and no - making the 'ceiling' 300 metres tall does not count.

I think we are priviliged to live in times of centenial, civilizational, and economical transition. In 40 years world will be such a different place. And it will be future generations to ask us - how did Dubai look back then, how did this look, or that. We live in the dawn of a new age. Its like living in New York in 1900.

I have a question. How is the tower will have all the floors? Together with the technical floors?

A tower I really like. IMO is better than the Buri Khalifa Just need some updating. They should rise along with interest around the project. I wonder what the rest of the buildings at 200-300 meters and its construction also started.
