Why are they still saying that Sky City is going to be the tallest? This one is clearly taller.

(SliceFTW) Sky city will be finished a LOOONG time before this one!
Usually buildings that claim they will be X tallest building in the world ignore any taller U/C buildings, but in this case, it actually WILL be the tallest until KT is complete.

I don't believe this, but apparently the Mubarak Al Kabir is U/C and will be complete in 2016 (wikipedia is unreliable)

MattTheTubaGuy is right. Nowadays, only China is amongst few to trust. Mubarak tower was due 2026, not 2016. But it's highly improbable they can finish till 2026. The project seems to be canceled.

Fantastic Video !! .BTW , they are speaking in Arabic and they said that Prince Al-Waleed visited the tower site to see the processes of the project which are in the Pilling stage. So, they are not talking about planning to start, soil testing or something else !! and the project is really U/C with no doubt ..
