If J220 goes ahead this year, then I wouldn't rule out an even taller one being built in the next couple of years, so it is entirely possible that Kingdom Tower will NEVER be WTB!

J220 won't be taller than Kingdom Tower and since there's no other tower very near to an construction start it's not possible that KT won't be the tallest in 2020.

yeah 2020 is a sure thing, but something like 2023 is already a whole different story a new tallest could be proposed any day in the coming years or an already proposed one could get more serious.

if this tower even begins construction within the next 5 years ( or maybe even 10) there is a good chance that other hyper-talls like the 1001m building in city of silk kuwait may begin but there isnt any other tower proposed which is taller than this....so in short it will be the tallest tower for a long time like burj khalifa.

Loads of buildings have been built to the point of being underground, and then canceled. Especially ones that are this tall.
