Details of the deal were made public by the Saudi Press Agency. According to the contract signed, the National Water Company will supply 156,000 cubic meters of water daily for 25 years. The amount of water that is equal to over 41 million gallons will be supplied for the whole Kingdom City project.

this is not for the lagoon, this the contract to supply kingdom city and tower with portable "Drinking" water...the lagoon will be filled eather from the sea (most probably) or from recycled water.

This is due to the height od the spire on kingdom tower. The highest floor level on the drawings comes out at around level 242. Hope this clears things up.

Right. I think the 3d artist made this, because the "plain" street was to much dominating the rendering. So he made some "details" on the street texture.

The height of the tower is around 1000m on the renders so if that's waaaaay too short I'm not sure what you're expecting (or what you're drinking ).

It comes from a single set of pictures. Why would they put different model of the tower in each take? It looks somehow "fat" on that one because camera face the "wing" which goes wide to the very top parts of the tower. I'm sure it's nothing more than a perspective thing.

I see a 828 meters tall tower everyday for 4 years now. I know how that kind of height looks from different angles and distances. Or will you (and your vast experience) be deputing that as well now

if you are too close to burj khalifa you can't really see the whole building though unless you break your neck looking up, it just continues and continues
