I studied information technology. I think I can make simple calculations based on proportions

It's actually interesting how this design confuse people. Unlike burj from some angles it wont really look like a tapering building.

A 1 km tall building will NOT look that short .... and Burj doesn't look the same from all angles too, plus the Burj has a different outline then KT

Oh but it look like that. If you don't believe me just take THIS or THIS render measure the plot, the tower and calculate it yourself (assuming you can). Or you deny math now too?

The tower on those renders is 1km tall. If you suggest that one render have for some reason lower model ask yourself why in the world in a single render from the bunch would they insert drastically lower model from the rest if it's the same masterplan 3d model and the same tower??

even in these latest renders (which were made by the the master planner and not by the architects) it shows a +1 Km tower.
As I mentioned when I first posted them, these renders are showing the master plan for Kingdom City and not the tower it self. they're showing the the roads network in KC (Kingdom City), the buildings distribution and approximate heights, the Lagoon outline and the area around Kingdom Tower.
Ooh, By the way
By the latest hints I got,I can assure that the Tower's final height will be a big surprise... even for me
I hope this post was informative.

What are you talking about?

On the specific render I was referring to, the graphic designer got the perspective wrong, and the tower appears to be shorter then what it should have been portrayed from that perspective.

Once again, I DO KNOW how a tower of that weight looks from different perspectives and distances in real life, and the design artist got it wrong on that particular render. Period.

Don't try to prove me wrong by showing me unrelated stuff .... and yeah, go watch a tower almost as tall (or even half or 1/3 as tall for that matter), and then come and tell me I am "wrong"

So they are doing the same what they have done with BK. Probably afraid of those Azerbeijan Tower/J220 proposals I was kind of suspecting they'd keep the final height to themselves but luckily wth have Rody69 who rams through rumors like a Ghost Rider

J220 will not be a threat. J220 will not have any height nearly as tall to endanger Kingdom Towers height. If everything goes right J220 will be come the tallest building in the world and then Kingdom Tower gets the title afterwards from J220. i expect Kingdom Tower to end up with a height slithly taller than 1000m, maybe ~1080 is what we will get in the end

You other fail to understand what I am saying, or your ignorance and lack of real life experience in tall buildings blocks you from seeing the obvious .... KT has been drown too short for its height, on that particular render (once again boy: On that PARTICULAR image, not any other, not the ones you linked in your previous post)
