I don't want to make off-topic on this building but, from my solely opinion, if it wasn't the 1930 Great Depression, and the height regulation imposed at that time in New York, I think we would had the 1 km tower a lot earlier. Probably would probably not since a 1 km wouldn't be possible with the 1930 technology. Just imagine the New York skyline without the 1930 depression and the height regulation. It would have been a jewel.

I made a thread in the world forums about this topic. Feel free to share your ideas on this subject.

The U.S. wouldn't likely have reached for 1 km, most American's have no clue how far 1 km is, it's just not a distance we relate too. There is a desire in the U.S. for a 2,000 foot Tower!

It is scary looking like a spear pointing at the heavens. As if ready of attacks
from above. Maybe something in preparation in case an event might happen similar to Tower of Babel

So, I take it this is (as of now) the only serious candidate that looks like it will become the next World's tallest building, taking the title from the Burj Dubai. Correct?

others may disagree, but Sky City is also a serious candidate to take the title from Burj Khalifa. Kingdom Tower will for sure get the tite though, since Sky City will be shorter. Sky City is under preparation currently and is designed to be 838m tall. it will be build with a faster method. so althou Kingdom Tower is in a further stage of development, Sky City if built will be completed faster than Kingdom Tower, because it is shorter and uses a faster building method.

And don't forget the Azerbaijan Tower, which is getting more serious with every news about it. This may be the follower of Kingdom Tower as wtb in some year.

but the question was for the next tallest building. Azerbaijan Tower does not have a chance to get finished before Kingdom Tower.

hopefully (=
would be great to finally have buildings have the title less than 7 years which seems to be the standard by now and burj khalifa might have that crown even longer if Sky City fails.

like Burj Khalifa did (even in 2008, two years before finishing the height was said to be 808m, so still not the final height, but closer than the previous under 800m heights given), this building will probably not announce a final height for a couple more years. It will be the world's tallest building and to hold the title it has to stay quiet about its height as long as possible, this way the developers of projects like Azerbaijan Tower do not know how tall exactly they have to aim to get this title. What we can be certain of however is that the height of this building will be over 1000m. and it is very unlikely that it will be above 1200m. probably at the 1050m range i would say, but above 1100m is also possible.

arround 1100m is probably very likely since Baku plans to build at least 1050m tall. and i'm sure it won't stay at 1050m, probably 1100m+.

I would say that this tower won't be as high as some are dreaming it will be ... around 1000m and won't surpass 1050m
That's my guess
