i think Kingdom Towers design was already out before Baku announced there building. so i doubt that the size of Kingdom Tower depends on the size of Azerbaijan Tower, more likely it will be the other way around once Baku plans to seriously plan a design. Unless of course Kingdom Tower had several different heights available and can go for the bigger one once Baku announced the 1050m figure.

Nope, the same height 818, was in the plans since before the started the steel section on top. The 828 m final tally was just because from where CTBUH starts measuring in the structure

ok i was wrong, but the statement still stands that the height was kept secret a long time. do not really remember what height it was thought to be for most of the construction. 707m or something like that.

I'm guessing 1001 meters, to make it like Taipei 101. 101 floors for Taipei, 1001 meters for Jeddah!
