That's true, mountain climbers have this problem as well. It may take up to several days to get accustomed to a radical height change

Your Right Kanto, Our SSC Family Friend, I didn't think about that, The Construction Workers at 3,000 feet, wow , what about the Heat , over 100 degrees, any of them could be like " Rainman " the movie, the same happen back when they were building the Hoover Dam, over 100 men died when it was built, Heat was bad too and many died then when safety wasn't strict then I still say around 2021 or 2022 , The Kingdom Tower will be completed IMO , I could be wrong !!

What it actually say is "It commonly occurs above 2,400 meters". 1500m is absolute minimum for few people. I was climbing 1700m mountains and I couldn't feel any difference in breathing.

Anyway this problem is irrelevant to this tower as top occupied floors most likely won't be much above 600m. So yeah there is no way you can feel anything different at top apartments other that it can be a little bit colder than at the base. So actually, considering the harsh climate of the area, height makes it more comfortable to live in.

3,000 feet is very high for a building, but it's not very high to get Altitude Sickness. I mean most climbers don't start to feel it until they get to around 18,000 feet. I've been on many Mountains in the 10,000 to 11,000 feet elevation and didn't feel anything in terms of Altitude Sickness.

Well, then everything should be OK. I'm not much of a traveler so I don't have experience with this stuff
