There was sandstorm Riyadh the other day, does this happen in Jeddah as well? and how tall are the storm walls, only if they're less than 1km tall the tower can survive.

Not to worry they need only one ZPM to power the shield when the tower is build, then there will be no problems with the sand storms

I think it would look much better if they includes supertalls around it.

Its too early to judge. After all these images are renders. There is no way of knowing that this is the actual scale.
