Form of the KT is essencial limit for changing height during construction. Addign height to burj khalifa was like stacking more cans on top of the structure, like that

You can't do the same with KT. The only way it could be taller is if the taller design is chosen already and kept in secret. Also it is worth to remember than burj kahlife didn't ended 1km because of the crazy proportions it would have and KT having similar base to BK is already 1km tall and we are talking about making it even taller.

Agree!! As far as protection, nothing beats a real mountain. I lived about 2 miles from Raven rock, or as most people know it as the underground pentagon. There is only one way in and one way out. Heavily guarded from the main road approx 1/4 mile away and goes dozens of floors deep. I don't care what you got or what your flying, there is no way your getting inside this complex This btw, is where the president will be hanging out during any sort of chemical attack

This is called a worthwhile effort.

i suggest you use google earth though, it has a time function and you can look at the newest photo from april 2013, which has stuff on site already. not much though


not sure if that in the middle is the actual outline for the core. the size and shape seems to be about right.

i just realize this project will really start from scratch. with just an empty space to begin with. it will be amazing to see the rise of greenery and oasis in the middle of desert.

You can also see a hexagonal structure as a fence surrounding the core.
If we can only have some aereal shots of the area, it'll be great!!
