He must be counting "floors" up to the tip of the spire for KT. No surprise they want to make their tower "look" bigger. According to ctbuh both towers have pretty much same amount of floors (163 and 167 for burj and kt respectively). When I counted floors from the 3d model (including all mech floors) I got even few less. Also Adrian Smith told in the interview that all floors in kt will be 1m taller than in burj so even though the tower is taller it should have rather similar amount of floors. Of course we can always assume that the old plans are outdated and amount of floors is indeed bigger but then rough calculation tells me that 50 more floors would mean 20% in height increase. So the tower would be freaking 1200m tall While not impossible, veeeeery unlikely

Oh and coincidentally 50floors equals exactly to the length of the kt spire above last mech floor

floors = levels, regardless of their use, or lack of it. 50 more for 200 meters more, sounds about right.

Make whatever you like from it. But IMO it's very unlikely this tower gets 200m more. Plus, the interview is quite old and we know pretty much for certain the tower was 1000m then.

We know the situation of women in Saudi Arabia is bad already, and we don't get our news from Hollywood or late night shows but from the mouths of Saudi women themselves. Here is video clip of a Saudi woman's speech, straight from the horses' mouth https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z_yogQfWgv4

Hell, from that render it looks like it will be at least something around 1300m high
Wow, 1300 Meters Patrykus, Our SSC Family Friend, Are You Sure You didn't say more than 4 Years Ago In This Post " 200 Meters More " ??

Just trying to say that Video of Adrian Smith I posted is Only 2 Years old, But Yes , Its getting Old , But the Tower is Still the same and the Same Height as it is Today Over 1,000 Meters at 3,280 Feet will be the Height of the Kingdom Tower in 2020 IMO , Our SSC Family Friends

Yeah that was this render I was commenting IN 2009 not long after they stopped calling it the mile high tower and nobody knew even remotely what the hight might be This render is also great example that it is a common practice to count "fake" floors/levels to the very tip of the tower.




But later we've seen blueprints of 1007m tower and the interview is from that period of time so there is no way Sir Adrian was talking about 1200m tower back then.

BTW, what did I said in the summer, about the piling completing not before the end of the year, and not in October as everyone was raving about?

The point of the discussion that you missed apparently Guys asked if it is possible the kingdom tower getting 50 more regular habitable floors because those are the floors listed everywhere. Check the ctbuh. Those towers have the same amount of counted floors. The point was that if kt had 50 more habitable floors it would be much taller than we thought that's why some got so intrigued by it and that's also why your answer is out of context since kt might have 50 floors than burj but those are not floors that will be listed in official listings.

i don't think we will see much more floors, we might get a building in the end that is even taller maybe 1050m or 1080m, because they probably like burj khalifa want to keep the final height a secret until as late as possible, but then it may only be a longer empty spire.

That's also what I'm expecting here.

Rody seems to be exited about December news but I don't believe we can expect anything over 1100m.
