I am more interested to know what the diagram on the right rapresents. Is it the plot location within the masterplan of the area, or the footprint of the base of the tower?

This is pretty much all we have on this tower right now (except renders of course).

Not sure where you are getting those numbers from. Nobody ever said they will be that long. The longest are 110m according to bauer.

oh sry, had wrong information,... 110m, 1,5 - 1,8m diameter..
i thinked they breakd the record of 120m (petronas towers)

it would be nice to see how long the other piles are ( the smaller one)

maybe i can take pictures from the site when i am in jeddah, but i can not promise anything...

I don't think there are available any numbers according wing piles, but if we take this 3d model and compare the wing piles to the "core" piles we can see they are around 1/3 of the length of the longest piles so probably around 35-40m long.

Six-dimensional core?

I knew that making the world's tallest building would require some extraordinary building techniques, but extending it beyond three dimensions, that was unexpected.

Based on this drawing it seems like the top third of the tower won't even be habitable and the highest floor is only at 2/3rd of the total height, with the rest being just a really tall spire that manages to blend because it tapers with the rest of the building. And I thought the spire one 1WTC was too tall. It looks deceptive but it will still probably have a higher floor than the Burj Khalifa.

What I meant was, that if one took your measurements literally, and multiplied all the lengths you'd listed, the end product would have the unit m^6, implying six spatial dimensions, rather than the three we usually live in.
