If anyone wanted to, and I am not suggesting this would be an attractive design, would it be possible to build a structure in this KT BK style, leave off the spire, and just build it 2,000 metres tall and let it abruptly end as a stump to gain maximum roof and top floor height?

Provided the fleurs-de-lie base were large enough.

Maybe. I'd sure like to see something like that becoming reality.

It's magnificent that we have these towers like BK and that this one is really being built over 1km.(!) ...But I can't help to feel at the same time, that those extra hundreds of meters, that come from the spires, feel somehow fake or undeserved...

Just an illusion. Plus the raft foundation is in a shallow hole so the crane looks like it is sitting above it

To summarize, the prince is saying that this project also shows that they as investors will invest in their own country regardless of instabilities happening around them.

Technically it already is. But it will have first floors much sooner - most likely in a few months.
