He bought an Airbus A380, but soon before the delivery, he sold it to someone else at a very handsome price. With instant delivery to the new costumer.

In 21 century, all megatalls are in Asia. That's amazing. Although they aren't very important (economy, science, technical, human... are more important) but they look impressive.

I wonder if this will stay the tallest until 2030 (100 years since the first supertall skyscraper, the Chrysler Building).
Chrysler building: 1930, 1 year as tallest
Empire State Building: 1931, 41 years as tallest (!)
1WTC: 1972, 2 years as tallest
Sears Tower: 1974, 24 years as tallest
Petronas Towers: 1998, 7 years as tallest
Taipei 101: 2003, 7 years as tallest
Burj Khalifa: 2010, 4 years so far, 9 years total?
Kingdom Tower: ~2019, 11 years needed to be tallest 100 years after Chrysler.

If Broad Group get round to building their megatall(s), then it is possible that Kingdom Tower could miss out completely, however based on the progress of J97 so far, who knows.

I admit it. That is truth about Seoul supertall project. I can't deny it.

Wow, really! The Empire State Building held the tallest for 41 YEARS.
That title will probably never be broken because how fast they are building towers all over the world to beat the latest tower height. I don't see this trend stopping in my lifetime.

I don't think KT will hold the title as WTB until 2030. there are chances the next WTB will be U/C before 2020 already i think.

There are several possible candidates for next wts. Even Bin Talal himself is planning another big tower to beat himself Or so he claims at least. Next one could be Burj Mubarak Al-Kabir. I read the news very recently the Silk City project where it is going to be located is still not dead and slowly progressing. Nakheel Tower would be another one should the firm behind it decide it's again strong enough to try with it. And lastly there is Azerbaijan Tower. Have little hope for that last one but who knows, maybe they will surprise us after all

So there are at least 4 potential towers that could beat the kingdom tower before 2030

I was using the years from this wiki page, not sure why it is 2003 there rather than 2004.
Also, apparently I can't count!

bin talal would not start or even propose a tower, more than concepts, before kingdom tower is done i think, so it will still be a while if anything comes out of that.

burj mubarak probably isn't more likely that Qingdao Skycity being able to get started. i havn't heard the news, but i think it seems very unlikely for it to come back, however it would be amazing to see it coming back, it basically had a roof height up at 1000m. if they want to get taller than kingdom tower they would need to increase their building however.

nakheel tower coming back would be a dream. with dubai having such a come back and even building a 660m+ tower again, it doesn't even seem that unlikely that they try to give it another try, but really without any news this is just wild guessing as for any other dead project to come back.

Azerbaijan Tower still seems so unlikely to me, it really is hard to say if they can do it or just do it to get media attention for their project. the design is not by a big architectural firm and it seems rather unlikely. but they just keep saying stuff and assuring us that they plan to build this tower.

china is putting out a lot of towers that seem to get taller and taller by the year, with in 2008 SWFC and 2010 3 other ~450m buildings being finished. with the next wave 450m buildings seem to become a normal height for B Tier cities and 600m buildings are now coming for the big cities, starting with Shanghai Tower and CTF(although a bit smaller) nearly topped out and Ping An, Goldin Finance on the rise. Now we seem to get more proposals that are getting close to 700m or are even taller, Century Plaza is even under construction already. if this trend continues and in one wave we get a tower that is really standing out of the others, which is likely since getting the world's tallest title adds a lot of prestige, i can see a proposal coming up that has good chances to get build.
