Yes it is. I think in a few decades it could be buildable.

well hopefully they will build it in a very appropriate place in the world. and have a very good design because it would be a huge milestone to reach a mile tall.

well considering the burj dubai started work in 2003 ( ground work's) and will be completed sometime in 2010. so i'd say the Kingdom tower would take at least 9 years give or take a few. but you also have considered delays, which most likely will happen

Yep, I agree, we're looking at a decade here at the very least no doubt.

One thing is for sure, Burj Dubai will have a long reign at the top no-matter what comes along over the next few years..
