All great buildings take inspiration from something.

You could even argue that Kingdom Tower is a rip off of the Ryugyong Hotel since that building started the jagged glass three-winged tapering trend.

Good to see in closer detail of the buildings to surround Kingdom Tower, thank you!

Those buildings could also be supertalls comparing the heights with that mosque

Nice to see that work is actually going on Kingdom tower, 1km tall tower will be surely much much tall.

Even nicer in my opinion, is that there will be other buildings of some height around the Kingdom Center. It would look very lonely and out of place otherwise.

How so? Just because there are no buildings above 600m in the United States? The only thing that proves is that American businesses spend their money sensibly and that we have space to build without having to go up! There's certainly nothing bad about that.

No! I think it's simply because Sky City is in the graphic

They've already been proven wrong at this point, the tower is properly under construction. But I'm sure they'll eventually be back for round 2 with the usual collection of colorful commentary on oil money, tower of babel, how pointless it is, blahblahblah..

I think it is only used as a reference. So it's nothing weird about this graphic.
