Where will Kingdom Tower be in terms of highest occupied floor? Below is a diagram of supertall buildings in order of % of total height which is not occupied. Burj Khalifa is the biggest 'cheater', but still has the highest occupied floor in the world at 585 meter.

This is good overview. Yet, i don't understand what occupiable floor means? Floors can contain offices, apartments, observatories,.... what else?

It would be great if you could provide us some more pics even before it's finished. So, that we could see some of the area along with construction site. Just keep posting....
