Not necessarily, there is a rather high chance they will keep the final height a secret until the tower is risen quite high, so other projects cannot snatch the title only few years after it is complete. Burj Khalifa was thought to be only a bit over 700m for a long time

The steel spire tip will probably be assembled inside the concrete spire and then raised upwards once the concrete section is completed

These plans don't seem to be final yet. Originally they had in mind to build the concrete structure up to 900 meters and finish it off with steel. But that would be really surprising, so at this time we can only speculate what they will do

That's very unlikely, unless they put a round sticky spire at the top similar to the Burj. But I guess they won't

Why? This is just a 650m building with a 330 meter supertall spire on top.
1/3 of this building is a spire. The ultimate definition of

No. Up the spire it's stairs and ladders, I'm quite sure. Maintainance guys will have superhuman endurance.

If they have a Hart Attack 200 meters up the stairs they are screwed.

Supertall classification isn't going to change by itself. It should start with places like this forum. If people start ranking buildings by roof height instead of spire height, step by step architectural firms will adopt it and sooner or later it will take over the industry. It's almost turning into a bit of a problem since so many developers are now using their artificial "spire height" as a marketing tool for new supertalls, see Ping An and One World Trade Centre. Remember, the Sears Tower is still taller than One World!

But keep in mind that the roof height doesn't work very good at some towers. The official height should say like it is at the moment.
