Yes it is! Interestingly however, it is not the tallest building that has ever been under construction

Nakheel Tower was under construction. Not rising though, they worked on the piling? ground works? foundation? when it was cancelled. I just remember the images of dead palms when it was dawning on us, that the project was not going to push thru.

Nakheel tower height was meant to be 1000+ m
Kingdom tower height is meant to be 1000+ m

Nobody is sure if that one would be taller than this one, or even if this one will be taller .. but, at least one of these two monsters survived its birth stage and growing up which the other one couldn't

The Nakheel tower was going to be 1400m

The official height was never released but 1200m+ were quite sure. For KT, i don't think it'll be taller than 1050m.
