It needs to be at least taller than the nakheel tower and the burj Mubarak al kabir but it would be cool to see it reach a mile

Hi all.

I agree that a 1000 meter design will be great. I like the SOM vision - while I personally like the complexity of the Burj Dubai more the SOM design is elegant in its simplicity. I do hope we get a race for the WTS between this, the Nakheel tower, and the Muburak tower - would be great.

Lets face it 1600 meters would be better.

I'd rather see some of f.e 400-500m instead of one, giant structure. Imo it could cause mess in all-vision

I take it your not a fan of the Burj Dubai then and would rather see it being replaced by several 400m towers, which imo, wouldn't quite have the same effect.

Somehow I agree with Skullcrusher. I'm with a 1000+km, but it's still a good thing that the kingdom tower is only a part of kingdom city, which is full of 300-400 buildings. Can you imagin if the kingdom tower was standing there alone!

I wasn't against the idea of a visionary cluster of 400m towers, just that it needs the centerpiece megatall surrounded by shorter but still large buildings.

But that's exactly what it was, a concept tower. You or me could do the same and come up with a 10km high tower, make a render for it and show it off

Yes, it is a Saudi company owned by relatives of Osama bin Laden, but he cut ties with them ages ago. They build lots of things.
