1600m is not the final height. The tower will be arround 1000m to 1100m tall.

They could at least get the 1,250 foot figure drawn to the right point of the ESB, sheesh ;p. Yeah I do recall 1,600m for KT was the old design but due to design logistics and money it was downscaled. But still, a tower that's between 1,000-1,100 meters is fine by me!

If they are the lift wells this is massive !!!!

But if they are the floor plans,

They are worker platforms for the formwork system, which isn't necessarily the height of the floor.

From the Wikipedia page:
In May 2008, soil testing in the area cast doubt over whether the proposed location could support a skyscraper of the proposed one mile height, and MEED reported that the project had been scaled back, making it "up to 500 metres (1,640 ft) shorter."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kingdom_Tower

The picture is also from April the 12th 2011.

Munwon, please spare us your useless invective.

I for one welcome differing opinions. Otherwise, this place grows dull.
