1139.4768m
OMFG
If this gets true it will be amazing for two reasons:
First about 130m taller then expected!
Second: next worlds tallest building must be 1140m+
...i think i need liquid aspirin and a beer now

Yes! And that is good news.
I seemed that construction was delayed the last weeks.
But I think it was some logical step in the total story.
Now tings will really go up fast, I hope...
Could that be because they reached the floors 15 and 16, which seem in the diagram to be technical ones? At least they seem higher than the standard ones.

the official floor count will be just 170 floors because these are occupied, all the "floors" above don't count. Burj Khalifa also has technical floors above the last official floor. In total it has 189 floors i believe but these floors also don't count.


and we'll see if it really rises above 1100m. Nothing is official until now.

I think they had to wait for the structure to "sink" in the soil. It is a lot of weight already and it is better to watch how the soil moves and gets compressed so they could inject some chemicals in the soil to stabilize it.

Hm i think they not exceed 1050m tall. There is no any reason to do that, when tower will be finished they gain some world records, fame and a lot of tourists
I guess within next 5-10 years nobody will not build taller building of course without Saudi Arabia because they can beat only themselves

Maybe it has to do with the technical floors, I don't know for sure.
More technical area's will come at higher parts of the building, so we will see by then.

Anyway, I seems now they have the final tower cranes in position.
So: let's roll...

by your definition that post qualifies for deletion. But IMHO everyone should relax, people are excited about the building and are having a little fun with the thread.

If they stated 1139m I might have believed it, but saying it will the the height of the shard combined with the burj sounds like they are talking out of their butts tbh. I hope I am weong though

Most likely: Yes.
This was the same with the area around Burj Khalifa.

Kingdom Tower takes longest time to build (completion 2018), so lower buildings can start 2015, 2016 or 2017 to reach same completion in 2018.
Much will be under development now, others parts in final design stage.

I remember when we all tried to guess the final height of the KT. My guess was very close to the number in the quote!

It is (1000m+), I said it before but the thread title is still at 1007 I really don't know why it can't be changed even when 1000m+ is more accurate so far ..
