Ha! The Kingdom Tower wins by far against the Burj Khalifa in every statistical category apart from the elevator total - what a tower!

In the future, when the world will be filled with superskyscrapers over 1km high, they will study in history books that "the first tower to exceed 1km high was the Kingdom tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia".

As of 6 A.M. local time, it is still crystal clear (daylight now)! It's amazing - it took them, what, 3 weeks to notice and to clean that camera??

Wish so much this tower was being built in Dubai. Instead of building 2 700 meter plus buildings on both ends in Dubai they should have combined the cost of both and it would have Ben enough to make a tower a few hundred feet taller than the kingdom tower.
