So does anyone know the final confirmed height...it would seem various posts and other websites all say different things.
Is it a "mile high" tower or 1km???

Either way it's still amazing

The original project was a mile high tower, but soil testing showed that it wasn't possible.
The final height is unknown, like for Burj Khalifa. We just know that Kingdom Tower will be 1000m+ tall

These pictures are utterly fantastic! The building is already huge, and I think this is the tallest structure in that area.

Thank you for this journey!

The building is going up faster than it takes for the images to load.
