No.
The concrete core of BK reaches up to above 600 m, too.

The core of JT ends just above the outside plaform (so, about 640 m).

But the concrete spire goes up to 950 meters... On the BK it seems the last concrete elements just bit higher than 700 meters, so it is a huge difference

And btw what is the real name now? JT or KT?

It's so unclear, at first it was KT, but now it changed to JT.

at the end I think it might be called Jeddah's Kingdom Tower

I would say that the final name will glorify Al-Walid ben Talal ben Abdelaziz Al Saoud !
Burj Duba´ was renamed Burj Khalifa in honor of Cheikh Khalifa ben Zayed Al Nahyane.

That spam post needs to be removed, it has some pretty bad information in it.

The concrete section of the BK ends at 595.70 meters.
It's steel above that point.

Cheers

We're talking about the Core, not concrete.

KT has the highest outdoor observation deck





They count the spire on One World Trade Center as part of the total 1,776 ft height so Kingdom Tower will be 3,307 ft (1,008 m) .

KT is going to be the tallest building on the planet if it is higher than BK so if you want to talk cores only then start a cores thread.

Maybe you should bugger off if you can't take a simple comparison without throwing a fit. Calm down or log off.

Dude, we're not talking about other buildings, we're talking about a piece of KT and BK so it is related to this thread.
we are also here to Get news about the progress and question about somethings of the Building. Not say that the height is 1KM and get some Updates and leave.
