Stuff like this has Been done since the 1920s-1930s American skyscraper Building boom. And was done at the Chrysler building too by erecting a secret 185 foot spire right before topping out.

article below

but in this case tho u can roughly estimate the final height once the building is well under way, because of the Pyramid shape and its Termination point based on the angles. unless they decide to do several floors with the exact same width or add a crazy pole spire on top.
Of course! now it seems obvious thanks!

Judging by the economic situation in Saudi Arabia this tower might just be put on hold or even canceled.
