Writing it twice does not make it correct. You almost gave the correct answer yourself: Cheops Pyramid. The weight of teh Pyramid is estimated to be 6,250.000 tons.

Month 1 , month 2 but its reflected lol ..
But each floor is smaller than the previous one, then for example in the floor 70 they are going to spend less time than in the 32. Then it's going to be faster.

@10064

Look at the levels, those are underground floors. The height to the spire is measured from ground level.

Those aren't really underground, they are actually the first 2 or 3 floors of the tower. They are counted as underground levels because the ground level of the complex around it is at the 3rd or 4th level.
if you look at the pic below, those first 2 or 3 levels are the levels we are talking about. Not underground, Are they?

Will it give finnancial return? Such tower in the middle of nowhere doesn't seem very profitable.

Such words "in the middle of nowhere" doesn't seem very wise

Especially, after all the discussions about it on this thread

Other than being big, the city is quite rich as well. People visiting mecca from all over the world land there first I think, so this tower might get quite some visitors from there as well and get noticed.

that's just how rivers forms, if you have a project close to the sea and close to a river delta, it is bound to look similar.
