I know that this isn't the place to post this but, If the renders are right then kingdom tower will not be the tallest structure in the world.
(the left render is the top of the tower which is way higher than burj khalifa.)

No the picture just looks like that, almost all renders look slightly bigger than normal, but it will be close.

It doesn't make sense for Emaar to build a tower that is just taller than burj Khalifa and still shorter than 1000m Plus years back Emaar did have a plan for a 1000m+ tower on this same spot and now it's back

Don't worry Jeddah tower will be the tallest for a good period of time before Dubai take back the title and it doesn't really matter anyways since all Gulf is like one in the end

Your are right!. But it doesn't make sense to build it a little taller than Burj Khalifah I think they will aim to build it the tallest. And Plus did you see that Spire? Damn things like 1wtc's spire on steroids...

Look At It!!

I think they're keeping the height a secret because if they say the height then Jeddah will make its tower even taller.

either way, can you imagine being at the top floor, hundreds of metres above the ground and seeing another building, on a pretty much similar level. mind boggles
