The one tower is clearly over 300m ... almost hits the 400m mark.
There is also a second one which is almost the same height.
Correct me if i'm wrong ... But the surroundings of the Jeddah Tower are no actual designs or drafts.
The picture just gives an idea how the Area could look like.

Well, this picture is exactly a draft of how the surrounding area will look like. Definitely we cannot call it a design. It's rather a random placement of random shapes. Few people care about this multitude of towers yet.

The earlier master plans show only 2 avenues on the place of what nowadays looks to be something else: http://wikimapia.org/#lat=21.734&lon=39.0845&z=19

Saudi Arabia's 1km Jeddah Tower over 20% complete
15 Mar 2016


The skyscraper has reached the 37th floor with two more years to completion, the developer said.
15 March 2016

Saudi Arabia's 1km Jeddah Tower, which will be the world's tallest building when it opens in 2018, is now over a fifth complete, the developer behind the skyscraper said on Tuesday.

Kingdom Holding, which owns a third of developer Jeddah Economic Company (JEC) said in a press release that the tower had reached the 37th floor.

While JEC, whose chairman is Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, has not revealed officially how many habitable floors the tower will reach, the Chicago-based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat estimated it will be 167 floors tall when it is completed in 2018, meaning the tower is 22 percent complete with two years to go.

The announcement comes as JEC marked the establishment of the Alinma Jeddah Economic City Fund, which was set up by the developer after it secured sharia-compliant financing of 3.6 billion riyals ($959.9 million) from Alinma Bank last December to fund the project.

"With financing in place, we are now on our way to achieve our set goals and to complete building Jeddah Tower and the infrastructure of Jeddah Economic City as per the five year plan developed by Jeddah Economic Company," Mounib Hammoud, CEO of Jeddah Economic Company, was quoted as saying in the press release.

Jeddah Tower, which will overtake the 830 metre Burj Khalifa in Dubai as the world's tallest tower when it is officially launched, will have a gross floor area of 245,000 square metres and include offices, a 200-room Four Seasons Hotel, 121 serviced apartments and 360 residential apartments, Reuters reported in May 2015.

In addition to Kingdom Holding, Jeddah-based Abrar Holding owns 33.4 percent of JEC, while Saudi Binladin Group, who is the main contractor on the tower, and Kilaa Jeddah Company own about 16.6 percent each.
