The new tower in dubai : THE TOWER , Will not get the title of world tallest building ..
i asked skyscrapercenter :

me : i wanna ask about Jeddah tower which will be the tallest building in the world ..

Dubai is now planning to build a building called THE TOWER and i think it will be taller than jeddah tower..

IF they finished is the tower will be on the 100 tallest buildings list in the world ? and get the title of worlds tallest tower on the world ? or not like Tokyo skytree ? ... THANKS ! ..

skyscrapercenter : We already have the new project in Dubai on our database: http://skyscrapercenter.com/building/iconic-tower/23572 and based on CTBUH Height Criteria it would not qualify as a building so would not get the title of World’s Tallest Building.

Consider that The Tower has a completed height taller than Jeddah Tower

It will be the tallest supported Tower, the tallest Tower and the tallest human-built structure. (each of these groups is a subset of the other)

but will not be the tallest freestanding structure (not free-standing), nor the tallest building (not a building)

I believe the records it will have will be:
Tallest human-built structure
Highest Occupied floor
Highest Observation Deck
And maybe more. I didn't type anything else because i'm not that great in these things.

None. It will be kept in secret for a few years.

I just noticed something... If KT's observation deck be at 637meters, then it will be the third highest. First will be the tower, Second will be Dubai One and third will be KT.
