If everything goes right it'll reach level 60+ without a problem. Maybe even 70+.

It will hold the record of the tallest building for a long time without any doubts, the one in Dubai is just a high observation deck. Even if it's taller it won't be counted a building or even a free standing structure

and BTW, I really doubt it will be more than 1000 meters high

for sure it's over 826m since they said it will be taller than BK and we are just assuming that it will be also taller than JT since it does not make sense to build a tower taller than BK but shorter than JT
