It's great that this building also has a hotel.............which is needed especially during Hajj season with massive influx of people and they need a place to stay.

We wrote 800m+ because we don't the exact final height that's why but knowing the stem width to be 30m and according to renders we got we can say that the height of THE TOWER will be 1100m

Here you go an article posted about this tower a while back .. they might be wrong IDK

Quote:
The Tower – as it is currently called – will have just 18 to 20 usable floors located in the bulb near the summit, while the 30 metre-wide elongated stem which makes up most of the length of the building will hold nothing but elevator shafts. The bulb will contain a boutique hotel and floors dedicated to observation decks with gardens, restaurants and function rooms.

most of the pictures we have of models or renders feature perspective though, so hard to get any close estimate

Strangely, the Floor plates haven't slowed down, just the jumps have.
