I estimated it to be 210m, and actually made it slightly smaller than it should look just to be conservative.

Leadenhall building(the tall slanted one) is 225m.

You can just click "like" - for even better appreciation of it, and keeping the thread clean from meaninglessness and multiple image copies on the same page.

I just hope they don't build a taller building right beside this...to go to so much trouble and have your view blocked out !

Wow, London is short. London needs to get itself together, it's 2017. It needs more supertalls or at least a megatall.

I know this is a skyscraper forum, but if you can't appreciate that London has one of the more attractive historical cityscapes in the world that they deliberately prevent from being overshadowed by high-rises then you probably need to reassess your ideas of beauty and the successful urban landscape. Not every city needs to look the same, and the ****-measuring contest you aspire to is probably best left to places with less history intact.

their ideas are exactly that, theirs. stop trying to perpetuate societal conventions of inherently subjectively ideas with your whitewashed influence of nimby-ism.

They have a difficulty understanding history, and culture so don't get offended. Even when Middle Easterner's come to Europe they only comprehend shopping malls, and shopping.

Any way even though Shard is shorter it'll always be worth more than this tower when finished. Jeddah Tower will never reach the value of a square foot that Shard is worth in a million years so good job to the Qataris who built it.

Not a childish racism thread. If you hate the tower that this thread is about or where it is located, then you can get out

For some time I nearly thought this was a London thread...just realized it's actually about Jeddah Tower. Let's please stop the off topic posts.

How far are we to surpassing the next WTB title holder who held the title for 17 years?

That is impressive, it makes the construction speed seem not as slow. ^

Level 60 (242m) should be past before the end of the year.
