The only identical "look" to BK is the basic triangular shape.
And this shape is not unique at all. Look at CN tower and many others.


Seeing BK rising was quite exciting.
KT is even more spectacular.

The final height and exact floor amount are still secret.
So: nobody outside the project knows for sure.


Most likely it will be a mechanical / utility floor.

Don't we have some clear images of the basement under construction and that curved structure that is being done in the first floors?

Yes and No.


In the past years, many renders have passed on this forum, showing (parts of) the podium and lower floor (roads to and from JT, and the lobby).
Details are different each time.


How it will look exactly when finished: have a few years patience...

Not really, BK was way more exciting, structurally they are very similar plus BK rose much faster

I don't see any orange netting. Is that because they're not doing electrical/plumbing work yet, or are the safety precautions just different during this construction?

It seems that there's a competition between KSA and UAE to build the tallest building in the world.

I love this kind of competition! I hope we'll see a 2 km high megatall soon!

The one in Dubai is a structure not a building. So this one will be the tallest building for sure

But, the competition here is about the structural height, which the new tower in Dubai has a much higher chance of winning
