When this building is completed will it be the tallest or at least among the tallest in the world?

Basically, the tallest building and the tallest free standing structure titles this tower will have them for sure

However, the tallest non-free standing structure title might go to Dubai Creek Tower

Everyone is making comparisons everywhere, I don't get why anyone complains about dubai creek tower's comparisons on its thread but people do here, you either complain on both or any

your sentence doesn't make much sense but anyways comparisons are good if it ends with 2 or 3 posts, the problem is some comparisons drag on forever and take away from the focus of the project at hand, this thread always is affected with such comparisons, never ending debates while in other threads it seems to end shortly.

Yeah but Saudi as a tourist is not appealing for western travelers as Dubai is, honestly I am terrified of going to that place even though I would like to ... but no .. so scary .. no alcohol, no bars, no music, no cinemas, western women cant even be free or roam in their normal clothes, if you are gay you might get thrown off a building or killed, if you anger someone without knowing you will be jailed or leave the country.

Hope it changes and they become more permissive if they want an afflux of travelers from all over the world, because once this beauty of a building gets built I would love to see it. But as it is I wouldn't come.

So for me .. nope.


I understand your concerns

Take a look at the red sea project, you will find what you seek for I promise.

Not to drag this further but resorts are found everywhere ... nothing special .. If I will visit Saudi Arabia it would be for its culture and history not its resorts. I just hope one day everyone can visit it and check all its sites and cities.

I also have just noticed looking at fayzoon's diagram (thanks for updating it!) that after 3 more floors the core will reach a new mechanical floor. As the previous ones took around 1.5 months (I'm just talking from memory) to build them because of the height change, I do not expect to reach the end of the year with a level higher than the 73rd. (294m).

Actually, there is still a possibility that it will reach 300 m high by the end of 2017 since we still have 4 months but, it highly depends on the speed in the next few months.

But, the more interesting question is how high it will be by the end of 2018?
500 m? Maybe possible and only if the speed increase a bit
