Maybe. I'd sure like to see something like that becoming reality.

It's magnificent that we have these towers like BK and that this one is really being built over 1km.(!) ...But I can't help to feel at the same time, that those extra hundreds of meters, that come from the spires, feel somehow fake or undeserved...

Just an illusion. Plus the raft foundation is in a shallow hole so the crane looks like it is sitting above it

To summarize, the prince is saying that this project also shows that they as investors will invest in their own country regardless of instabilities happening around them.

Technically it already is. But it will have first floors much sooner - most likely in a few months.
