but a section drawing is a reliable source for us to change the title. if this is taller,they will not release the final height anyway until this tower is already half way up.

I've got nothing against spires being counted. That would also be a losing battle.

Does anyone know if there will be a web cam set up so we can view this building while it is being constructed?

So was I right or wrong saying that the structure is technically only taller because of it's spire, or what?

By the way is there was no spire on the Jeddah Kingdom tower the BURJ would still be the the compatibly tall. Level (floor) 167 finishes at 670.00m on he kingdom tower, Level (Floor) 163 finishes at 584.500 m on the burj khalifa.

I can imagine what floor 240 all the way at the top of the spire would be like: very cramped

You could fit one aircon unit, I guess...
Everyone knows 100% of the building needs to be usable, with 0% aesthetic structure whatsoever. Otherwise, whoever built it is vain and wasted their money, right?

It could go either way. There's so little information released about the actual purpose of Kingdom City that whether it is a mere vanity project or a genius plan to make Saudi Arabia the world's leading economy is as good as anybody's guess.
