Relax, regular 'tourist' visas have been on the cards for a while. Should be available sometime this year, 2018, for anyone to visit. The only restriction that I imagine will remain is non-Muslims will not be allowed in Makkah where the Abraj al Bait Clock Tower is.

Update on Saudi city of Jeddah

"As of late 2017, the tower was 252 meters high and already had broad views of the kingdom, according to CNN, which released a video capturing the construction site last week. Based in Jeddah Economic City, the Jeddah Tower is planned to stand at 1,000 meters, surpassing the world's current tallest tower, Dubai's Burj Khalifa, by 72 meters. This comes as part of the Jeddah Economic City project, a commercial and residential project that will feature homes, hotels, offices, along with touristic sites."

Let's see... 1,000 meters is 72 more than 828 meters. Makes sense to me.
