Burj Khalifa is a tall tower? Saudi Arabia is about to obliterate its height

Page 1 of 3
#1
The absolutely massive tower is expected to cost above 30 billion (compared with the Khalifas 1.5 billion)

1.6km/1mile high

about twice the height of the Burj Khalifa

And will be called the Kingdom Tower (arabic translation)

the first image isn't to scale and so is completely pointless.

Only the truest of the depressed people, though.

In the current state of affairs in the countries around Saudi Arabia...the last thing I'd do is build a mile high tower.
Either way, typing that made me realise...now it'll be easier to become a member of the mile high club

if it's 818m tall, it was already to scale, it just needed the measurement changing.

whats up with everybody in dubai wanting to build super tall buildings?



Dubai is the United Arab Emirates

that is a different country to Saudi Arabia


The main reason is tourism and having other industries that are not revolved around oil.
