UPDATE on the tallest building in the WORLD under construction



Known as Kingdom Tower this will be the world's tallest skyscraper will be 3,300 ft. and 170-stories.   The building is currently under construction in Jedda Saudi Arabia, at 26-floors.  When completed in 2018 the structure will supplant the Burj Khalifa (2722 ft), as the tallest building in the world.   Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill Architecture, a Chicago-based firm, created the design for the Kingdom Tower.

Of course this will all be dwarfed if the previous posting for a mega-tall tower is funded and ever moves beyond the stage of proposal.

We've been tracking this building for a while before construction began.  It has been interesting the varying height and design proposals along the way.


That's over 1k.

  1. I've posted on the building myself. Not as informative as you, however.
