    World's Tallest Tower Planned In Jeddah


    Follarch

    A Chicago based team has drawn up the plans for the World's tallest Skyscraper, named the "Kingdom Tower" to be built in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, a cosmopolitan port city. This tower will be at least 3,281 feet tall, dwarfing the current tallest, the Burj Khalifa by at least 568 feet. It's slated to be the center piece of the coming Kingdom City, which is a new sprawling urban development that would cost about $20 billion.

    Let the BATing begin fellas.

    So now the Oil Sheikdoms are playing "Can you top this?" with all that nice oil money. Can't help but think of Ozymandias.

    i thought it was impossible to build burj khafilah, but this is RIDICULOUS!!! no building can go over 3,000 feet. the air is too thin for people to normally breathe, and the base supports will warp and bring the whole thing down. and dont get me started on that SKYDECK... arabs really have too much money than they can deal with, do they?

    20 Billion dollars on a single structure? That makes no sense! Can't all of these oil rich nations (Especially the US, which I live in) put their money to better use like trying to fight poverty/hunger or something?

    There are serious proportions for really tall towers. Skycity will be 1,000 meters tall! Pyramid City will be 2,000 meters tall!! X-Seed 4000 will be 4,000 meters tall!!!

    As about those oil-based skyscrapers, I love them. Especially when they'll collapse just after the oil run out :evil::D:D

    Kinda looks like the Burj Khalifa...

    Oh well. One day somebody is going to make a skyscraper so tall that they will reach Jupiter without knowing it.

    You guys make me laugh sometimes, I actually think it's kinda interesting. At least my petrodollars are being put toward something constructive. The visualisations look like something straight out of a sci-fi movie... how tall will these guys go in the end?

    Btw, anything that holds an interest to the general community can become a news item. Why wouldn’t this be okay?

    3281 feet? *Puts into converter* Oh I see what they did there.

    It's exactly a kilometre tall.

    Livinginthepast: It's news about a building that could possibly end up in game if someone takes it on, so I believe it's newsworthy.

    And plus, I wasn't requesting a BAT. I just added that as a little joke because i know at least some people will try to make this.

    The deck appears to be significantly lower than the kilometre top. I'd say 500 metres at the most. That's only about 130 metres higher than the observation deck of the Empire State Building.

    The air's fine at 3,281 feet. Aeroplane cabins are generally pressurised to around 6,900 feet (2,100 metres). Problems begin at 3,000 metres, which is a much higher altitude (9,800 feet).
