Saudi Arabia is world's largest skyscraper, Kingdom Tower

If you have any questions, whether we ever be towers life in the cities, we have seen in science fiction, the Kingdom Tower should seal the deal.

Kingdom tower are often called "the gateway to Mecca," built in Saudi Arabia, Jeddah, a port city on the Red Sea. When it is completed, Kingdom tower stands on 3,281 feet high, that is Burj Khalifa, the world's current largest building 568 metres higher than of Dubai. At one point, Kingdom wanted the designers Tower rise one mile high ground, but tests aufgedeckten the it not a good idea.

As you can see from the images of CG, it is an impressive "sky terrace" is located in the 157th floor that looks like a landing pad for futuristic flying vehicles have. Within this massive mega skyscraper a four seasons hotel, upscale office space, luxury condominiums and 59 lifts are also. This elevator travels at a fast rate of 33 feet per second (22 miles an hour).

All this at a cost of 20 billion. I wonder how long it will take before huge assorted buildings such as Kingdom Tower of normal size. If we really high towers want mile, shrimp in the future will look then like Kingdom Tower, the Sears Tower, and others of its kind today mega skyscrapers.
