The NEW Tallest Building In The World.

The record for the world’s tallest tower is set to be broken yet again… The new skyscraper will measure one kilometer high and will be located in Saudi Arabia.  The tower will outdo Gulf neighbor Dubai, which inaugurated its own record-breaking skyscraper the 828m Burj Khalifa less than two years ago.  The Saudis awarded a more than $1 billion contract for a spire, to be named the Kingdom Tower.  It will have a Four Seasons hotel, serviced apartments, luxury condominiums and offices, encompassing, in all, about half a million square metres.  The Saudi construction giant is owned by the family of Osama bin Laden. The family disavowed the slain al-Qaeda terror group leader years ago.  The tower, designed by Chicago-based Adrian Smith & Gordon Gill Architecture, is the first phase of the planned Kingdom City, a sprawling, $20 billion, two-square mile urban development project first announced in 2008.
