How Big is TOO Big? Tallest Building in the World

Only in Dubai right?  Where size matters. 


If this proposed structure is built in Saudia
Arabia, Kingdom Tower will be the tallest building in the world at 3, 281 feet. The
Sears/Willis  Tower is 1,451 feet. One World Trade Center was just crowned 1,776 feet.


Burj Dubai I think currently holds the record and is the tallest man-made structure in the world, at 829.8 m (2,722 ft). 

After 20 months of convincing investors, financing is finally ready for the
Kingdom Tower project. Talal Al Maiman, CEO of Kingdom Real Estate Development Co. said in an
interview in Shanghai that every detail about financing was discussed with investors and
currently the project can move forward as there are no financial obstacles to it.

Kingdom Tower in Jeddah will be the world’s tallest skyscraper with a height of
1,007 meter (3 303.8 feet). It will be the first building to reach the height of 1
kilometer.

Although no exact completion date
was given, the Kingdom Tower might be completed as early as 2017, and it will have more than 200
floors, with the highest deck observation in the world on the 157th level.
