Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal, head of Kingdom Holding Company recently gave his approval for construction of what will be the world’s tallest man-made, one mile up structure: the Kingdom Tower.
The Kingdom Tower designed by Adrian Smith, will be built in Saudi Arabia’s city of Jeddah. The tower will be one mile up and include 12 million cubic feet of space, several stories of office space, an hotel and residential space.
Right, there’s a lift in this building, which will take about 12-minutes to reach the top from the bottom. What if you’ve reached the bottom of the building ready to go home just to realize you left your phone up there.
