How High Is Too High ?

Saudia Arabia’s Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal, the despotic nation’s construction czar, has just approved the construction of the world’s tallest building in the coastal city of Jeddah. The “Kingdom Tower”, designed by architect Adrian Smith, will be a full mile high at 5,280 feet. The skyscraper’s 12 million square feet of space will house apartments, hotels and office space.

The “Kingdom Tower” will dwarf the world’s current record holder, the “Burj Khalifa” in Dubai, by nearly half a mile.
