Meet The Kingdom Tower: Mile-high rival to dwarf Dubai’s Burj Khalifa

As professional spider-man Alain Robert and Tom Cruise know all too well, The Burj Khalifa is the tallest tower in the world. But all that may be about to change as Saudi Arabia is rumoured to have greenlit The Kingdom Tower, a mile-high monster to dwarf Dubai’s tower. The building, which will reportedly form part of a nearly $30 billion development in Jeddah, will contain 12 million cubic feet of space, reports Architizer. And at twice the height of the Burj, it will take 12 minutes to reach the top in an elevator. That is, if it really does exist. So far, all reports of the project have been denied by Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill Architecture, despite the firm’s alleged involvement with the building. Smith had a hand in Dubai’s record-breaker, so as far as rumours go, he is the right name to fit the bill. For now, until there is an official confirmation of the ambitious scheme, here is a virtual tour to dazzle your brain - even as a scale model, it boggles the mind.
