Construction works are set to begin on April 27 for the highest skyscraper in the world in Jeddah, west of Saudi Arabia.
Nicknamed “Kingdom Tower,” the building is planned to measure at least 1000 meters (1 km) in height and will thus be taller than the current World Guinness record holder Burj Khalifa in Dubaï (829 meters).
The tower is expected to have 200 stories and will be served by 56 elevators.
A budget of $1.2 billion is dedicated to the project. It is estimated that the construction will last for 63 months.
