The Kingdom Tower in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, will stand a massive 3,280 feet / 1000 metres. The tower will also feature 59 elevators, with five of these elevators to be double decker.

The tower will climb into the clouds and break the previous record held by the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which stands at a mere 828 metres tall.

The creator and leader of the project is Saudi Arabian Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, the wealthiest Arab in the Middle East and he’s poured a whopping $20 billion into the project.

Construction of the tower is set to be completed in 2018 and isn’t a recommended visit for anyone who’s afraid of heights!
