A Look at Saudi Arabia’s Mile-High Skyscraper

This image is obviously truncated because our blog cannot handle the size and majesty of Saudi Arabia’s $26 billion, mile-high Kingdom Tower. Construction on the massive spire that is expected to hold 80,000 people has yet to begin, but as you can see (or rather will see when you read on below), just the silhouette cut by the tower is impressive by itself. While the other buildings in the chart show familiar architectural flares, in the The Daily’s size chart, Kingdom Tower is just a giant pink swath slicing the page.
