What building is the tallest skyscraper in the world?

1 Answer

At a kilometer high — that’s 3,280 feet — The Kingdom Tower will top the current tallest building, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, by 568 feet. Its 5.7 million sq. ft. interior will house a Four Seasons hotel, apartments, and the world’s highest observation deck.

World's Tallest Skyscrapers: 
1 Kingdom Tower 1000 m Jeddah
2 Burj Khalifa 828 m Dubai
3 Taipei 101 509 m Taipei
4 Shanghai World Financial Center 492 m Shanghai
5 International Commerce Centre 484 m Hong Kong
6 Petronas Tower 1 452 m Kuala Lumpur
7 Petronas Tower 2 452 m Kuala Lumpur
8 Nanjing Greenland Financial Center 450 m Nanjing
9 Willis Tower 442 m Chicago
10 Guangzhou International Finance Center 438 m Guangzhou
11 Jin Mao Tower 421 m Shanghai
12 Two International Finance Centre 415 m Hong Kong
13 Trump International Hotel & Tower 415 m Chicago
14 CITIC Plaza 391 m Guangzhou
15 Shun Hing Square 384 m Shenzhen
16 Empire State Building 381 m New York City

"The Kingdom Tower's numbers are impressive. The building itself will take a staggering $1.2 billion to build, "while the cost of the entire Kingdom City project is anticipated to be $20 billion," said AS+GG. The massive 3,280-foot spire will house a 5.7 million square feet (530,000 square meters) space and will beat the Burj by "at least 568 feet" (173 meter). It will have a Four Seasons hotel, a Four Seasons apartment area, office space, luxury condos and the world's highest observatory."
