jeddah tower a 1,000 meter giant set to dethrone burj khalifa as the world’s tallest building
In the world of towering structures, a new giant is rising to overshadow the famous Burj Khalifa. A really tall tower is being built in Saudi Arabia called the Jeddah Tower or Kingdom Tower. It’s going to be even taller than the Burj Khalifa by a huge 1,000 meters.
Think back to 2010 when the Burj Khalifa in Dubai became famous for being super tall, reaching 828 meters. It was the tallest building in the world at that time.
The Jeddah Tower, developed by the Jeddah Economic Company, is gearing up to redefine the skyline with an expected height exceeding 1,000 meters.
This really big building isn’t just tall; it’s going to have lots of different things inside. Fancy homes, offices, apartments, and nice condos will all be part of it. What’s really cool is they’re planning to put the “world’s highest observatory” in there. Imagine the amazing views you could see from way up high.
