Nestled Among the Clouds –Jeddah Tower’s Ascent as the World’s Tallest Building

As the boundaries of construction shrink, our aspirations reach for the skies. The current tallest building in the world, the reigning champion of skyscrapers, is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai standing at 828 meters. However, its days at the top are numbered. The Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia, now under construction again, aims to push the boundaries of skyscraper design and innovation.

The exact height of the structure will be known after construction. Jeddah Economic Company (JEC), the firm behind the project, expects the Jeddah Tower’s height to reach 1,000 meters, making it the world’s tallest building upon completion.

Here’s What You Should Know About the Jeddah Tower – World’s Tallest Building 

The Jeddah Tower will be the premier business center of the city. It will include residential units, luxurious hotels with nearly 200 rooms, and a variety of restaurants to satisfy the culinary preferences of visitors. For convenient accessibility, the tower will feature 59 elevators, designed for a smooth and comfortable ascent, minimizing the discomfort often associated with tall buildings.

There will be an observatory deck at a record-breaking height of 2,000 feet above the ground. Visitors can enjoy a bird’s eye view of the nearby Red Sea. This vantage point offers a 360-degree view of the surrounding areas and a place for guests to sunbathe! 

According to the website, the tower’s primary purpose is to provide equitable access to social facilities in the region. For that, the developers are bringing over 360 residential apartments and 121 serviced apartments. The Jeddah Economic Company plans to sell and lease some of these units. Saudi Arabian residents can purchase apartments, while foreigners can do so with government approval.

Several concerns were raised regarding the tower’s height. Initially, it was stated to be over 5,000 feet tall but faced height reductions due to structural concerns. Its exact height remains undisclosed but will exceed 1 kilometer. Soil structure concerns and global financial crises fueled rumors about the project’s status. The project also faced challenges after the arrest of Kingdom Holding Corporation’s owner’s arrest. By 2019, the tower was 71 percent complete, aiming for a 2020 finish, though some critics predicted a longer timeline.

Future of Construction – Sustainable and Vertical?

The future of the building is tall and vertical. As architecture and construction are evolving rapidly, our insatiable desire to reach new heights pushes the boundaries of what is possible. Furthermore, with heightened environmental consciousness, we are compelled to innovate in every aspect of architectural design and construction and push to develop sustainable structures that harmonize with our planet. 

As our cities grow denser, and environmental concerns loom large, the construction industry is at a pivotal crossroads. It’s a future where innovative engineering, eco-conscious materials, and a desire to optimize both space and resources converge to reshape the skylines of tomorrow. From towering vertical gardens to energy-efficient smart buildings, this future promises not just to redefine the aesthetics of our cities but also to reduce their carbon footprint.

Innovative projects are sprouting worldwide, and right in Saudi Arabia, we have ‘THE LINE’ within NEOM—a remarkable 170-km long initiative boasting vertical connectivity, a high-speed rail system, and an array of sustainability features.
