The Saudi Royal family today unveiled plans to construct the world’s tallest building – which will be an incredible one MILE high.
Kingdom Tower in Saudi Arabia will be 1.6km tall (one mile) when it is completed and consist of hotels, offices, luxury apartments and a shopping center.
The structure will be twice the height of the world’s current tallest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, and FIVE times as tall as Britain’s highest building, The Shard.
It will take a staggering 12 minutes to reach the top of the £12 billion building in the escalator.
The mega structure will boast a staggering 12 million cubic square feet of interior space – 12 times more than Number One Canada Water in London’s Canary Wharf.
