Construction Begins on Mile Tall Building in Saudi Arabia

Reaching for the sky...

Video embedded below.





"Saudi Arabia is currently working on a skyscraper that will be twice the size of the current record holder, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa (here’s the view from the top and what happens when lightning strikes that one). At 1 mile (1,600 m; 5,280 ft) tall, the Saudi development has a projected cost of $30bn. A city with a capacity of 80,000 people will be constructed around the tower, extending over an area of 23 million square metres.

Permission to build this beast of a building has been granted and construction work is under way.
