According to reports, Saudi Arabia plans to build the world’s tallest buildings as part of its $500 billion mega development plan.
Saudi authorities are reportedly planning to build two 500-meter high skyscrapers as part of the NEOM project. The skyscrapers would stretch from the Red Sea coast inland to the desert. The NEOM project is said to be the brainchild of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman which was unveiled five years ago.

The buildings would accommodate shops, offices and residential spaces and would be “revolutionary”. The designers are still working on the project.
The Burj Khalifa in Dubai is currently the tallest man-made structure in the world at 828 meters. Saudi Arabia has built the Jeddah tower that could surpass Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.

Construction of the Jeddah Tower began in 2013. It is said to have 167 floors and be over 1000 meters high. The Abraj al-Bait clock tower hotel in Makkah is said to be the fourth tallest building in the world at 601 meters.
