555m x 3 = 1665m ~ 1609m (one mile). Little difference...

Yeah, "Wow" everyone, "wow"

The stuctural engineering/design blurbs on this are interesting.

lol @ the size of the model.
you would think a mile high skyscraper project would be suffice to ensure a decent size model ,so you can actually see what the tower will look like.
as for the design, looks do-able. will take many years to engineer and construct. any idea when its supposed to start? and finish?

Can you imagine looking up at this tower from the base?? I remember looking up at the WTC when i was 11...and I couldn't believe what I was seeing. This is roughly 4 times taller. What would you all reckon this thing's chances of ACTUALLY getting built are? 20%? 50%?

A mile high tower was once proposed in Chicago back in the 1950's. It was to be called the Illinois Tower, but cost, and obvious construction dangers made it impossible to build (at least 50 years ago).




If this Mile Tower gets built in Saudi Arabia.......
