The building is hideous but a 470m building in Egypt would be incredible. It would bring Egypt again on the skyscraper map since the days of ancient Egypt and their pyramids

Well no offense but situation in Egypt is very unstable now and this is one major reason why this tower will end up as a vision sadly.

Btw, the title is wrong, 470m is 1542ft and 1476ft is 450m

Haha yeah I also wonder who proposed something like this in a country where the political and economic situation isn't stable. My two choices: Someone is speculating in a economic groth in Egypt when the crisis is solved or someone wants to build a landmark for Cairo to give new hope (the second choice isn`t likely I know ). But I sadly also think it will be a neverbuilt proposal
But I opened the thread because a proposal like this can't be ignored from the biggest Skyscraperforum/Fanbase

This is a couple of years old. It's an old vision. Nothing more.

The tower is very impressive to say the truth TowerVerre but I can't see any potential economic growth anytime soon in Egypt either since it is the middle east (Gulf countries are exception) lol
