Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

HC Yu and Associates teamed with an elite international team to develop a luxury hotel of approximately two hundred and fi fty (250) Guest Rooms, eighty (80) Serviced Apartments and twenty four (24) high specification office floors, located in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.



The enormity of the Alrriyadh Tower Development, its desert location and harsh climate, its heavy and varied occupancy, and program, it seems almost pre-destined that this complex would rank not only among the world’s tallest buildings, but also among the largest burners of energy. We are working diligently to utilize the most innovative means of energy efficiency and minimal water usage to disrupt the environment as little as possible.
250 Guest Rooms
80 Serviced Apartments
Emphasis on energy efficiency and environmental protection however possible

Amazing! If the renders are only slithly accurate this building is in no way only 354m. In one picture Kingdom Center is in front of the building and it still is far far taller than the 302m supertall. Either the renders are really inaccurate, or the tower is maybe 354m to the top under the spire

Nice! It looks like the Helter Skelter that was planned for London.

Today, the ground work continues. The change of depth is clearly noticeable. Not sure about the red steel bars they installed today; probably a big sign for the project

They are mostly done with one side and working actively on the other.
