CAIRO | Zayed Crystal Spark | 200m | 650ft | 49 fl | Pro

Egypt is Building a Pretty Blingy Pyramid Skyscraper

[img]

Quote:
The tallest building in Egypt will once again be a kind of pyramid. Rising 650 feet above its surroundings, the gleaming pyramid-shaped skyscraper planned for Cairo will loom nearly 200 feet above the Great Pyramid of Giza, which spent 3,800 years as the world's tallest man-made structure (until the English built the Lincoln Cathedral in the 14th century). The proposed 49-story tower looks like a mash-up of San Francisco's Transamerica Pyramid skyscraper and King Tut's golden sarcophagus.

[...]

Egypt's proposed Zayed Crystal Spark zone, which includes the pyramid tower, is part of an 8.5-million-square-foot development project in Cairo, and will be surrounded by water and greenery, but sadly no sphinxes.

Yeah, it is about time Cairo goes 200m. It's also about time that there is a new tallest pyramid in the country the City is so massive yet has not a single skyscraper. Nice to see it on the brink of change.
